2017 Raffle
Band Members and Parents,

It’s RAFFLE time! This raffle has been a HUGE success. We have raised over $20,000 for our band program in the past five years! We are hoping this year will be just as successful with your hard work and dedication to the band program. We need to maintain and upgrade our instruments, buy new music, and continue to improve our program in many ways. We are thankful for all the support the school administration and the school board has given us in helping to improve our band program; with their help we have made great strides over the last several years. We are also thankful for the support of the students and their families. Without you, we could not be as successful in making band a great part of their high school experience.

This is our eigth year for the raffle, and our goal is to beat last year’s numbers. We have some great prizes: The Grand Prize is $500. The 2nd prize is $100. The 3rd prize is $100. The 4th prize is $50. The 5th prize is $50.

Tickets were sent home with the students, and you need to start selling them TODAY… The final drawing will be held on December 17th at the year-end concert. The tickets are $5.00 each or a book of 5 for $20.00. By buying a book for $20, the buyer gets a “FREE” ticket. We are requiring that each student sell 1 book of tickets; we would like for you to sell all five booklets. Please, let us know if you need more. We will make sure you get them to sell. If we all do that, we will have a very successful fund raiser, and we will raise over $10,000 for the band program. You will be credited $1.00 into your band account for each ticket you sell.

The raffle is licensed by the county (Number R-153-17). Because of this, the raffle tickets must be controlled and are individually numbered. We have printed a limited number which are available for sale. The tickets will be assigned to each student by number. The ticket stubs and money must be turned in together. ALL UNSOLD TICKETS MUST BE TURNED IN.

As an incentive, the top selling student will get $25.00 added to their Charms account… Remember, when you sell a ticket make sure the buyer fills out the information on the ticket stub, and please make sure we can read it. Also, please put your name on the back of the ticket to make sure you get credit for the sale ($1.00 for each ticket you sell).

Tickets and money for the drawing must be turned in at the band room no later than 5:00 pm on December 15, 2015.

Let’s make this year’s raffle a HUGE SUCCESS…thank you in advance for your help and hard work. If you have any questions, or need more tickets, please give me a call. For control purposes, please turn in tickets ONLY to myself or into the blue box in the band room.

Thank you for all your help,
