First Trimester Fundraising Report


Mizzentop’s fundraising efforts have been tremendous so far this year! As you know, your Institutional Advancement Committee strives to create multiple avenues for supporting the school so that families may choose their preferred method of raising money.

So far this year we have had a record-breaking Golf Outing in which we had 44 golfers, while an additional 12 people joined us for the Oktoberfest dinner at Quaker Hill Country Club. With the core sponsorship of Vibrant Health and Lebenthal Asset Management, we were able to raise over $11,000.

Many thanks to Samantha Butts, who took the bull by the horns and created our pie sale fundraiser in partnership with American Pie Company. We love fundraisers that take a necessity (like buying a Thanksgiving pie) and use it to benefit the school. The top sellers were Paeten and Preston Parker, who together sold 25 pies! Way to go. In all, this fundraiser generated $600 in funds for the school.

Our Family Bonding Day at Liberty Paintball provided an opportunity for the kids and their parents to enjoy a fun day of paintball on private fields at a discounted rate. ALL the money raised went to Mizzentop! The Ruisi family provided the staff, equipment and paint at no cost to us, while The Mentor family graciously provided the after event BBQ. Families had a blast, and our school made over $2,400.

If you haven’t had a chance to participate in a fundraiser yet, fear not! There will be plenty of opportunities in the coming months.

We have just launched our Annual Fund Initiative and raffle tickets are currently on sale (with a grand prize of $2,500!!). Each family will receive 4 tickets to sell at $25 each. If you are unable or unwilling to sell your tickets, please return them to the school. Only 400 tickets will be sold. If we do sell all of the tickets, the grand prize will be 50% of the total take.

These events that benefit all of our children are fully powered by dedicated Mizzentop volunteers. Consider joining us in any efforts or by planning your own fundraiser. Email cuneoe@mizzentop.org to learn more. Help is never turned away! We are truly thankful to all who support our school.
