This year we have decided to reunite RELAX and Barlow Lacrosse for an evening of fun, laughter and food as well as raising money for the two organizations.
On Saturday, April 25 at the Easton Community Center we will be hosting a RELAX/Barlow Dinner & Auction just for adults. This will be a pot luck dinner and we are asking people to bring a main course, side dish, appetizer or dessert (enough for 6 to 8 people). This is a terrific chance for everyone to get together and have fun while supporting two great organizations.
Some of you may not know that Boys and Girls Lacrosse is not fully funded at the High School so the teams and Booster Clubs have to work to raise funds to offset the costs of uniforms, coaches, equipment, buses and supplies. Similarly, the RELAX program, in order to keep registration fees reasonable, has to raise money to cover its operational expenses.
So what better way to raise some money for both organizations than to get together for a dinner and auction (both Silent and Live auctions will take place). Beer, Wine and Soft Drinks will be supplied and a professional area DJ will provide the music.
What: Pot luck dinner – bring a main course, side dish, appetizer or dessert (enough for 6 to 8 people)
Where: Easton Community Center
When: Saturday April 25, 7-11 PM
Cost: $25 per person
To purchase tickets: Go to the left hand menu here on the HomePage and click on "Forms."
Auction Items: In order to make this successful, we are also looking for Auction items to be donated. Great selling items in the past have been tickets to sporting event, shows, restaurants, sports and entertainment memorabilia, artwork, jewelry, gift baskets, use of a vacation homes, and services such as landscaping, interior design, massages, photography, computer classes, just to name a few. Kathy Katts has volunteered to be our Donation Chairperson so expect to be hearing from her! If you have some ideas and want to let her know her email is
Event Planning: We need your help organizing the event! There is a spot on the ticket form where you can sign up. And we welcome all to attend our next planning meeting on Thursday, February 5th in the Annex (opposite the cafeteria hallway entrance) at Barlow, 7PM.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
The RELAX/Barlow Lax Dinner/Auction is an event just for parents that we used to hold annually some years ago. It was always a lot of fun and a great fundraising event. We are excited about its revival!
There are lots of jobs we need assistance with. We'll be sending out an email in the next week with a list of areas where we need more help. Anything you can do would be great appreciated.
If you haven't registered your child for Spring 2015 lax, please don't wait another day.
