We're just a few weeks away from the scariest night of the year. This means that it’s time to start thinking about costumes, candy and most importantly PTA Halloween Discos. The children have missed out on having their Halloween Disco last year due to the pandemic. Let's bring back this tradition while still staying Covid-Safe!
One quick and easy way to do this is to eliminate cash handling by selling tickets online. Let’s face it there's no better way for the kids to celebrate than with all their schoolmates at this year’s disco. So get started on creating an ultimate experience for the kids like never before - all while remaining cautious and not having to worry about money exchanging hands.
All tickets can be sold online with PlanSocial, this can include entry tickets as well other items such as drinks and snacks that can be available during your eventful night of celebrating.
