2/21: Southview Elementary playground

Posted:

Chippewa Falls (SOUTHVIEW ELEMENTARY) – Southview is hosting a Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction/Raffle fundraiser for a $200,000 barrier free playground, it's the first of its kind in Chippewa Falls.

The Southview Elementary School Playground Committee will hold a Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction/Raffle Fundraiser on Thursday, February 22, 2018 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Southview Elementary School, 615 A Street. There will be a silent auction and raffle with gift certificates to local merchants, an autographed Packer football, Minnesota Timberwolves tickets and more!

100% of the proceeds will help support a new, fully-inclusive community playground, a first in Chippewa Falls. We believe no one should have to sit on the sidelines. Ramps will allow access to play structures for all children, including those in wheelchairs. A poured rubber surface will cover the majority of the playground and allows children to safely access various parts of it. The playground will enhance children’s ability to enjoy challenges at their own developmental levels and gives every child the chance to play. The cost of the playground is $200,000. The PTO has raised over $175,000, but need to have the whole amount in the coming weeks so we can order it so it is ready to install in August for a community build.

Tickets are $7 for adults ($6 in advance), $4 ($3 in advance) for children 11 & under, and children 3 and under are free. There will be a maximum of $30 per family.

Tickets can be purchased in advance by emailing Lynette Severson at sseverson@charter.net

If you are interested in donating, please contact Principal Sara Denure at Southview Elementary School during school hours at 715-726-2411.
