Hello Countryside Families!!


Act Now -- Comedy Night -- Order Your Tickets!:

On Friday, January 25, we will be holding our 2nd Annual Comedy Night and Basket Raffle at Indian Spring Country Club in Marlton. We still need to sell quite a few tickets to meet our minimum, so tell all your friends and family! Tickets are $50 per person and include dinner, wine, domestic beer, soft drinks and of course lots of laughs from our two comedians! Raffle tickets will be available to purchase onsite, cash or check preferred. Win one (or more!) of over 90 great prizes like a hoverboard, an XBox One, a Shark vacuum, Jersey Boys tickets, Flyers tickets, a Ninja Coffee Bar, 76ers tickets, passes to Delaware River Tubing, gift cards to local businesses, and much, much more! Because we must give a headcount to the venue on Wednesday, January 16, we must have all orders in hand by Tuesday, January 15. Backpack your order in on Monday, January 14, or contact Liz Paradise by the 15th at paradisefamilynj@gmail.com or by text at 732-309-3900.

Countryside Skating Night is on Sunday, 1/20/19 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm at Cherry Hill Skating. This event is always a lot of fun, and school is closed on Monday, so please come join us!
