CAR WASH FUNDRAISER  Sunday, October 4th 2015, 11:00 am -3:00PM, 8 Myrtle Avenue  (rain date is Sunday, October 18th)

The girls are signing up to cover one of three shifts at the car wash. The shifts are 10:45-1:00, 12:00-2:00 and 1:00-3:15. (Overlap is to maintain coverage throughout) The first and last shifts include a few minutes for set up and clean up. If we could have roughly 1/3 of the team at each, that would be great. Also, we need at least 1 but preferably 2-3 parent volunteers at each shift as well to help with oversight, etc.  Please email clairehertan@gmail.com to let her know if you can help with covering a shift.  Any questions her number is 203 557 4507.

Each swimmer is requested to sell a minimum of 5 tickets in advance of the Car Wash at $10.00.  They have been given 10 and we can give them more if they need them.

Money raised (cash or checks) can be:

1.) Returned to your team captains Aileen, Emily or Kacey at practice;

2.) Mailed to Lily’s Dad (Ned Dane 12 Prospect Rd., Westport); OR

3.) Dropped off at the car wash on October 4th in a sealed envelope marked Staples Girls Swim and Dive.

Checks should be made out to:  STAPLES GIRLS SWIM AND DIVE

Selling at least 5 tickets per player is very important. Money raised from our pre-car wash ticket sales will go directly to support Staples Girls Swim and Dive. Monies raised the day of the car wash will be split 50/50 between the Girls Swim and Dive Team and Boys Water Polo Team.
