Dining for Dollars (DFD) 
Each month, Holmes PTA will host an event at a local restaurant. The participating restaurant will donate a % of the profit earned by the Holmes families that attend, back to our school.  Families are encouraged to attend, invite family/friends, and to spread the word on social media or word of mouth.  Keep your eye out for our monthly events and see you there!
