Falcon Family Fun(draiser) Night

Event Information


What is the difference between raffle baskets and the online auction?
The raffle baskets are made up on donations from classroom families and are displayed in the hallways of the school for the week leading up to the raffle. Students can place tickets in the buckets to win the baskets. The auction is online through the Auctria platform. It is a showcase of local businesses that have donated their goods and services to help support our school community. Many of the donors are FCES parents.


What is there to do at Falcon Family Fun(draiser) Night besides put raffle tickets in buckets for baskets?
We will be having a flash Scholastic Bookfair the night of the auction! Grab some books for summer reading and maybe some fun notebooks to record all your adventures and travels. 

Additionally, families will be picnicking and playing on the playground that evening -- they may even be able to cheer on some friends at the Little League games that night!

So much going on, come hang with some friends and meet some new members of our community.


Will there be any food options?
There will be food trucks in the bus drop-off area from 5:30-8pm for students and families. They will be open to the community starting at 6:30pm.

There are 3 dinner trucks this year:

Fall City's own Two Bumz Shave Ice will be offering dessert in the covered area by the playground as well!
