6:42pm – We are closing in on the end of this fundraiser. What a showing we’ve had. Let’s get that last push in! With 120 donations we still need 80 donations to meet our goal of 200 donations! But we have raised $22,968 which is awesome!!

4:55pm – 106 donors! $21,183! You guys rock! With just about 2 hours to go, we need a final push to get those remaining 94 donors on board. Let’s do it for those amazing kids we love.

4:00pm – We did it! We have made it past the $20,000 mark with 3 hours to go! 98 donors have contributed so far. If you prefer to contribute via cash or check, you can still drop your donation off tomorrow morning in the locked FOABE box in the office.

2:28pm – With 82 donors we have almost surpassed the $20,000 mark!! That is incredible. We still have 4 1/2 hours to go in support of our IB program at Birney. This fundraiser will help us towards our goal for the year of $145,000 to fund the programs and learning opportunities that make our school one-of-a-kind.

Don’t forget to spread the emails to your friends and family, too!
