‘Carnival-like’ Family Fun Night, from FIS PTO, is April 5

Farragut Intermediate School Parent-Teacher Organization invites everyone to the school’s Family Fun Night from 5 to 8 p.m., Friday, April 5, in the school, 208 West End Ave.

“Join us for a carnival-like event, a night of family fun with inflatables, games, arts and crafts, food, a bake sale and a silent auction,” said Amie Abram, FFN event chair. “We kind of have it all.

“The silent auction begins online on Thursday, March 28, and continues to an in-person silent auction at the event,” she added.

FFN is held in the school’s cafeteria, common area and gymnasium.

“We also use part of Farragut Middle School, their gym, where our inflatables will be set up,” Abram said. “It’s a big event for the Town and for the school. This is our version of (Farragut Primary School’s) Fall Festival, so to speak. It’s a really big event, anywhere from 500 to 700 people — over 300 families — usually at this event.

“This is an annual event that the school hosts every spring,” she added. “We invite families and the community members to come and enjoy an carnival-like event.

“We seek many volunteers from the public … churches; organizations like United Healthcare. … ”

The event “offers the community a chance to come together, have some fun and support our school,” Abram said.

Family Fun Night also raises funds for the PTO. However, she said FFN really is a “fun night out.” as it seeks community sponsors.

Advance ticket sales begin Tuesday, March 26. Tickets and wristbands also are available at the door.
