Horace Mann sets fish fry, basket sale

Woodward, Okla. — Horace Mann students are joining together to raise money for new playground equipment, according to physical education teacher Selena Marlatt.

In addition to her teaching duties, Marlatt is the organizer of the fundraiser, which this year is a combination basket raffle, auction and fish fry.

Marlatt said this year's fish fry will be held Feb. 20 beginning at 4:30 p.m. and serving until 7:30 p.m.

But way before the fish fry, students in each grade gathered together items for their own basket of goodies for the raffle.

Horace Mann counselor Jill Rogers said she is especially proud of the students because each one of them came together to create their own fundraiser, working together to get items on their own.

And these are no piddly , little baskets. These are giant, must haves depending on what you decide you want, Marlatt said.

Indeed, just standing in front of the "Crazy Cash"basket trying to guess how much is in that thing could get your courage up to take a risk and buy a $1 ticket even if you aren't the type to enter these kinds of raffles.

But maybe you are the late night candy eater? The "gi-normous" basket of every kind of fun candy might be something you want to buy a chance on, Marlatt said.

The baskets are on display at Horace Mann and available for viewing during school hours, she said.

"The tickets are only a dollar a piece so everyone, even the kids, can afford to purchase a chance toward any one of them," Marlatt said.

The evening of the fish fry, winning tickets for the basket will be drawn at around 7 p.m., Marlatt said.

According to Marlatt, there will also be silent auction items donated by many local businesses available as well at the event.
