Parents cast your vote & help raise money for Bittersweet Elementary!

Posted on April 15, 2016

Parents, show your support for P-H-M’s elementary school leadership AND help raise money for Bittersweet Elementary School!

At the P-H-M Education Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Gala on April 23, P-H-M principals will perform Vaudeville-style acts, competing against other P-H-M school teams. 

All the acts will be unique and definitely entertaining, but only one team—the one with the most votes—will win the PHaMmy award!

Here’s how you can help raise money for our school:

  • Votes cost $10 each and you can cast multiple votes between now and the evening of the Gala.
  • 50% of what each team raises will go directly back to that team’s schools!
  • The first 100 votes for each team will be matched dollar for dollar by Gary Fox of Crowe Horwath. (Mr. Fox is P-H-M Board of School Trustees President and an Education Foundation Board Member.)




You bet they do! Just watch the video.
