We are proud to support the first ever Downey Fall Festival and Creepy Crawl Kid Parade that will be taking place on Sunday, October 23rd! The event looks to sponsor the Downey Elementary School located in Westwood for their strides to improve fantastic enrichment programs such as the Revolutionary Encampment, the Museum of Science Electromagnetism and the River Classroom Squannoacook, among others.
This fundraiser will include countless activities for friends, families and especially children. Some of these attractions include haunted house, various games, bouncing houses, barn babies, a bake sale, themed rides and lovely music. What this event sees is the potential in our youth and the importance we must place on uplifting programs as such for them. The hope is to have at least 400 attendees with the majority coming from the Westwood, Norwood and Dedham areas, although all are welcome of course!
The ways in which money will be raised will come primarily through the silent auction whose items will come from the generosity of the public, some of which will be raffled off to the luckiest of spectators. There is no strict boundary as to what can be auctioned, as long as its appropriateness and ability to raise money for a better cause are understood. Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated and are tax deducted through the acquired tax identification number (45-2476131) of the event. In addition, it must be known that the key for this project is the sense of an effort towards giving and the fulfillment it brings someone, therefore the dollar amount, be it big or small, has no meaning in the end.
If you, your company or your party of close acquaintances chooses to get involved in this deserving cause for children you will be greatly recognized in Westwoods local paper, at the day of the actual event, all school newsletters, the Westwood Press and the Westwood Patch. Donations can be sent to the following address, and the Fall Festival and all of its representatives cant stress enough how much they value all of the support.
Downey Fall Festival- Downey PTO Downey School 250 Downey Street Westwood, MA 02090
