4th Annual Cocktails for Crayons

  • Aug 7, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for the 4th Annual Cocktails for Crayons. We’re headed back to The Sapphire Lounge in the Radisson Newport Beach for another FANTASTIC happy hour benefitting a local elementary school.

With the extreme budget cuts & layoffs affecting our school systems, many schools & teachers are not able to provide the needed supplies to start off the new school year. We are asking you to help out by bringing in school supplies that will benefit a local OC school. All you do is head over to your local Target, Staples, Office Max or Wal-Mart and pick up some school supplies and bring them to the happy hour. 

This event is cross posted with other meetup groups and Facebook.  We expect a big crowd! Come and join us!

Below are items that are at the top of most teachers (I would know, I am one!) wish lists:

++BACK TO SCHOOL SALES ARE IN FULL SWING! I find that TARGET as the best sales!++

Paper, pencils, crayons (box of 16), highlighters, Kleenex, Expo dry erase markers (& erasers), pens, paper clips (large & small), staples, glue sticks (large), copy paper, construction paper, supply boxes (for students), hand sanitizer, stickers, colored pencils

Don’t have time to shop? Gift certificates are always welcome & appreciated.

See you at the Sapphire Lounge!

    You'll need a great children's book that meets science standards for grade one, too! That would be mine. :-)
