Tickets for the Pottsboro HS PTO Mardi Gras Extravaganza event are on sale and will be available at all home PHS basketball games. This is the first major fundraiser by the group and proceeds will be used for fees for PHS students’ Advanced Placement (AP) exams and other college entrance fees.
The Mardi Gras Extravaganza will be held Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Silver Wings Ballroom at the North Texas Regional Airport (the old Perrin Field). Tickets are $35 per person or $50 per couple. In addition sponsor tables are also available. The event includes a catered dinner, Silent Auction featuring wonderful prizes and gifts and a dance featuring the music of Rocky and the Bullwinkles. The Silent Auction will open at 6:30 p.m. with dinner being served from 7-8 with the dance following until 11 p.m.
PTO officers and volunteers have been working on this event since the fall to benefit PHS students. Volunteers are still needed to assist with decorations. Watch the Pottsboro HS PTO Facebook page for announcements about the times of weekly decorating events. There will be a group at the Silver Wings Ballroom this Thursday from 5-7 p.m. working on decorations. Please join us there!
If you would like to donate an item to the Silent Auction or volunteer your time please contact the PHS PTO at Pottsboro.firstname.lastname@example.org. Please remember that all donations are welcome including your time to make decorations and set up tables for the event, said Michelle Urquizo, PHS PTO president.
A lot of time and effort has gone into this event and it promises to be spectacular for an amazing group of high school students. The PHS Student Council will assist with serving at the Mardi Gras Extravaganza.
