Bethesda high school gearing up for carnival fundraiser

February 4, 2014 by  

Parents and children from the Bethesda community are encouraged to show their support for a good cause by attending a fun-filled fundraising event later this month.

In under two weeks’ time, Walter Johnson High School will be holding its Cluster Carnival for the second straight year. Flyer printing has almost certainly been on the increase as the students in charge of the festivities work to maximize attendance numbers.

Proceeds from the event will go toward Pennies for Patients, which is associated with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The carnival will be open to families who are currently affiliated with the high school, as well as to those with younger children who will attend Walter Johnson in the future.

All of the entertainment will take place in the school’s cafeteria. Members of Walter Johnson’s senior class and leadership class have made arrangements to rent moon bounces, a mechanical bull, and an inflatable obstacle course for the afternoon. Attendees will also enjoy food, music, face paintings, raffle prizes, and games.

The Cluster Carnival will take place on Saturday, February 15. It will run from 1:00 pm until 5:00 pm. Admission will cost $6 per person, although the school is offering discount rates for those who purchase seven tickets or more. All young children will need to arrive with an adult.

Walter Johnson High School is located at 6400 Rock Spring Drive.
