Tricky Tray Update: September 19th 2013

Bakers are needed!  If you are willing to donate some time by baking for the Tricky Tray, this is a great way to earn some service hours!  The form can be located here

We're also looking for a few good men!  The night of the Tricky Tray, we need volunteers to serve as "runners" (delivering baskets to winners) and to sell raffle and 50/50 tickets.  Contact Julie Sciaino at to sign up.

Of course, we still need prize donations.  The Tricky Tray committee reports that they are way behind in donations when compared to past years.  This event needs prize donations to be successful!  You can drop off your donation at school or if you don't have time to shop, cash donations are always appreciated.



Donation Details:

*Each school family donation should be no less than $50.

*Feel free to buy a $50 gift card or why not re-gift an unused/upopened gift.

*We would appreciate any empty baskets from past winnings be brought to the school office.

Let us start out by saying that our annual Tricky Tray was a huge success!  We would like to personally thank you for supporting last year's Tricky Tray.  Through combined efforts, dedication and commitment of supporters like yourselves, we are happy to report that the event raised $21,000 last year!  Your generosity was overwhelming and the funds were applied to upgrading our school.  Due to the enormous support last year, the HSA board decided to use a small portion of the funds raised towards Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

Thank you again.

Your 2012 Tricky Tray Commitee-Donna DiPiano, Deb Craffen and Julie Sciaino
