The Ark Gala 2014
CMS 5K Benefiting The Ark
Bealls offering discounts for donating to The Ark by March 27
The public is invited to take advantage of a win-win opportunity for a limited time at Bealls stores in Aransas Pass, Beeville, Corpus Christi, Portland, Port Lavaca, Rockport and Victoria.
When people make a purchase at a Bealls store in one of those cities by March 27, 2014, the PIN pad will ask if they’d like to donate $1, $5 or $10 to The Ark. If a donation is made, customers will receive a Community Counts savings pass for their generosity.
The savings pass will be valid for 30 percent off on regular price, sale and clearance purchases during Bealls’ spring sale March 19-27. For the first time ever, it will also be good for 10 percent off purchases of all so-called “Yes! items” (already at everyday low prices), as well as most cosmetics and fragrances.
“Our mission is to give back to the communities we serve!” says the store’s printed material of its “30 Days of Giving” campaign. “In that spirit, 100 percent of your donation will benefit a local organization, selected by your store team members.”

Dear CATCH ME IF YOU CAN CMS 5K RUN/WALK Supporter,
The Calallen Middle School NJHS/STUDENT COUNCIL students are proud to announce the first annual CMS 5K RUN/WALK on Saturday, April 13, 2013. The purpose of the run is to promote the CATCH program. CATCH is a coordinated school health program which builds an alliance of parents, teachers, child nutrition personnel, school staff, and community partners to teach children and their families how to be healthy for a lifetime. All proceeds from the race will go to The ARK Assessment Center and Emergency Shelter for Youth, located in Calallen.
Our minimum sponsorship is $200. The benefits of being a sponsor are: your logo on the back of the shirt, your company's name advertised on the radio, on several running websites, social media, and a digital banner that will be displayed at the finish line. Also, you have the opportunity to advertise by putting your company's name on products in the runner's goodie bag. Sponsors are encouraged to come set up a tent on the Calallen Middle School football field from the hours of 7:00 am-9:00 am and hand out replenishing snacks and drinks for our runners/walkers. The sponsor money will be used to pay for race expenses and any money left over will be given to The Ark.
The SPONSOR DEADLINE is APRIL 1ST. Make checks payable to
Calallen Middle School and email your company logo to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support, NJHS/STUDENT COUNCIL SPONSORS
