About Cowboy Breakfast

The Cowboy Breakfast and Carnival is FORES PTO's traditional fundraiser.  The proceeds from this year's Cowboy Breakfast will go to funding teacher grants, technology, and other purchases for the school.  FORES earns money via the purchase of carnival tickets and wristbands, Drop-in-the-Bucket (a.k.a. our prize-raffle tickets), and, of course, our Silent Auction.  Come and enjoy brunch from one of the amazing food trucks that will be present and stay for the carnival games, activities, and silent auction.


Ways You Can Help


Become a Cowboy Breakfast Basket Room Parent: Each class donates a basket to be sold at our silent auction. Our Basket Room Parents solicit donations from the class, coordinate the entire basket, and get it ready to be brought to school for display. This is especially fun for a creative, Pinterest-y type of parent. But any parent can do this! PTO has some wonderful basket ideas and can help you if you get stumped creatively.

Donate to your class basket: Even if you are not the coordinating basket parent, you can still help by donating to your class basket. Your class basket parent may ask for a donation of cash, a gift card, or other item to fit the basket theme. Each and every donation, no matter how small, helps our school.


Donate Another Item or Service to the Silent Auction: Do you work at/own a company that you would like to introduce FORES’ families to? Or perhaps you have a service to which you can donate your time? Are you a sporting season ticket holder? We have had some wonderful Silent Auction donations from the community in the past which include (but are not limited to): weekend hotel getaways, airline tickets, beach condos, turkey hunts, Spurs games, interior design  consultations, plumbing services, electrical services, auto detailing, birthday parties…. the list goes on and on. We are so appreciative of our parents who are so generous with their time and resources. All of your donations go straight back to your kids!


Volunteer your time to help: We need help setting up for the carnival, help running games, activities, assistance monitoring the silent auction, and clean up help. Please keep a look-out for our Sign-Up Genius next month or contact Jessica Parnell at if there’s something specific you would like to do.


Bring your family to FORES on February 23: Eat brunch, purchase carnival & raffle tickets and bid on Silent Auction items. An easy and fun way to contribute!
