Sweet fundraiser for FHS programs set Sunday

Dec 05, 2013
PHOTO SUBMITTED Fairfield High School student Rachel Funkhouser puts the finishing touches on one of the dozens of gift baskets as she helped prepare for Chocolate Sunday. The 20th annual parent-run Chocolate Sunday benefitting the high school band, choir and drama programs is set for Sunday afternoon at Fairfield Middle School.

Sweet sounds and sweet treats will be available for all at the 20th annual Chocolate Sunday fundraiser 2-4 p.m. Sunday in the Fairfield Middle School cafetorium.

Talented Fairfield High School vocal and instrumental musicians, under the direction of Jim Edgeton, Zach Reiter, and Connie Keller, will provide entertainment while guests nibble on holiday treats and browse through more than 100 gift baskets available for silent auction.

“One reason this event has been around so long is that it’s such a great way to celebrate the season,” said Sue Hucke, chairwoman of the event. “With so many items and gift certificates donated by dozens of local businesses and families, there’s a huge selection of gift baskets at a wide range of starting bids.”

A few of the gift baskets this year are extra special, containing china in the Spode Christmas Tree pattern and Longaberger baskets.

In addition to the gift baskets, tickets will be sold throughout the afternoon for two separate raffles. One raffle prize is a quilt made up of more than 70 patterns constructed by Mary Phipps.

The other is a package, including an overnight at Catfish Bend Inn and Spa at Pzazz in Burlington, with four breakfast buffets at the Edgewater Grille and four $25 gift cards to Fun City.

Drawings for both raffles will be held at the end of the event.

The annual parent-run fundraiser benefits the FHS drama, instrumental music and vocal music programs.

Tickets will be available at the door for $5. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m.
