AVPA Pledge Drive – Fun Raiser Fun-a-thon!

AVPA Pledge Drive – Fun Raiser Fun-a-thon!

AVPA’s Annual “Fun” Raiser!

The Fun-a-thon at Mulligan’s  – Sunday, January 21, 11am to 2pm!

What was an annual tradition of Bowl-a-thon’s, and a Dance-a-thon last year, has evolved into this year’s Fun-a-thon! AVPA students will spend 3 hours at Mulligan Family Fun Center in Torrance playing Lazer Tag, Miniature Golf, Go-Karts, Rock Wall, Arcade games, and more! Admission and unlimited play from 11am to 2pm on January 21 is free for AVPA students! The only requirement is to participate in our annual Pledge Drive!

The PLEDGE DRIVE is an opportunity for our AVPA students and parents/guardians to reach out to extended family members, neighbors, family friends, and co-workers to make a tax-deductible donation to the AVPA program! Our goal is a minimum of $50 raised for each and every student in AVPA. Prizes include most amount in donations, as well as most number of pledges.

There will be many prizes given out, both for the Pledge Drive itself and for competitions at Mulligan’s on January 21! More information will be posted soon!

Food and beverage is available for purchase.

PLEDGES, PLEDGE FORMS, and PERMSSION SLIPS are due by January 12 to the Creative Director of your department.

Permission Slips will be given out by the Creative Directors soon!

If you’d like to make a direct donation via credit card, visit our donation page where you’ll find a link to PayPal: You can include a note to let us know which student should get credit for your donation (and you could email us at to let us know the donation has been made).
