Paint me a Picture - Show not Tell

In our writing we have been trying to show not tell the reader what is happening.

These are our first try at this. We were allowed to use only one sentence. Mrs Faithful gave us - The man went down the street. (Tell)
This is what we did to the sentence to show. Please leave a comment on the one that you think paints the best picture.

Super Hero Fundraising Day

The Student Council decided two weeks ago at a meeting to hold a Super Hero Day to fundraise for Caledonian Children. The Funds raised will go towards paying for school uniforms so the children can go to school. We raised $210 on our coin trail. Each uniform costs $20 so this will mean 10 children will get a uniform and then they can go to school.
The favourite Super Hero costume was the blue Smurf in room 7. Ioane and Olivia.
