Dine and Donate
- It’s a simple set-up that businesses have come to love, because McNear is well known for coming out in droves. On a given day, patrons shop or eat at the designated business, and for each flier they receive, they donate a percentage of the sales back to the school.
- Every fall each students are given 20 minutes on the track to run as many laps as they can, earning money as they go (they solicit donations in advance—both flat fee and per lap). This is McNear’s second largest fundraiser and a super fun event for the kids.
- In the spring, parents come together at some location to bid in both silent and live auctions, enter into raffles, enjoy food and entertainment, and especially mingle with other adults. This is by far McNear’s largest fundraiser and a GREAT community event.
