Help Powell Elementary this Saturday at their Spring Carnival: dunk tank, fun for kids, raffles & more; Annie's Ace donating too

This Saturday, Powell Elementary at 1350 Upshur is holding their Spring Community Carnival, a fundraiser and fun event for kids and adults. It's at the Roosevelt High School field across from Annie's Ace Hardware from 10am-3pm.

And along with that event, Annie's is holding a fundraiser for the event -- they'll round up any purchase you make on Saturday:
Annie’s Ace Hardware in Petworth supports a number of schools in the area but we have a special partnership with Powell Elementary which is right down the block from us.  Our employees happily volunteer to be judges at their spelling bees, participate in Dr. Seuss reading days, and host tours of our store.
 This Saturday, May 20, the Powell Carnival will be held at Roosevelt High School’s athletic field.  As part of this event, Annie’s Ace Hardware will do a “round-up” fundraiser.  What this means is that all customers will be asked if they would like to round-up their purchase to support the Powell Padres, the parent organization for Powell Elementary.  If your total comes to $13.49, you will have the opportunity to “round-up” to $14.00 and 51 cents will be donated to Powell. We appreciate your support of this event!

Here's more about the carnival itself:
On May 20th, Powell Elementary School we will be holding their 3rd annual Spring Community Carnival at Roosevelt High School football field. This event is open to the public and all proceeds go towards funding field trips, classroom technology, classroom supplies and other school-support activities.
