Baldwinsville Keep the Ball Rolling has announced the Baldwinsville Teachers’ Association will continue its generous support of the all-night alcohol/drug-free celebration that takes place immediately following Baker High School’s Senior Ball.
“Every kindergarten child receives a book from the BTA. We then continue to support activities that improve our students’ scholastic progress and, through KBR, we culminate our support by presenting a Barnes and Noble gift card to every Baker High School senior,” said BTA President Beth Chetney explaining the role the BTA plays as Baldwinsville students progress through the school system. “We want our students to continue learning long after they graduate and giving them the gift cards expresses that wish.”
The list of organizations supporting KBR continues to grow. A certified-used vehicle will be donated by Burdick Automotive BMW, Ford, Lexus, and Toyota-Scion, and Allstate Insurance has pledged an iPad III. The Optimists, Kiwanis and the senior class have all stepped forward with much needed monetary contributions. However, KBR is still seeking volunteers to assist on the day of the event, and would also like to encourage participation in the following two fundraisers:
From 8 to 10 a.m. March 24, a breakfast will be held at Applebee’s. Tickets ($5 each) can be purchased by calling 345-4284 or emailing MrsDiCap@twcny.rr.com.
On April 17, Hudson & Mowins will donate 100 percent of the funds raised from oil changes performed. Call 635-5681 to schedule an appointment and be sure to let them know you are calling in support of KBR.
