Butter Braids: experience the WOW!

It’s time again for the Butter Braid Fundraiser.  Just in time for the holidays, these make great gifts!

What are Butter Braids?  They are frozen pastry dough, made with 10% real butter, giving them a rich, homemade taste.  They come in various filling flavors: Apple, Blueberry & Cream Cheese, Cherry, Cinnamon, Raspberry, Strawberry & Cream Cheese and Four Cheese Herb & Marinara.  This year Caramel Rolls are also available.  They are delicious and beautiful and easy to prepare…thaw, bake and eat!

Check them out for yourself on the internet at www.butterbraid.com

Butter Braids are sold for $14 each.  This year the profits will support Poly PTA sponsored activities and clubs such as our White Ribbon Week, Spanish Club, Talent Show and End of Year Celebration. We are also continuing our efforts to expand STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) opportunities at Poly and ensure every student has an iPad or Chromebook for their use in class.

We are excited to offer prizes to the top sellers, so please plan to participate!
A few tips for selling:

  • We encourage you to be safe when selling.
  • Sell with a parent or adult accompanying you.
  • Sell at workplaces, church groups or other groups.

Important: Payment MUST be collected at the time of the sale.  

Poly Drive PTA pays for the Butter Braids up front so we need to have the payment from your customers up front also.  If you would like to cover the cost of your orders and then collect at the time of delivery, that is up to you.  Checks should be made out to Poly Drive PTA.

In order for this fundraiser to run smoothly we are asking for your help in one additional area.  If the student wants to figure their sales and money all on their own, please have the order and the money collected double checked by an adult.  We have received many orders in the past that had to be returned to the student for correction, slowing down the process.

  • The order forms need to be turned in by Wednesday, November 29.  
  • Delivery to the school will be Wednesday, December 13.
  • Mark your calendar to pick up your orders on Wednesday December 13 between 1:00 and 3:00.  We have very limited freezer storage for any orders that are not picked up.

Thank you in advance for all your hard work and support.  Please contact chairperson Tori Koch if you have any questions!
