5. Fundraiser

-Fancloth! fundraiser starts on October 26 for two weeks.  This fundraiser will be used to help pay for scholarships for the padre trip and maybe offset the price of the trip for all of the students if enough funds are raised.  Do we set a minimum amount for each child to sell? How will the funds be allocated for the kids in need of scholarship?
