PAC Apple Fundraiser
The Cunningham PAC has partnered with Sun-Oka farms, in the Okanagan, again this year to bring ambrosia and honeycrisp apples fresh from the orchard.
These apples are delicious! Just ask anyone who ordered them last year...it as a simple online form using this link: https://fundraising.sunokafruit.com/s/gtcunninghampac
Apples are sold at competitive prices and each box purchased generates funds for the school PAC to use on providing enhanced experiences for our kids - our goal this year is to provide safety programming to the children such as home alone, babysitting, swim to survive (actual courses have not been selected yet).
The sale will be open from September 19th to October 8th with delivery anticipated the week of October 17th (exact date will be confirmed after harvest)
If you have any questions please feel free to contact the PAC at email@example.com or visit our website at: https://cunninghampac.wixsite.com/mysite
