Fenton Project Graduation Selling Messages in a Bottle

Group trying to raise $40,000 for all-night graduation party.

Have a message you would like to send a Fenton senior?

Fenton's Project Graduation organizers have a creative way for you do to so: A message in a bottle.

The message in a plastic bottle stands about seven inches and includes sand, seashells and a special note from you to your senior. The cost per message in bottle is $10 and all funds raised will go to all-night party at Andrew G. Schmidt Middle School after graduation on June 2. The bottles will be handed out to seniors after the graduation party. Full payment and order forms are due no later than April 15. Order forms should include the full name of the senior, your name and the message. (Form is attached to the article.)

Mail payment and order form to:
Colleen Wisniewski
1234 Baker Rd.
Fenton, MI 48430.

Upon arriving for the party, parent volunteers will securely hold the graduates’ keys. To ensure their safety once inside the facility, the students are “locked in” until time to leave on Monday morning. The event will include a variety of activities and games throughout the night, such as casino games, DJ, laser tag, arcade and video games, movies and an endless supply of food and drinks.

Organizers are calling the event PG-13. (Short for Project Graduation 2013)

"This year we are looking to raise $40,000 for the event, each graduate will receive a goody bag of gifts for showing up. We will also have great prizes to give away to help start our graduates off on there future endeavours," said one of the organizers Travis Stack.

Each student will receive one raffle ticket for a chance to win prizes such as dorm size TVs (32"), tablets, mini fridges, laptops, futons and many other prizes depending on donations received.

Organizers are also looking for donations that can be sent to:

FHS Project Graduation 2013
PO Box 1042
Fenton, MI 48430
Tax Exempt ID # 38-6021099.
