Thank you to all of those in the Burnt Mills community that attended the PTA Hot Cocoa 1 Mile Fun Run on Saturday, December 2nd. We were pleased by the great turnout of families and we are grateful for your support. Your contributions raised just over $2,000!!! This money will be used to help fund the cultural arts programs at Burnt Mills Elementary School this year.
We are excited to announce that Sra. Arango’s kindergarten class had the highest participation! They win a hot cocoa party in the classroom.
While the Fun Run was a great success, we couldn’t have done it without all of our volunteers, sponsors and the generous donations of community businesses! We would especially like to thank Ray Mensah for his delightful DJ’ing, Lanishka Clarke-Hedgman for her fabulous face painting, and PTA Treasurer Margaret Holt for her terrific T-shirt decorating. Volunteers assisted with set-up, keeping runners encouraged on the course and serving hot cocoa.
We also would like to thank the following local businesses:
· Giant Foods and Trader Joe’s for generously donating our hot cocoa toppings
· Bonjour Waffles food truck for coming to our event and providing delicious waffles
· Recess Catering, Eterna Day Spa, Alchemy Salon, Blue Heron Wellness, Bark! of Silver Spring, and Sweet Frog for donating door prizes.
