Castro and Mistral's Walkathon and Silent Auction is the PTA's annual fundraiser usually held in the afternoon in the fall. It is a big community event where we build and celebrate our community, have fun, and raise money for the Castro and Mistral PTAs.
Kids support their school by asking family, friends, and neighbors to sponsor them for the number of laps they walk at the Walkathon and then use their energy to walk as many laps as they can. Parents and family sponsor their child (and sometimes their child’s friends), donate to the silent auction, and volunteer before, during and after to put on the event. Teachers, the principal and staff encourage everyone to do their best and offer hosted parties at the silent auction. Local businesses and the community offer support by donating wonderful gifts for the Silent Auction.
