THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Folks at Jerger Elementary hope to earn money by having a little fun at their annual Winter Fest!

"This is a fun day," said great grandmother, Dotty Thompson.

School administrators team up with the Parent Teacher Organization every year at the Winter Fest to raise money for the school. This year they hope to raise enough money for new security and safety doors.

"We have to keep our children safe and its just a security measures thankfully we've never had any problems but I'd rather be proactive," said Principal Rayburn.

They hope to earn money with $5 raffle tickets, food, and games. Parents and kids stood in long lines for bounce houses, the cake walk, ring toss, a photo booth, and face paintings.

Bria, Jerger Elementary student said,"I like getting paint on my face."

"Because they're really good and sometimes they paint it all on your lips and still sticks," said Gina, elementary school student.

Administrators say the new technology equipment will cost around 20,000 dollars. They hope to raise enough money by the end of the day.
