Q. What is Springetti?

Elementary's annual spring fundraiser hosted at the school. This will be
our 22nd annual event and the theme is Springetti 2018: Adventure
of the funds raised go directly to supporting our school through technology
updates, instructional materials, testing and tutoring, student field trips,
and playground updates just to name a few.
Q: Where and when is Springetti?
A: Springetti will be on Friday, March 23, 2018 from
5:00-8:30 pm at Galatas Elementary School. There is a preview night on
Thursday, March 22 from 5:00-7:00 pm.
Q: Who sponsors Springetti?
A: We are so grateful to our Galatas families and staff as well
as our community for their support.
Q: What is there to do at Springetti?
A: Lots! From a Spaghetti Dinner to Live and Silent
Auctions, Raffles, Games, Bingo, and plenty more awesome adventures!
Q: How do I get admission?
A: Admission goes on sale on February
13th and is $15 per person. Children 3 and under are free. The cost includes an admission, dinner, and games. Everyone is invited and
must have an admission wristband to enter. Don't wait, Springetti does
sell out!! Purchase admission here.
Q: Why should I purchase extra ticket tokens?
A: Purchase ticket tokens to use for bingo, the general
store, some of the entertainment, special treats, and to increase your odds on the adult and
kid raffle prizes in the main hallways. Be sure to get enough for the
family and put your name and contact info on each ticket. We usually have
around 200 raffle items between kid and adult raffles to win. Ticket
tokens are $0.50 in advance online and $1.00 at the event.
Q: What is Express Pay and why use it?
A: As a convenience, you may pre-register your credit card used
when purchasing your admission and ticket tokens to charge your purchases on
the night of Springetti. Using express pay is completely safe and simply
allows you to skip an extra step when claiming your live or silent auction
prizes. Please note, should your card expire or you wish to change the
card used, you may stop by the Technology Lab to update your information during
Springetti before events close.
Q: What do I wear to Springetti?
A: Springetti is a casual, family-friendly
event. You may choose to wear something that goes with this year's
theme, Springetti 2018: Adventure
Awaits if you want. Please, no

Q: What do I do when I get to Springetti?

entertainment in the bus loop. The live auction is in the cafeteria.
Q: How do I claim prizes I’ve won?
A: After 8 pm, you can claim your raffle prizes at the
library doors, kids raffles on one side, adult raffles on the other.
There are two ways to claim a live or silent auction prize. If you
pre-authorized your credit card (Express Pay) when purchasing tickets, you can
go straight to the activity room. Your paid receipt will be there with
your item. If you did not pre-authorize your credit card, go to the tech
lab to pay, and then go to the activity room with your receipt.
*We highly encourage you to pre-register your credit card which can
help speed up the process when picking items up at the close of Springetti.

to be a part of it?
A: Yes! We host Preview Night on Thursday, March 22
from 5-7 pm. It is free to come check out the adult and kid raffles and
drop your ticket tokens in at that time. Winners will be drawn the night
of Springetti, but you do not need to be present to win. Ticket tokens can be
purchased online at the discount price, as they are $1.00 on Preview Night.

Q: What else is there to Springetti?

large event. We begin months in advance, but help is needed in the weeks
and days leading up to it, as well as the night of Springetti. Volunteers
are always needed! If you’d like more information on how to help, contact
Chris Outten or Kimberly White at email@example.com.
