ANNUAL FUNDRAISERS

GTAB is run purely by the generousity of members and companies who give and participate in our annual fundraiser efforts. Typically, GTAB hosts four fundraisers a year. These activities change slightly with updates in the community and committee efforts/ideas. 

For the 2020 and 2021 school years, these activities were held virtually.  However, we believe in community and coming together as an organization to support our students in-person whenever that is possible.  We look forward to hosting both virtual and in-person events when the community and school district are open to those events. 

In addition to fundraiser activities, GTAB is also funded by purchases through our store and membership dues.

SILENT AUCTION

The auction and dinner are typically in December or January and involve bidding on items, baskets, and activities that are sponsored by each of our classrooms. The bidding can get intense for some fo our activities. If you are interested in donating an item, please reach out to our auction chairs. 

A Cloud of Color

COLOR BLAST RUN

The color blast run is an in-person event held in the Spring.  This is a joint effort event sponsored by GTAB and the PTA. Students and families run through colorful chalk and have a grand time. 

Quilted Pillow

QUILT AUCTION

Each year our students at Sablatura Middle School take part in creating a quilt as a part of their TPSP projects. The quilts are then presented and you can bid on the quilts to take one home. This is a special project that instills life-skills, research, and presentation skills for our students.
