Poly Drivers: March Madness nets funds and fun

March Madness mixed old favorites and new features. Initial figures from the Mar. 31 event indicate about $500 raised from the Dino-ize Croff effort. And dessert enthusiasts paid about $1,500 at the new Decadent Dessert Auction. After expenses, $8,593 was raised to benefit the PTA STEM fund at Poly Drive.
A highlight of the evening was Principal’s Croff stint as a T-Rex. He marched through the hallways in the inflatable suit, as students reached their fundraising goal.
The PTA extends a sincere thank you to all volunteers and the generous March Madness sponsors:
