Please join us for the 2017 Franklin Bash - the school’s annual parent/teacher social, sponsored by the Franklin PTO.  It’s a great night out! You will enjoy delicious food and drinks, spend quality time with your Franklin “family” and meet some new friends, too.  The Bash is one of the school’s biggest fundraisers; we will offer a Casino Night, terrific live auctions throughout the evening, the always popular Teachers' Treasures, and Basket Raffles that you will be able to try and win with your Casino Ticket Earnings.   

What can my Casino Tickets get me?

You will be able to turn in your Casino Chips toward tickets that you can drop into the basket you are interested in trying to win. We will draw the winning raffle tickets at 10:45 PM. The baskets typically feature tickets to professional sporting events, rounds of golf at local clubs, vacation homes, fitness memberships, kids classes & parties, etc.  The live auction features the popular Principal & Vice Principal for a Day, as well as other great stuff!

How can you participate? Attend and donate!
