Elementary students raise $2,539.73 in Pequot Lakes splash pad fundraiser
Third graders receive Dilly Bar treats for raising the most - $954.29 in donations
BREEZY POINT — Eagle View Elementary School students in grades K-4 raised $2,539.73 for the Pequot Lakes splash pad in a coin war that took place March 11-17.
Each grade had a goal to raise $150 to get a foot path paver for their graduating class at the splash pad, which is set to be built this spring at Trailside Park in Pequot Lakes.
Not only will each grade get their paver, the school as a whole will get one too.
Third graders brought in the highest amount of donations at $954.29, earning Dill Bars from Dairy Queen. Pequot Lakes Mayor Tyler Gardner and splash pad fundraising coordinator Jenni Gonczy delivered the treats Thursday, March 31.
Upcoming fundraisers for the splash pad include a sip and shop event from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 9, and a garage sale Saturday, May 14, at the Cole Memorial Building in Pequot Lakes.
Garage sale donations are being taken now. Items that cannot be accepted include car seats, cribs, large building materials, electronics including VHS tapes, and reference/text books. Call 218-821-3425 to schedule a donation drop off.
