Bands for the Band
Raising money is a big part of high school activities and the Band Boosters tackle the challenge in various ways. Some of the parents shudder at the idea of baking brownies and others wince at the idea of asking businesses for donations. But the bake sale table fills up for every function and fund raising pizza cards materialize. Lots of people contribute and the band plays on.
I made a banner to use at concerts and other events where we will have things for sale to benefit the band. The kids (and their parents) are making paracord bracelets, which are selling well. They are easy to make and have a pretty good profit margin. We will need to sell quite a few, though, to buy a new baritone sax.
