1. ANNUAL AUCTION BENEFIT
The Riverside dinner auction is the school’s largest fundraiser occurring annually on the second Saturday in March. Enjoy an evening of fellowship, delicious food, and incredible items and experiences up for auction. Preparations begin right after Christmas. Each school family is asked to contribute items or services for the auction. Many volunteers are needed for the success of this event.
The Riverside Jog-A-Thon is an annual event held in the fall. Students, families, and staff walk, run and fellowship around the track to raise needed funds for our school. We praise God for your generosity throughout the years! Jog-a-thon sponsors help enable us to maintain a campus of spiritual and academic excellence.
3. ANNUAL POINSETTIA SALE
This event occurs between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Poinsettias are pre-ordered for the holiday season and then distributed to area merchants and businesses. This is a great opportunity to gift employees, friends, and family or decorate your home or church. Sales begin in early November and order forms will be sent home with students. Volunteers are needed to take orders, unload trucks, organize the poinsettias, and make deliveries. Pickup date: Thursday, Nov 29, 2018.
4. SCRIP (GIFT CARD FUNDRAISING PROGRAM): FUNDRAISE WHILE YOU SHOP.
Simply change your method of payment. The only planning ahead you have to do is deciding what scrip (gift cards) you need to purchase, and even this revolves around your schedule. From taking on a home improvement project to planning a date night out even just buying gas and groceries, you can order scrip beforehand. They make great gifts, too. For every gift card you purchase, the school earns a percentage and the student’s family earns service hours. Watch the eNews for order and delivery dates. Use the attached form and turn into the office.
