Crocker Hosted Parties - Info and Ideas

Hosted “Parties” are social fundraising events hosted by a Crocker family or, most often than not, a group of families who share in the cost of putting together their event. Paid admission is open to the school community and all proceeds go towards our school. Oh, and they tend to be lots of fun! Read on for tons of “party” ideas— family friendly and adults ones as well.

We encourage you to think outside the box— experiences, workshops & excursions are all great “party” ideas. If it brings people together, builds community and raises funds for our school we want to hear about it!

Copy them freely, or use them as inspiration for your own social creation!
