In addition to La Guli Bakery in Astoria, Betty Bakery in Brooklyn is also participating in the Q300 PTA's Thanksgiving fundraising.

Every pie purchased using the following link will generate a $6 donation to the Q300 PTA:

Q300 4th Grade & 8th Grade School Bake Sale

Q300PTACommunicationComm2019Fall2019BakeSalesFlyer Our 4th graders and 8th graders will be running a bake sale to raise money for their year end trip (4th grade) and graduation expenses (8th grade). Please stop by and pick up some treats!

The fourth grade & eighth grade families are organizing Bake Sale on Tuesday, November 12th, during the Parent-Teacher Conferences. The purpose of this Bake Sale is to raise funds that will help us with our Graduation Ceremony as well as to enable our students to experience the end-of‐the‐year trip. We also plan to print out a memory book. Please stop by to encourage us. This is a pay-what-you-can sale.

Holiday Gift Card Sale 2019

Q300HolidayGiftCardProgram2019FlyerLet your holiday shopping work for the Q300 PTA.

Buy gift cards to over 70 major retailers and the Q300 PTA gets a percentage of the face value of each card. Download the order form here.

Act now! Orders are due Monday, November 25, 2019.

How does it work?
Buy a gift card -- choose from 70+ businesses on this form. After you receive your gift card the Q300 PTA will receive a donation from the card distribution company. The amount the PTA receives is a percentage of the face value of the gift card. You only pay the face value—just like buying a card at a store.

The retailers marked with "$$$" provide the largest rebate to the PTA. For example, a $100 Lands’ End gift card earns $16 for the Q300 PTA. Gap/Old Navy/Banana Republic is another great one at $14 for every $100 gift card you order! Sell gift cards to friends and coworkers!
Whether it’s for your own family or a gift for someone else, let your shopping help the Q300 PTA. Work in a big office? Sell cards to your coworkers and bundle them together onto your form like a scout selling cookies. Note: If you do that, we’ll send all the gift cards in your group to you and you will take responsibility for the distribution of those gift cards to the people who bought them through you.
