MAC is holding a Joe Corbi's pizza fundraiser to support the Frederick Rescue Mission. Order forms were distributed during practice. All orders will be due to the Fundraiser folder on or before Saturday, October 18th. Corbi's is offering prizes for anyone selling at least 11 products so feel free to sell as many or as little as you like. If you are not interested in selling door-to-door but you would like to support the cause, you may order pizza kits to be donated to the mission. More information is posted on the bulletin board, available on the cover letter with the order form and should have been emailed to each family. Questions should be directed to Cheryl Knapp at 240-394-0226 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
