Goshen Elementary’s Money Mania kicked off on Monday.
According to Traci Shaver of the school’s Parent Teacher Organization, Money Mania is held in conjunction with the school’s fall festival.
“The Money Mania fundraiser is actually part of our fall festival,” Shaver said. “The fall festival is GES’s biggest fundraiser of the year.”
The festival will be held Thursday, Oct. 29, this year. “Supper will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the games will begin at 6 p.m.,” Shaver said.
The Money Mania fundraiser is simple is held for five weeks.
“With Money Mania we ask the kids to bring in different coins each week,” Shaver said. “We will do this for five weeks. At the end of Money Mania the classes that have collected the most money will be awarded a prize from the PTO,” Shaver said.
According to Shaver, in the past the prize has been a pizza party and recognition.
Students are asked to bring pennies Aug. 31 through Sept. 4, nickels Sept. 7 through Sept. 11, dimes Sept. 14 through Sept. 18, quarters Sept. 21 through Sept. 25, and dollars Sept. 28 through Oct. 2.
“All money collected during Money Mania and the fall festival goes right back into the school to purchase items for our children,” Shaver said.
“There is no specific goal set for this fundraiser.”
