Chalmers Fun Night returns to North Delta

Funds raised will support new playground, other initiatives

On Thursday, June 8, Chalmers Elementary’s parent advisory council is hosting its second annual Fun Night fundraiser.

The event will feature a photobooth, cakewalk, 50-50 draw and raffle prizes, along with a marketplace with local vendors and a number of games and play areas.

The fundraiser will go to support technology purchases and cultural events, as well as a new playground for the elementary school.

“What aren’t we fundraising for?” PAC secretary Teres Zickefoose joked.

Last fall, the Chalmers PAC started collecting the $35,000 it needs to be eligible a cost-sharing grant from the Corporation of Delta to build the new playground.

So far, Zickefoose said the group is “on our way” to raising the money needed for the playground. Previous fundraising efforts included selling bricks with personalized messages and dedications that will be built into the new playground.

However, Fun Night is about more than just a new playground. It’s about supporting the community, from students to local businesses.

Last year, around 300 people attended the event. They’re hoping to have at least that many this year.

Chalmers Elementary Fun Night will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on June 8 at the school. Wristbands providing unlimited use of the seven inflatable play areas are available for $10. All purchases are cash only.
