Dragon Week Coin Wars

We use Dragon Week as our major Fall Fundraiser so that you don’t have to sell anything! No wrapping paper or candy etc. 100 percent of the money raised goes towards the PTA’s fundraising goals.

Donations to the Dufief PTA are Tax Deductible, but we can only provide receipts for checks and PayPal donations as we cannot verify the origin of coins and cash.

DRAGON WEEK: October 8-12, 2019

  • Monday – pennies
  • Tuesday – nickles
  • Wednesday – dimes
  • Thursday – quarters
  • Friday – Dollar Day (cash and checks)
