Bring in this flyer, show it on your smartphone or tell the cashier you’re supporting the cause to make sure that 33% of the proceeds will be donated to Arlington Heights Council Of PTA Scholarship Fund. AHCPTA Scholarships are gifted annually to D25 students based on available funds. This year ten scholarships are being awarded on May 2nd to deserving college-bound high school seniors who have attended D25 schools.
