    Thank you for the wonderful support of this event and our school! We raised $4,650!


    10th Annual Basket Bingo Fundraiser

    February 21, 2020


    This will be the ONLY fundraiser that the PTO will be doing this Spring! In order for us to continue funding the many field trips, supplies, and teacher requests we get each year, we need to have a successful event. Thank you in advance for your participation and/or donation. Your efforts and support make Park Forest Elementary a wonderful place for our children to learn!

    Basket Bingo is a family-friendly fundraiser. Each classroom chooses a theme and donates items to create a basket filled with themed goodies that can be won at the bingo night. Kiddos will play for great prizes while parents can bid on some awesome baskets!

    Food will be available for purchase starting at 5 p.m.

    Bingo begins at 6 p.m.

    Basket raffles occur at 7 p.m.

    This year's themes include:

    • Arts and Crafts
    • Baby Care
    • Breakfast
    • Building Fun
    • Car Care
    • Cats
    • Chocolate Lovers
    • Coffee Lovers
    • Cooks and Bakers
    • Dogs
    • Games/Puzzles
    • Ice Cream Party
    • International/Gourmet Foods
    • It's Science
    • Movie Night
    • Penguin Pride
    • Penn State
    • Pizza Party
    • Pretend Play
    • Spa Day
    • Superheroes
    • Tea Lovers

    If you have access to items for any of these themes, please feel free to collect them for donations! Be on the lookout for a Sign-Up Genius sent from your teacher... That is a really easy way to fill the baskets up! We are asking that all items are sent in by Friday, February 14.

    Have some baskets at home that you don’t need? We would love to re-purpose them for you! Please send them in with your child and we will put them to good use! This allows us to save money. . . so more can go directly to pay for the many programs and field trips that the PTO provides!
    If you can't attend the event no worries, we make it easy to buy your chances... you do not need to be there to win! We'll send home a ticket order form that you can return with your student.

    For more information, questions, concerns or to volunteer for the Bingo/Auction committee, please contact the event chair Melissa Stone.
