2014 MCLIMS Sociables: Host Sign-Up

Sign up to host a fundraising social or party! Come up with a creative theme, place, date, time, etc. then plan and host your event! Remember, you’ll be responsible for the cost of the party (so host with a friend if you like), but the money raised from people bidding for a “seat” at your event will all go to our kids and the school!  This is such a fun way to meet other parents and raise funds at the same time!
