On October 20th. the Poughkeepsie Public School Teachers had our first social event at Mahoney's Irish Pub. Spirits were high as we celebrated this party with a purpose; Hurricane Relief for Puerto Rico. Themed baskets of goodies were assembled by the different schools and raffled, 50/50 tickets were sold, and a donation at the door was collected. All were in the giving spirit including Mahoney's, which provided a delicious food spread for all at no cost!
By the end of the event, nearly $900 was collected to send to Puerto Rico, and a great time was had for all. PPSTA members will keep our thoughts and prayers with our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico.
