Dear friends, families, kids business owners, donors, volunteers and all those who supported our Winter Fundraiser. We are so humbled by your generosity. We raised $17,000 at Saturday night's event, maybe a record!?! We cannot even begin to express how happy we are to have replenished our OB PTO operating budget and more. This enables the PTO to continue to do its good work at our school. Thank you!
