If you’re a teacher in the local area then you know how limited school funding is for classroom supplies. In some cases just $1 per student.

The Orange Ale House, 517 Boston Post Road, wants to help.

For the months of September and October, the business is offering all teachers the opportunity to raise a little extra money for their classroom supplies.

Here’s how it could work:

Set up a Happy Hour party at Orange Ale House. Owner Jim Hassenmayer will provide unlimited Free pizza and a free beverage (select beers, house wines, and various drinks included) for each of the guests.

YOU sell tickets for whatever price you’re comfortable with, ie $8, $10, $12, $15 Etc. Also maybe do a raffle.

You collect the money, you keep the money. It’s an after work party that can raise some needed money for classroom school supplies. That’s it. No obligation or minimum required.

To book one, email Lindsey at events@orangealehouse.com or call 203-795-0707 or simply stop in.

 

EDITOR’S NOTE: Once you’ve set a date, send an e-mail to orangectlive01@gmail.com and we will help get the word out to the entire community for you.
