Au Gres-Sims PTO hosting fundraising bazaar

Posted

Au GRES — The third annual Au Gres-Sims Parent-Teacher Organization bazaar Dec. 9 in the AGS multipurpose room is expected to include around 50 vendors.

PTO President Susan Bublitz said vendor fees for the bazaar raise money for various PTO projects.

“We raise funds for scholarships, extra equipment that’s not in the school’s budget, field trips, spectator buses — those sort of things,” she said.

Home-based direct sales businesses, homemade crafts and baked goods are sold during the bazaar. Last year there were 43 vendors present, raising close to $1,100 in vendor fees, Bublitz said.

“We think we’ll surpass that this year,” she said.

Along with the vendor market, Bublitz said the bazaar will include raffles and concessions. The raffle prizes are donated from participating vendors, who pay $25 per table, or $30 if they need electricity. Bublitz said a few vendor spots may still be up for grabs.

Shoppers and sellers alike have praised the first two PTO bazaars, Bublitz said.

“We have been told by vendors that this was their largest sale, and our shoppers have been very pleased with the selection of things to purchase, and how well it was run and set up,” she said. “We’ve had very positive feedback. We actually have people that pay ahead for the next year.”

The bazaar is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to

4 p.m. For more information, contact Bublitz at 989-450-5540.
