Community members gathered at Sunnyside’s Miner’s Trading Post for the fourth parking lot party fundraiser on Friday. The event, hosted annually, lasted through the afternoon and featured games, live entertainment, great food and fun prizes.
The proceeds from the event will be donated to Bruin Point Elementary School. In the past, money raised has been used for such purposes as acquiring T-shirts for the student body as well as other expenses such as field trips, books for students as well as a portion given to teachers to help in the expense of classroom supplies and other needed materials.
This year’s fundraiser ended with a grand total of $4,200 being raised, a dollar amount that surpassed that of last year’s by $200.
