Welcome to McDowell Early College, located in Marion, NC
Biggest Fundraiser of the Year: October 3
Every year, MEC students have an amazing opportunity to raise money to go on class trips. á On Friday, October 3, we will host our annual Variety Show at East McDowell Middle School beginning at 7 p.m. áPrior to the show, a spaghetti dinner will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m. á Tickets for both the dinner & the show are $8 for adults, and $6 for students. á 100% of ticket sales are transferred directly to student accounts. á

In addition, MEC also puts together amazing gift baskets valued at $200.00 which are raffled off the night of the Variety Show. á Tickets are sold for $1.00 a piece, and again, students receive 100% of the profits from these sales.á

The reason students receive 100% profit is because all of the items for the gift baskets and for the dinner are donated by MEC parents and local businesses. á All items for the gift baskets should be submitted to the school no later than Friday, September 5, in order to maximize the amount of time students have to sell tickets. á
Ticket Packets Now Available
Raffle basket ticket and Variety Show ticket packets are now available for students to pick up from Mrs. Laughridge. All money for both kinds of tickets should be turned in no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, October 3, to Ms. Haberneck in order for the money to go towards individual student accounts.á Tickets will be available at the door, but those proceeds will go to the Eagle fund, a scholarship fund for students in need. Remember, students earn 100% of the profit from the selling of these tickets, so its a wonderful way to pay for class trips and yearbooks!
