Parties for a Cause

New this year, Friends of Braddock is launching parties for a cause! This is a great way to have fun, meet other Braddock families, and benefit the school.

Here’s how it works: you can participate by attending an event sponsored by another Braddock family and/or host an event yourself. By attending, you agree to make a donation (which will range in amount based on the activity) that goes directly to Friends of Braddock. The host family or families agree to host the event as a donation to Friends of Braddock, so fun is had by all, while money is raised for Friends of Braddock.

You could host an activity such as:

  • Game of flag football in the park
  • Hosting a movie night in your backyard
  • Sharing a skill you have with others such as flower arranging, cooking, or car maintenance.
  • Dinner party
  • Poker night
  • Chili cook off
  • Group hike
  • Museum visit
  • Anything you think would be fun for Braddock Magnet students and/or parents to participate in!

As an event host, the sky’s the limit when it comes to your ideas!

As the host of the event you choose:

  • Who is invited — kids, adults, or both, as well as the number of guests
  • What the event is, and what is included in the cost of tickets
  • Where it will be held
  • When it will be scheduled
  • Why — fundraising for Friends of Braddock of course!

If you have a great idea but lack the resources, we can try and team you up with another family to make it a reality. 100% of the ticket cost will be donated to the Friends of Braddock. If you have an idea, we’d love to hear it! Look for details on a tide pooling event in the coming months, hosted by a Braddock family.
