At Roxboro Community School’s (RCS) annual Holiday Extravaganza on Nov. 2, the PTSO set a new record and raised over $18,350.

Seventy vendors, including Bob, Erica, and Peanut Butter from G105’s,“Bob and the Showgram,” came out to sell products in the decorated hallways of RCS.

Managing Executive Director Natalie Brozy said, “This year’s Holiday Extravaganza proved to be an extraordinary community event, bringing together local businesses and Personians. We set a new record for the largest number of vendors, and patrons were treated to a special guest appearance by G105. I’m always amazed at the amount of work and preparation the PTSO puts into this event, and this year that hard work translated into a most successful event for our school.”

Barbeque chicken plates were for sale, and there was a silent auction filled with baskets donated by businesses and clubs at RCS. The silent auction raised $1,500 more than it did last year.

Some items up for sale during the silent auction were a weeklong spring break beach vacation; tickets to a Panther’s football game; tickets to a NCSU vs. Duke Basketball game; furniture items, including hand-painted table and chairs, recliners, and a grill; designer handbags; an original framed painting from Phillip Holeman; and numerous baskets donated by the middle school and clubs at RCS.

PTSO member Jodi DeVillier said, “The Holiday Extravaganza is always the PTSO’s biggest fundraiser of the year and this year was no exception. We were extremely pleased with the turnout for this year’s event. We are ever grateful for the support of the Person County businesses who made donations to our silent auction and raffle prizes; the vendors who traveled from throughout North Carolina and Virginia to kick off Person County’s holiday shopping season; the Hall family and Lisa Moore who cooked our barbecue; the parents, staff, and student volunteers who worked so hard to make the Extravaganza a success, and the entire community who came to shop, eat, and enjoy a Saturday visiting our school.”
