To the editor,
Last Sunday and every Sunday going forward, a unique fundraiser has begun for the new school: New Glasgow Academy.
At the Aberdeen flea market from 10 a.m. to noon tickets will be sold five for $5. At 12:15 p.m. the draw will take place for 20 per cent of that day’s sales. The winner must be present to claim the prize. The lucky winner also gets to draw from the deck of cards hoping for the Ace of Spades. If the Ace of Spades is drawn then the winner get the “pot,” if not, then the remaining 30 per cent goes into build the pot for the next week. The card drawn then gets destroyed. The next week this is repeated until the ace of spades is drawn.
The other 50 per cent from each Sunday’s sales goes directly towards our new school. The odds get better every week as the deck gets smaller and the pot gets bigger.
So for a $5 investment to our fundraiser you have in effect contributed directly to every child who will attend this wonderful school. The “enhancements” to this school will make the children eager to attend. Who wouldn’t want a remarkable natural play, playground, a beautiful gym or a music room to mould young minds? Each child deserves nothing less.
For a $5 investment every student will benefit. Your return on investment… immeasurable.
Remember it takes a village but each person can make a difference. Please support out fundraiser this Sunday, every child will thank you for it. See you at the Aberdeen flea market.
