The Acorn Family Fiesta FUNraiser
Saturday 10am- 2pm
April 22, 2023
at The Acorn School
Purchase Family Pass here! 

Dear Acorn Families and Friends,

You may know that The Acorn is a non-profit school, and we operate on a deficit every year.  As a result, we have one major fundraiser from which we hope to raise the majority of money to cover that deficit. This is the first time since COVID we are able to have a big fundraising event. We decided to make it a family fun event for everyone to attend. This Fiesta themed event will have a $50 family pass admission ticket, which covers open admission to the event and access to all Acorn activities and food booths on the playground for the entire family.

Raffle tickets available at $5, $10, and $25. Great prizes at each level!  Purchase either beforehand or at the event. Drawing will be held the Monday following the event.
Food Booths with offerings from various area favorite restaurants, including Taco Cabana! (included with your Family Pass admission)
Silent Auction available for bidding inside the Kindergarten wing during the event: featuring class projects and teacher outings, as well as dinners, overnights, favorite memorabilia, jewelry, photography packages, and lots more!
Wine Pull! For $20 you are guaranteed to take home a bottle of wine valued at $20 or more. In the past we have awarded bottles of wine valued over $50, $80, and even $100! 
Student Photo Wall! Families take home their child’s photo for a suggested $20 donation
Playground kid activities -Rocket launchers, spin art, hat making, face painting, book pull, toy walk, bouncy house, petting zoo, pony rides, etc.
Mariachi Band or DJ (we are hoping)

If you or your company would be interested in underwriting any of the event amenities listed above, please download our FUNraiser Underwriting Form.

Contact The Acorn office for more details (210)826-8804.

All of our parents are busy gathering prizes for the event and if any of our future parents, alumni, and friends have access to prizes or donated gift certificates for the Fundraiser, we would be thrilled if you would help us out; please let us know!  Click here for a copy of our Donation Request Letter to share with businesses. If you know someone or some place that would like to donate please have them complete this Donor Response Form. 

This Fundraiser is going to be tons of fun for the entire family and we’d love to have you join us. Please complete the attached form and email, mail, or turn into the office to reserve your family pass and to purchase raffle tickets.

Thanks for always being an active part of the Acorn family.
