Throughout the year, the Booster Club sponsors various events that help raise money for the band. Below is a listing of our events and ways you can participate.
At the conclusion of band camp each year, the band and Angels gather in the school cafeteria for a lock in where they rock the night away. Each student is asked to approach friends, family members and neighbors to sponsor them for this event. Parents can help by signing up to be chaperones or to help in other ways the night of the event. DONATE NOW!
Mulch Sale (Early Spring)
The booster club hosts a mulch sale each Spring. This is one of the largest fundraisers for the booster organization. This event involves the majority of the students and parents in the band program. The band delivers several thousand bags of mulch to its customers in just one day.
This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for all parents and students. By volunteering, parents have the opportunity to meet other parents within the SFA program.
Cookie Sales (about every other Wednesday throughout the school year)
The booster club purchases cases of frozen cookie dough pieces, which are baked by parent volunteers and sold the students during their lunch break. Parents bake the cookies in small ovens provided by Otis Spunkmeyer.
Parents who participate in this fundraiser meet next to the cafeteria between 9 and 9:30 AM on scheduled cookie sale days. Baking and sales end at approximately 12:30 PM when the last lunch is over. Volunteers can work as their schedule permits.
This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for parents that stay home, work from home or work part-time. By volunteering, parents have the opportunity to meet other parents within the SFA program.
Restaurant “Spirit Nights”
Throughout the school year, we will have local restaurant fundraiser nights. On these evenings, the Booster Club gets a percentage of all the sales at that restaurant. The restaurant customer must tell the cashier/server that they are supporting the SFA Band. This is an easy way for us to earn money for the band program. Check your email and the website for notices about restaurant fundraisers.
