Wicomico Destination Imagination Teams Get Creative to Raise Money for May Trip to Global Finals: Concerts, Restaurant Nights, Raffles and More
Competing at Global Finals is a tremendous honor and achievement. It also costs quite a bit of money, so teams will be busy fundraising for the next few weeks.
Staff of Wicomico County Public Schools supported Global Finals teams by participating in a countywide casual day for DI on April 22.
Donations are welcome at any time to the respective school, with “DI Team” (for Bennett Middle, can specify one team, or both) in the memo line or on the envelope, or to all teams through Wicomico DI, using the addresses below. You'll also find information each team has provided on its fundraisers.
