Postponement of the FCEF annual Spring Gala will leave the Falls Church Education Foundation short on funds for critical teacher grants, programs and operations at the start of the new school year. To make up these funds and ensure FCEF is able to provide needed dollars to teachers in this unprecedented time, we are launching an Orange A-Peel. Help us deliver on our mission with a #FCEFVirtualGala!
Donation of any amount will enter you into a raffle for two free tickets (value $300) to the FCEF gala when it does happen in the Fall.
Donation of $50 or more get two Orange Crush/non-alcoholic Orange Creamsicle Shirley Temple drinks from Clare and Don’s delivered to their door (social distancing rules will apply).
Donation of $250 or more earns the Orange Crush delivery PLUS a special Orange A-Peel card that gets the donor an Orange Crush on-the-house every time they visit Clare and Don’s for the remainder of the year (up to 6 crushes).
Donation of $500 or more earns all of the above PLUS a car slot in the parade celebration (described below) when we hit our $50,000 goal.
When we reach. . .
$10,000 . . . Several FCCPS teachers will post videos of themselves performing the Orange Justice Fortnite Dance. (You might not know, but your kids know what this is!)
$25,000 . . . the principals will be videotaped having their school mascot dump an orange cooler full of ice water on their heads.
$50,000 . . . A cross-section of FCCPS teachers and staff, Superintendent Dr. Noonan, and the mascots, will lead a car parade through the city with cars decorated with orange streamers and balloons. (Parade will be scheduled as social distancing rules allow.)
To help spread the word, we are encouraging all of our FCEF supporters to post pictures of themselves at their high school prom, at a past gala (fondly referred to as the adult prom), or in an outfit they might wear to a future soiree – and make an appeal to their friends and followers to join them in supporting FCEF and Falls Church City Public Schools. Post a gala/prom photo of you to your FB, Twitter, Instagram with #FCEFVirtualGala and tag the FCEFFoundation on Twitter, fcefoundation on IG, or Falls Church Education Foundation on FB.
