Elementary PTA thanks fundraiser supporters

To the Editor:

The Worthington Estates Elementary School PTA would like to publicly thank the many local businesses and families who supported our school's annual pasta-dinner fundraiser. The March 1 event was hugely successful due largely to the help of local businesses that donated food, as well as items and services for the silent auction, which went along with the dinner.

More than 40 volunteers, from parents to students, pitched in to set up and man the games and other activities. In the end, more than 450 people attended the dinner, and we raised much-needed money for technology and other services in our children's classrooms.

It's so gratifying to see such a willingness to help our kids, even though the event was the same weekend as the high school's pancake breakfast, which was also staunchly supported by the community. We're very fortunate in Worthington to have such neighbors.
