Following Thorsby’s annual Christmas parade on Saturday, Dec. 4, the Parent Initiative Team is hosting a fundraiser at Thorsby High School to raise money for new auditorium curtains.

A Christmas supper will be held in Thorsby’s lunchroom from 5–7:30 p.m.

Meal tickets are $5 and are being presold for adults and children.

“This is our first time doing this, but we hope to make it an annual event,” said Pam Price. “We hope it goes well because we have some good prizes.”

A child’s meal ticket includes one hotdog, chips, cookie and drink as well as a Christmas craft for the child to take home that night. The children’s meal and craft activity will take place in the Hunt Memorial Gym.

An adult ticket includes one bowl of soup, cornbread and dessert. Those who dine in at the school will be provided a drink.

In addition to the meal, a silent auction will be hosted by radio personality “Dollar Bill” Lawson from 6–8 p.m. in the Thorsby lunchroom.
Bingo cards will be sold at $1 per game, and door prizes will be given away throughout the night.
“The town hall is donating a big gift, and we have lots of gift cards for food places and gas cards,” said Price. “Each teacher at the school is coming up with a basket to give away.
“I’ve heard that teachers are putting together movie, music and candle baskets; I heard one teacher is even putting dollar bills on a wreath to give away.”
