Hello Band Parents,
Another opportunity for your student has come our way. Every year in April and November we participate in the Belk Charity sale. The sale is November 4th this year from 6A-10A. I will have the coupon in hand on Saturday ,September 9th.
This sale is a private, four hour sale dedicated to support local non profit organizations. Those that buy a coupon will receive 20%-70% off of Belk purchases. You can use the $5 coupon on top of the great sales per item. We have an opportunity to raise money for the charity(band). Last April we made $1745 in coupons sold and on the day of the sale we made $91 .
This is an individual fundraiser. We sell the tickets for $5, then $5 goes to your student account and the person that bought the ticket gets $5 off their purchase on the day of the sale or the presale. It is definitely a win win situation.
There is also a way for the band general fund to make some money too. This will help in trying to repair or replace any instruments that are needed. We will need to have 4-5 students and 1 adult to work the day of the sale per hour. Students can earn service hours for working this sale. We have to have someone there during the sale to make more money.
Students that want to participate will receive 10 coupons to start with. Once the money is collected and turned in the envelope provided into the gray box in the band office, they can get more. For instance if your student sells the 10 coupons it is $50 in their student account. This is a lot of money and will be very helpful for Disney payments.
To get your tickets or if you have any questions please
feel free to call, text or email us.
