We have two ongoing fund raisers you may already know about. I’d like to encourage you to participate to help defray some of our expenses and keep the account afloat as we make our $9,000. uniform payment to central office soon. Contributions from these fund raisers will help keep our band fees low. Other opportunities will be offered throughout the year that will directly benefit the students who choose to participate, with profits going directly to individual student accounts.
If you were at Thursday’s booster meeting, you already know the first fundraiser is Schwan’s Cares. Until September 27th, 20% of all products you order and 40% of e-certificate sales will be given back to us. After the 27th, 5% will be given back until August 14, 2015! Please see the attached flyer for more information. Feel free to join the group your student belongs to or set up a campaign of your own.
If you’d like a catalog from Schwan’s, please let me know and I’ll be happy to get one to you.
The important info is http://www.Schwans-Cares.com and the # 13511!
Soon there will be a button for Schwan’s on the Band website to make it even easier.
The next opportunity has to do with our recent Stevie B’s spirit day/night. Did you go, back in July? Stevie B’s donated $290.56 to us from that spirit day with them!
If you didn’t get to go, we’ll have another night set up so that you’ll be able to if you’d like. Between now and then, you might want to purchase one of their fund raiser cards. For $10.00, you will get what they consider a $70.00 value. Some who have already purchased cards have told me they made the money back on their first visit to Stevie B’s! The card is good through May 31, 2015 and gives you the following:
2 offers for 20 free game room tokens
Free Birthday Party Buffet – Birthday child eats free with any party package of 8 or more.
Free Medium Specialty Pizza with Purchase of a large pizza to go
2 offers for a free adult buffet with purchase of a drink 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Free large 1 topping pizza w/purchase of equal or greater value pizza
2 offers for Tokens – Buy $5.00 – Get $5.00 free
2 offers for a free kids’ buffet with purchase of a drink
Free Buffet Monday through Thursday
If you’d like to buy to have one (or more) of these cards, please send your money to the band room ($10.00 per card you wish to order). If you write a check, please make it out to BJHS Band and write your student’s name and the number of cards you’d like in the memo section of the check. If you send cash, please put it in an envelope marked STEVIE B CARDS and include (on the envelope or a note) your student’s name and the number of cards you are paying for. I will also have cards available this Thursday afternoon if you’d like to buy a card when picking your student up from practice.
Please keep reading e-mails and checking the calendar for more spirit nights and opportunities to support our group. If you have ideas for us, or would like to help, please don’t hesitate to be in touch with me.
