Three schools reap Colonie Center 'bucks'

ALBANY, N.Y. (June 20, 2017) -- Three City School District of Albany schools were among the top 10 winners in the area in the annual Colonie Center School Bucks fundraising challenge, and each earned a cash prize.

 

Albany School of Humanities (ASH) came in third place and received a check for $2,000 (in the photo, ASH Principal Fred Engelhardt accepts the school’s reward). Eagle Point Elementary School came in seventh for a $1,000 prize and North Albany Academy ninth for a $500 prize.

 

Colonie Center shopping mall gives area schools the opportunity to vie for a total of $20,000 in cash prizes by giving each school a “buck point” for every dollar spent in one of the mall’s stores or restaurants or its movie theater. Families need to show the receipts to guest services to get credit for the purchase.

 

Schools also can earn bonus points by performing music at the mall, having photos taken with Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny or promoting the School Bucks program in communications from their schools.

 

Thirty-one schools in the Capital District participated in this year’s program. Click the highlighted text to learn more about Colonie Center School Bucks.
