Sandoval PTO to Sponsor Block Party This WeekendThe Second Annual Bub and Boog's Block Party on Main Street in Sandoval will be held on Saturday, September 28th. This year the Block Party, with the exception of alcohol sales, will benefit keeping extra curricular activities and sports in place at the Sandoval schools due to $300,000 in state budget cuts to the district. It is being sponsored this by the Sandoval PTO.
The event kicks off with an early bird Dodgeball Tournament at the Sandoval Grade School gymnasium. Registration for the tournament is from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., with games beginning immediately after. Cost is $40 per 6 member team.
New this year to the Block Party is a children's area that will run from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. with inflatable jumpers, games, and a dunk tank. Bracelets for $10 each will give children access to jumpers and 20 chances at games! Snow cones, cotton candy and face painting will be available for $1 each.
The Block Party will also feature a silent auction, food stand, bags tournament ($20 per team), bingo (5 cards for $1), 25 cent cake walk, and a dunking booth. A Fish Dinner will start at 2 p.m. and run to 6 p.m. with fish, fries, baked beans, slaw and drink for $7. FREE Live music form The Logan Thompson Band, Twisted Road, and Bumpin Uglies begins at 2 p.m. and will go until midnight!
Bub and Boog's Block Party T-shirts are available for $12 and can be purchased at Sandoval Grade School. Raffle tickets for a $1,000 cash prize ($10 each or 3/$25), half a side of beef ($20 each or 6/$100), and a 2014 Colonial Golf Membership ($10 each or 3/$25) are also being sold at First National Bank of Sandoval, Angie's Hair Express, Colonial Golf Course, Studio 50, and Bub's Pub. The drawing will take place at the Block Party, but you do not have to be present to win.
The Sandoval PTO notes community members and teachers have stepped in to offer their time as volunteer coaches. The PTO has pledged to pay for referees, umpires, and to cover other expenses related to sports. This burden comes on top of many other responsibilities the PTO covers each year. Donations for the event are being sought. If you would like to donate 2 liter bottles of soda, buns, hot dogs, baked beans, tea, lemonade, ketchup, or money/items to use in baskets for the raffle and silent auction, please contact Missy Schlau at 618-247-3450.
