GEF Soupor Bowl - January 25th, at 6 PM
Published on Jan 18, 2013 11:07

Dear Woodview Families,

The Grafton Education Foundation(just named the 2012 Outstanding Community Group by the Grafton Chamber of Commerce) is shaking things up with a new fundraiser called the Soupor Bowl.  Yes, that's SOUP or BOWL. It's a soup sampling and bowling extravaganza the weekend before the real Super Bowl.  It will take place next Friday, January 25th, at 6 PM in the gorgeously remodeled and expanded Grafton Pub and Bowl (new banquet room just completed this week!).

Go ahead and buy your tickets now so you are guaranteed a ceramic bowl handmade by a Grafton student (thanks to a GEF grant of a new pottery studio at John Long Middle School).  Your support of GEF has done all sorts of cool things like that, from the low ropes challenge course in the Grafton an amazing Anatomy in Clay learning system.

Despite all the incredible grants funded by GEF...they had to TURN DOWN more than 70% of their grant requests last year because there was not have enough money to fund them.  Imagine, all those great ideas left on the table.  Well, maybe this year…with your support.

The GEF Soupor Bowl is going to be aBLAST!
