Social Fundraisers

Social fundraisers are organized and hosted by Cossitt parents and signups are offered online. These fundraisers raise funds for the school while providing an avenue for the Cossitt parent community to meet and build relationships.

We invite you to sign up to participate to host an event, or to submit a party idea for next school year. We are all ready for fun and in-person events again and look forward to your participation to support the PTC.

How do I sign-up to host/co-host:

Note your name and list a party idea, or sign up for a specific event as listed. ie… Amy Smith (open to host any party) or Amy Smith (Oktoberfest). All hosts will help share the cost of the event with their fellow co-hosts.

Share if you are interested in co-hosting an event with a group and add to notes the number of people you have in your group and/or names.

If you have an idea and need more hosts, we will pull the people who have signed up to “host any party” together.

Have fun and get creative! 2021-22 is going to be an epic year for social fun!
