Mattress Fundraiser Information

We will have a mattress sale on Sunday, May 15th, 10AM-5PM in the aux gym.  You don’t have to do anything, except tell everyone you know about it!  Anyone that purchases a mattress that days and mentions your name…you receive all the profit in your individual band account, which can be used to pay for your Florida trip!  More information to follow.


We will have a brief meeting about this fundraiser on Monday, April 11th, after the symphonic/concert bands play their contest music.  It will be a very brief meeting…and if we have at least 100 people in this meeting, they will donate $500 to our booster organization!
