Come join us for a yummy fundraiser at BJ’s Restaurant in San Mateo and make it a fun way to enjoy a meal with friends and raise money for our school at the same time.

The Brewer Island PTA is holding its restaurant night at BJ’s on Wednesday, May 25 from 11 am to 11 pm and 20% of food and soft beverage sales will be donated back to our school.

You must bring the BJ’s RESTAURANT FLYER with you to the restaurant.  Extras flyers will also be available at the office.
