Each year, the All School Council (ASC) hosts an annual Tricky Tray raffle event, with this year being the first where the event was hosted in school. The event was held on Thursday, December 15th in the North Cafeteria of Watchung Hills. The North Cafeteria was filled with baskets ranging from dog-themed ones to coffee-themed ones. The walls were decorated with snowflakes and various holiday ornaments.

From 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, attendees gathered to enjoy appetizers, refreshments, and participate in the raffle. Tickets to attend cost twenty-five dollars, and food, as well as a sheet of raffle tickets, was included. Tickets were easily bought in advance or could be purchased at the door. The Grade Level Councils (GLCs) helped contribute to the selling of the tickets, in addition to the creation for some of the baskets.

Students, parents, and teachers were all welcome to participate in the fundraiser, and all of the food and baskets were created by WHRHS students in either ASC or their respective grade GLC. The attendees of the event could dine with the assortment of food, as well as participate in the raffle for baskets. Students called the raffle numbers for each basket while making witty comments to keep the participants entertained.

The head advisor of ASC, Ms. Kelly, stated that a total of seventy-six people attended and that there were “99 baskets at the tricky tray along with 42 gift cards from local businesses.” The school fundraised $2345, which will be divided up among the ASC and each grade’s respective GLC.

Students in attendance claimed that the Tricky Tray was “a hit, and very festive for this time of year.”

Moreover, some students uttered that they preferred the Tricky Tray being held at the school rather than various restaurants, as it “helped make the fundraiser more school festive.”
