Car show help
The Raymond Schools’ Car Show is an annual event that raises money for the PTO Scholarship, which is given to a Raymond resident graduating from a local high school. This year’s show will be Sunday, Aug. 14. The show was created in 2009 by a family that wanted to give back to their town. Serena Knight and her family have produced the car show for the last six years with little help from anyone. They donate the money back to the PTO so that it can give a graduating senior a $1,000 scholarship. This year the PTO is helping by getting the word out about this event. They are hoping to gain some sponsors
to defer the cost of the event and are looking for money sponsorships, money donations or in-kind donations.
