"Da' Plungers of Ray-Pec" are raising funds for Special Olympics
Starting at noon on Saturday, Jan. 26, some brave Ray-Pec students and staff members will take the plunge into Longview Lake to raise money for Special Olympics! 

Ray-Pec has been one of the top fundraisers for Missouri Special Olympics over the past several years.

The forecast is calling for air temperatures in the 30s, but you don't have to plunge the frigid waters to support the effort. You can donate to the Ray-Pec team or an individual team member who is willing to get wet for a great cause.

(As of mid-day Thursday, Ray-Pec was the top fundraising team.)
You are invited to attend the annual Gala
Proceeds benefit the Ray-Pec Public School Foundation
Join the Ray-Pec Public School Foundation for an enjoyable evening out with dinner at Centerview, live and silent auctions, and a few surprises -- all for a worthy cause...Ray-Pec's students and staff.

To donate an item for the silent or live auction or to sponsor this event, contact Jodie Huston, Foundation Executive Director, at  jodie.huston@raypec.org or 816-892-1368.
