GIFT-WRAPPING FUNDRAISER: The Band Council has been in contact with Barnes and Nobles in Riverpark for gift wrapping. We have reserved several dates for ourselves, but would like to know if anyone in the band would be interested in working. The dates that are in question are November 28 and November 29, the Saturday and Sunday after Black Friday shopping. Any volunteers working these two dates would receive 15% of the total donations for their shift towards their BBB fundraising goals. Barnes and Nobles requires at least one person working to be a band parent. The maximum amount of volunteers to be working at Barnes and Nobles is 4
Shifts change quickly, as many organizations are interested in fundraising. If you are interested in working, let me know by tomorrow night (November 20th). Email me with what day you would prefer, and if you would be unavailable to work at any particular times.
Also contact me if you need any raffle tickets, we will have a week off soon and I will be unavailable for most of the break.
Thank you very much - Donovan Edwards (firstname.lastname@example.org)
RAFFLE FUNDRAISER: Thanksgiving break is a great time to sell $1 raffle tickets to family and friends! Pick up tickets this week to sell, and if you are not planning on selling turn them back in. Selling tickets will contribute to your individual fundraising goal. There will be a pizza party second semester for the section with the highest average tickets sold and all 100 and above ticket sellers. Prizes will be drawn the night of the winter concert, December 10th, make sure all tickets are turned in before then - Donovan Edwards (email@example.com)
MB & CG Posters will be handed out today (11/20/2015):
