The Municipality of Bethel Park, schools in Bethel Park School District, and Emerald Owl Productions, Inc. are working together in an effort to bring a professional "drive in laser show" to Bethel Park in 2021. (Specific Date TBD)
FOUR WAYS FOR SCHOOLS TO MAKE MONEY!!!! (see more info below)
1) Sponsorship Percentage
2) Ticket Sales
3) Sell Items To Public at Laser Show
4) EOP Credit for Future Experience at YOUR school!
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: The Municipality of Bethel Park is asking all participating schools to provide 4-5 volunteers for the event. Help is needed with traffic control, guiding people where to park, where to exit, distributing goodie bags to participants, and selling day of event on site tickets.Please e-mail Cathy Muscato at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sponsorship is necessary to pay for the cost of the event. With numerous events being canceled this year, many businesses have not spent their budgeted sponsorships. Bethel Park will allow school PTAs to keep a commission percentage, up to 25% of any event sponsorships they ascertain. As a school gets more sponsorship for the event, that school's percentage increases. See the percentage chart below.

2) TICKET SALES
The Municipality of Bethel Park plans to charge $15 per car. Discounted tickets will be available at all participating schools. If the cost of the event is paid entirely with sponsorship, participating schools will have the opportunity to keep 100% of all their ticket sales. If sponsorship falls a bit short, schools will still be able to keep a percentage of all of their sold tickets. In this scenario, the percentage will be based on how much is still needed to recover the costs of the event.
3) SELL ITEMS AT EVENT
Items for sale will be available in the queue parking lot at the laser show. As people are waiting for their turn to watch the show, they may purchase concessions, such as popcorn and hot chocolate. Glow in the dark light up items will also be available. The first four schools to earn $2,000 in sponsorship will be given the opportunity to sell items at the laser show. The first school to reach $2,000 gets first choice of what they wish to sell.
4) EOP CREDIT FOR FUTURE EXPERIENCE AT YOUR SCHOOL
Emerald Owl Productions offers several family friendly experiences that are fun for all ages. EOP can tailor events to fit the needs of an elementary, middle, or high school. Use your EOP Experience as a reward for your entire school OR as a major fundraiser. See all current COVID-19 compliant experiences HERE
Slime Machine & Foam Party: $5,000 in sponsorship Who will be getting slimed at your school? Every school has some teachers they would love to see get slimed. Now is your chance. We will include Slime Time & a foam party for your students. Schools getting $5,000 in sponsorships will get one half day with the slime machine and the foam machine.
Laser Light Glow Party: $7,000 in sponsorship
EOP's most popular service is the glow party. We will make it COVID COMPLIANT based on restrictions at the time of your event. People of all ages and backgrounds will enjoy this memorable night at your school. (George Washington Elementary PTA may serve as a reference before hiring us.) EOP will turn your venue into a memorable array of lights and laser beams. You can give it away as a school celebration or turn it into a major fundraiser at your school by having kids raise $20-$25 to attend! (We ensure they will get that much value!)
