    Games! Rides! Food! Prizes! Cakewalk! Silent Auction! Raffles! 

    Ithan’s annual “Spring Thing” carnival is a wonderful day for the Ithan community! The event is a fun-filled day for the kids, and raises funds for our school. 

    Spring Thing is made possible through generous donations of time, talent, and resources from many Ithan parents and supporters. Volunteers are needed to lead key aspects of the event, and many volunteers are needed on the day of the event for food sales, running games, and selling tickets.

    To get involved, please contact Marisa Benjamin ( or Erin Croke ( 


    Silent Auction and Raffle Items Needed! The Spring Thing committee is collecting items for the silent auction and raffles, and we need your help! For the silent auction, we are especially looking for sports/event tickets, holiday house rentals, and experiences (e.g., round of golf, family photo session). Please contact Libby Beri if you have any items to donate or suggest. 

    Do you have extra points from airlines, credit cards, hotels, or Disney Vacation Club? You can donate them to Ithan PTO to be combined with other contributions for raffle prizes and auction items! The value of the points donated are tax deductible! Please contact Madeleine Campbell for more information about donating points!

    We also appreciate monetary donations to help us include great items for our raffle! Donate online HERE by clicking the yellow Donate button and indicating that your donation is for Spring Thing 2020.

    HELP WANTEDWe are looking for chairs for the Spring Thing Staffing and Prize Table Committees. Help is available from past coordinators, and these roles can be done on your own time! Please contact Erin Croke to volunteer.
