U-NITE was a great success this year! Blanton had pre-sales just shy of $9,000. We are still finalizing expenses and will know how much of the “day of” sales we will receive in the next week or so. We’ve heard so many positive comments on the event and I hope everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you for supporting Blanton PTA!
We’d like to give a huge shout out to all of our Sponsors!
