Spooky Boo Blast Fun Raises Funds for El Morro
The public is welcome to enjoy pre-Halloween fun at El Morro PTA’s annual Boo Blast carnival Friday, Oct. 23 from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m.
People of all ages will enjoy the spooky Haunted House, rock climbing wall, Ferris wheel, slides, face painting, carnival games, photo booths, costume contests, and food trucks.
The public is also invited to peruse silent auction items donated by parents to support Boo Blast, the PTA’s largest fundraiser. Proceeds support PTA sponsored programs.
“We are grateful of the support we receive from our parents and community to make this event possible,” said Chris Duddy, principal of El Morro. “It’s a fun event for everyone to enjoy while also helping fund PTA programs that enhance our students’ educational experience here at El Morro.”
LBHS Parents Plan Get-Together
The Laguna Beach High School PTA is sponsoring its first Oktoberfest fundraiser, open to all LBHS parents, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29, at a private Irvine Cove home.
Parents of high-school aged children have fewer opportunities to get together with other high school parents on a casual basis, explained Laura Keller, president of the LBHS PTA. Oktoberfest provides a “fun, inexpensive and casual opportunity” in which to meet other parents and welcome newcomers to the district.
The $50 per person ticket covers music, German delicacies and beverages and valet parking. Order tickets at www.lbhspta.org
