We hold several fundraisers throughout the year to benefit the band program. Some are done by the students and benefit them individually; some are sponsored by the booster organization and benefit the band as a whole. 

Student Fundraisers

Several student fundraisers occur during the school year. Parent volunteers help to coordinate the fundraisers and students sell the products. Funds must be deposited in the bookstore into the Band 101 account, in each student’s name. Monies can then be used for assessment fees, trips and other band activities. With the exception of chocolate sales, the student fundraisers vary from year to year. Some of the fundraisers we have had in the past are:
  • Fall and Spring World’s Finest Chocolate Candy Bars 
  • Coins for Concerts Coin Drive
  • Car Washes
Tidbit: Students earn a percentage of the money raised with these fundraisers for their Band 101 account. This is a great way to give the student a chance to help with the financial needs of participating in band.
  • In order for your student's proceeds to be properly applied to their Band 101 account, money from the sales must be turned into the school bookstore and the receipt that is issued must be turned in to Mr. Werner. If a receipt goes missing, parents or students can request a duplicate receipt from the bookstore. 

Booster Fundraisers

Several booster fundraisers occur during the school year. Parent volunteers help to coordinate the fundraisers and parents sell the products. Funds are deposited directly in the booster account and used to support the band through booster events and purchasing equipment or services for the band as directed by Mr. Werner. Fundraisers that we have held in the past include:
  • Booster t-Shirts/Show Shirts
  • 50/50 Raffle Ticket Sales
  • Concessions at concerts and ABODA Regional Auditions
  • Water Sales at Graduation

Painless Booster Fundraisers

This fundraising is painless as local grocery store chains do a wonderful job of donating money toward school programs and all we have to do is our regular shopping.

Booster T-Shirts

Marching Band parents traditionally show their support each year by purchasing and wearing shirts to support the Lionhearts Marching Band.
