This event for Roosevelt boys only (just as the Princess Ball was a girls only event), but any parent may volunteer to help. If you are able to help in any capacity, please email Amber Moeckel at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you in advance for your help making this a great event!
Art Show Help Needed…
Believe it or not, but the end of the school year is approaching and our Art teacher, Marlene Perez, has Art Show planning on her mind. She will be needing volunteers to prep, label, install and take down the art show. If you can staple, she needs your help! Please contact Marlene at email@example.com

Speaking Benefit for a Brighter Future…
Over the years our marvelous BBF committee has dwindled as kids outgrew the district and volunteers moved their energy on to the next deserving project. The committee is down to a skeleton crew and we need fresh blood, energy, and helping hands to make BBF 2015 as fabulous as in prior years. The committee has already finished a lot of the early activities (did lot of work going after sponsors, the venue is set, marketing is going well) and now it’s fun for the party planning. Decorations, kids’ activities (costumes, how they will interact with the guests, etc), catering, and so forth; it can all be fun if find a group to work on it together as a team. Plus our theme is a tropical cruise — just think of the opportunities — shuffle board, islands named after sponsors, kids in sailor hats, this is a fun theme! If you’re interested in being a part of this effort, please contact Erika Pretell at email@example.com
