Pool Party Fun For A Cause

I finally have a chance to show you a few of the pics from the back to school pool party / school supply fundraiser we threw last month. You know me, I’m always looking for a reason to gather friends together AND do a little good. When I heard about Twizzlers and Jolly Rancher‘s partnership with Gym Class Heroes to create the ultimate Summer Twist List, I immediately thought —

School Fundraiser for Teachers!!!

What? Sound like unobvious pairing? Not really.

Again, I’m applying some of those simple party planning principles I shared with you yesterday:

Planning A Fundraiser? Here's a guaranteed recipe for success

Things that don’t seem necessarily related become perfect partners in the right setting, all it takes is a little creativity.

So here it is, the last minute event we threw together that raised more than $650 for local teachers in our community! Once again San Antonio bloggers really pulled together to support something we so strongly believe in — a great education for our children and a community that lifts up the teachers who are making that happen.

Our teacher left will full hearts and car loads of supplies to take back to their schools. It’s things like this I really enjoy, and hope I get to do much more of in the future!

Thanks so much to our wonderful sponsors Twizzlers, Jolly Rancher, and Melissa And Doug who helped make this happen.
