Just Having Fun

We put the "Fun" back in Fundraiser, and in doing so are giving more students a chance at the "Ile Omode experience".

Annual Fundraisers

Ile Omode hosts two major fundraisers each year; the Bowlathon in December and Casino Night in May. The fundraisers support our general fund as well as our scholarship program which allows the school to provide partial tutition scholarships for deserving students.

Casino Table

Enjoying "Fun" Gaming
The adults-only affair is on
everyone's calendar.

Casino Night (May)

Casino Night began in 2012, but just after one year the event was moved to Geoffrey's Inner Circle, and it has been an absolute hit. Bringing together everyone's favorite after hours activities - dancing, eating, an occasional spirit (a nice way of saying there is a bar), and "fun" gambling (in other words you get to leave with your shirt on), the event quickly became the school's most successful fundraiser.

Professional gaming tables are brought in, and games include Black Jack, Roulette, and Craps - and for those with absolutely no interest in gambling there is also a full bingo game. Ticket purchases include a starter set of chips, and guests can purchase additional chips throughout the event. At the event's conclusion, guests can exchange their chips for prizes, which have included flat screen televisions and vacation offerings.

Party

Dancing the Night Away
The dancing starts early, but don't
worry, "what happens at Casino Night,
stays at Casino Night".

Sponsorship opportunities are available for businesses, both small and large. There are a number of sponsorship packages and these can be customized to meet a sponsors specific interests and goals. Sponsorship packages include sponsoring a gaming table, one of the event's prizes, and sponsors are featured prominently at the event and in literature and marketing material leading up to the event.

Tickets generally go on sale in February prior to the event, and will be available for purchase online, so get ready to "dance the night away" in an event that supports our school, but is also a lot of fun.

Bowlathon Banner
Bowlathon (December)

The Bowlathon is a bowling party disguised as a fundraiser. On the first Saturday in December our community has a bowling party, and teens and adults bowl for fun and trophies.

In the months leading up to the Bowlathon, Ile Omode students seek event sponsors. The sponsors pledge an amount per pin (such as $.10 per pin) or a flat amount, and each student bowls two games.

There is a healthy bowling competiton in three categories: preteen, teens, and adults, and trophies are awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each category. However in this competition everyone is a winner, just so long as bowlers can avoid the impromptu dancing that breaks out when the bowling allery DJ gets really heated.

Companies or individuals may sponsor a lane or pizza (we have to keep the bowlers fed).
