Fortinos “Fuel For Kids” – Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

On Wednesday, September 27th, between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., please bring your family, friends, neighbours, and an appetite to Fortinos (Fiesta Mall) at 102 Hwy #8, Stoney Creek, ON, L8G 4H3 to meet professional race car driver Dave Connelly, along with his car (a great opportunity for photos), and to enjoy a barbeque dinner.

Volunteers from Memorial Stoney Creek School, along with the Fortinos’ Team and Dave Connelly’s team, will be running this BBQ where every dollar spent will go directly to Memorial School because all of the food has been generously donated!! So leave the cooking to us, come on out and support our school!! The BBQ starts early and finishes late so you can attend even if your children have events to attend that evening! We look forward to seeing everyone there!

At the BBQ, Piller’s Sausages, Hot Dogs, and “Snack packages- which will include: a drink, and snacks etc.” will be sold for $5.00. Again, all of the food is donated, so every dollar raised goes directly to Memorial Stoney Creek School and will be used to purchase additional iPads and accessories for iPads for our students in all grades to use!!

During the BBQ, raffle tickets will also be sold with the prize being (2) spots to attend a day with Dave learning to drive one of his actual 500hp stock cars at a real race track…..This prize has been donated by Dave and Fortinos and the prize will be drawn at the end of this year’s Food For Kids Tour. School Council and Home & School will also be running special events during the BBQ.

On this same day, Students at Memorial School will also have a visit from Dave Connelly, along with his race car, where Dave will do a presentation to the students about race care safety. This school presentation will take place at 1:45 p.m. on the back playground.

We sincerely thank the Fortinos’ Team and Dave Connelly’s team for supporting this fundraising event for Memorial School and are all looking forward to it!!
