Music Department Fall Fundraiser Starts Today!
Sale begins: Wednesday, Sept. 6
Sheets and money are due: Monday, September 18
Delivery: Oct. 8-12
The Fairbanks Music Department is the largest department in the school, serving over 220 students in eight grades. It takes money to support our musical efforts, and student-raised money is a substantial part of that. Our goal this year is to raise $6000 from this sale. This is the ONLY fundraiser for the music department as a whole this entire school year. This money is used for items like music, supplies, repairs, transportation, instruments, rewards, uniforms/apparel, and many other day-to-day expenses. It is asked that all members of the music department help in this important fundraising event. Hansen has an online store this year so you and your family can reach even more customers who want to support music in our schools! (register.hansenfoods.com) See directions for this method below.
Students are asked to sell at least 10 items from the sales brochure, and are rewarded with prizes and cash on many different levels, including a day off pizza and movie party for sections of each group who sell the most per person!
If your family chooses not to sell, we respect your decision, but would kindly ask for at least a $25 tax-deductible donation in lieu of selling. Donations, however, do not count towards prizes. Donations DO count toward the section battles as 1 item for every $5 of donations. (e.g. $25 donation = 5 items)
I would like to state again, that these funds benefit ALL students in the music department. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Keller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
