Bull Run Plaza Promotion
The Bull Run Plaza promotion is a great opportunity for a local school to gain a donation from the local businesses in the community. We would like to encourage students, parents, and staff to participate in this holiday promotion. The merchants of Bull Run Plaza in Manassas are planning a holiday promotion this year that will involve a drawing for a $1000 shopping spree and $1000 donation to a local school. The entry form includes space for the participants to fill in the name of his or her favorite school, so that the Bull Run Plaza donation can go to the winner’s favorite school. To be eligible for the shopping spree, participants need to fill out the entry form and turn it into Battlefield High School before December 5, 2014. The amount of people who participate in filling out the entry forms will increase the chances that our school will gain a donation. Please complete the Bull Run Plaza Donation Entry Form and return it to the front office of Battlefield High school by December 5, 2014. Thank you for your support of Battlefield High School.
