PREMIUM NUT FUNDRAISER STARTS THIS FRIDAY
We're selling premium quality nuts from J&N Products perfect for gift giving or baking. In the past, we've had students raise upwards of $400 from this fundraiser! Each bag of nuts you sell will earn you $5.00 towards your account. This can help with donations or use it to start fundraising for winter drumline or winter guard. We accept payments in cash or checks made payable to "Gahr Band Boosters.” All orders must be turned into the drop box by Wednesday, November 8th and will be delivered on Wednesday, November 15th. If you have any questions regarding this fundraiser, please contact Leah Walker- firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
COLOR GUARD FUNDRAISER
The $10 Cookie Dough fundraiser will start October 27th and end November 10th. We are asking that each color guard student sell a minimum of 10 tubs. The more we sell the more profit the girls will receive.
