Abby Pursiful For Homecoming Queen

Abby Pursiful For Homecoming Queen

Hi, my name is Abby Pursiful. I am a senior at Union County High School and I am running for homecoming queen. The homecoming fundraiser runs approximately six weeks. This allows each club the opportunity to raise funds. I am representing the Skills USA Cosmetology division, of which I am the president. Ninety percent of the proceeds raised will be donated to Skills USA Cosmetology and ten percent of the proceeds will be going to the athletics department. Fundraisers include selling baked goods and other food items at the home football games; the next home football game is September 15. I am also selling vinyl decals. The vinyl is outdoor grade vinyl and can be placed on car windows and other personal items such as, drink cups, laptops, cell phones, etc. Designs include an orange Tennessee with a heart or power T at the Union County area of the state, the Union County Patriot emblem, custom monograms, as well as, a few others expressing support for our UCHS football team. My next fundraising event is September 9th at 8am and is a cumulative skills USA cosmetology department yard sale. We will be located at Lowe's Collision on Maynardville Highway across from the Union County High School. Also on September 9, beginning at 9am, we will be selling baked goods and vinyl decals at Food City in Maynardville. I will also accept tax deductible donations, of any amount, for the cosmetology department until September 20th. Funds being raised will assist freshman, sophomore, juniors, and seniors in equipment for cosmetology labs needed to practice their skills throughout the year. This equipment includes mannequins, esthetic supplies, hair coloring and permanent supplies, kit supplies, etc.
The Union County High School, athletics department, cosmetology department and I would appreciate any support that you may have to offer.
If you have any questions please contact Betsy at 865-237-2277.
Thank You!
