FLINT TWP. — The Dye Elementary School Parents Group is sponsoring a “fun raising” event from 4-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 19 at Leo’s Coney Island, 4151 Miller Road.
Leo’s is among several area businesses with a community giveback program that generously donates a percentage of profits to help students.
Those attending the Dye fundraiser will see 15 percent of their total tab donated back to the school. Diners who also have a Leo’s Coney Island Fundraiser Card will earn an extra 10 percent. The cards can be obtained in the school office.
On a roll, the Dye Parents Club also will benefit from an upcoming fundraiser at Five Below, 4085 Miller Road – a variety discounter that caters to the pre-teen market. For an entire week, Nov. 20-26, 10 percent of all purchases made by Dye supporters will be donated back to the school. A flyer posted on the school Facebook page must be presented to the store cashier to receive the discount. Copies of the flyer are online at www.facebook.com/CarmanAinsworthCS/photos/ a.560660110619820.126503.487 021057983726/887442854608209 /?type=1&theater
Five Below has an organized community giveback program through which it supports a variety of charities dedicated to the wellbeing of children. For details visit its website at www. fivebelow.com/fundraisers.
Dye isn’t the only Carman-Ainsworth school to getting business support.
The C-A high school robotics team, Big Mo, just wrapped up a weeklong fundraiser at Tropical Smoothie Cafe, 2103 S. Linden Rd. Supporters who presented a flyer or mentioned Big MO helped earn back 15 percent of sales from the event.
Big Mo also was the beneficiary of an event at Leo’s Coney Island in mid-October. Leo’s donated back 10 percent of all sales during the two-hour event.
BD’s Mongolian Grill, 4205 Miller Rd., has also sponsored fundraisers for Big Mo.
These events serve the dual purpose of being able to enjoy dining out with family and friends while supporting a favorite cause.
