Little Caesar’s Pizza Kit Sale - NEW DATE - March 24, 2015
Pizza kits are BACK! $5 from each item sold will go to the student seller’s Charms account. Detail information and the sales flyer will be sent home in February. Mark your calendars and start getting the word out!
Dine-In Fundraiser - Culver’s
We are still waiting for confirmation on a date, but the GBHS Instrumental Dept. will get 10% of all sales between 5pm and 7pm at Culver’s on Holly Road. We need students to volunteer a couple of hours at Culver’s. Once the date is confirmed, volunteer information will be sent out and volunteer needs posted in Charms to be filled.
If this is successful, we hope to try a different participating restaurant each month during the school year.
Party Lite Candle Fundraiser - New!
This is a new fundraiser we are trying because it’s a great product, and we will earn 50% of all sales. We are designating this fundraiser for the band trailer that is needed. The trailer will be used for transporting instruments and equipment for performances when the semi is too much, or we need the extra space. Party Lite candles are beautiful candles that would make great gifts for Mother’s Day! More information will be available at the Pre-Festival Concert.
Mom2Mom Sale - May 2
The sale is in both gyms at East High School. Moms and vendors set up tables with goods to sell, and a lot of moms show up to shop! We will sell baked goods as well. Many, many volunteers are needed for this event. Please contact Leslie Damm at email@example.com for more information or to let her know you can help. Volunteer slots and baked goods donations are now listed on Charms.
Jazz Night - May 9
Jazz Night is a fantastic fundraiser in which our jazz bands (2) play for a couple of hours to a very appreciative audience. We serve dessert, coffee, tea, and lemonade. Local businesses can reserve and sponsor tables. Last year was very successful, and we hope to surpass it this year. Volunteers are needed not only for the night of the event, but parents who are interested in learning the process to take over after next year. Please contact the Stacey Tyckoski at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. You can sign up to volunteer or donate desserts in Charms.
ANNOUNCING… Our Red Envelope Fundraiser is now ONLINE!
Our Red Envelope amounts have been added to the Charms Store! This is the first time trying this and the actual board and the Charms Store item will be updated as online donations are claimed.
Please help us spread the word to family, friends, co-workers, alumni and businesses how easy it is to now support the Grand Blanc Instrumental Music Department! Online order donations can be put into the Scrip box for those of us band families that are able to participate in this fundraiser. For those who can donate that do not live close or can’t get a donation order payment to a band student, the PO Box address is listed with the Item Description.
Remember… if we can get a donation for every envelope, 1 - 144, we will make $10,440! These donations will go into our general budget while we work towards items such as new Marching and Day Band uniforms and an enclosed trailer.
Have a credit in your Charms account? Consider donating to the Red Envelope fundraiser via the Charms Store! Thank you.
