2016-2017 FUNDRAISING


Below is a list of the fundraising activities offered during the 2016-17 school year. Each year the Booster Organization chooses a mix of general and individual (Fair Share) fundraisers in order to reach our financial goals. (i.e. pay student Fair Share; cover instrument, uniform and equipment purchases and repairs; help with travel expenses; etc.) We hope you will consider participating in some way so that our students can enjoy all the benefits of a strong Band program!

Fundraising can be challenging but it can also be fun with the right attitude and enthusiastic Volunteers. Please consider becoming more involved by volunteering as a chairperson for one of the fundraisers. If you chair a fundraising committee, it does not mean that you will be working on that fundraiser alone! What it DOES mean is that you will be able to work with other band parents who will assist you, and the more volunteers we have, the more successful our band program will be! If you have any questions about volunteer opportunities, please contact Linda Meling, 2nd Vice President (Fundraising).
