Chipotle Fundraiser

Chipotle is hosting a Fundraiser for Dwyer Band. They will donate 50% of sales to Dwyer Band for anyone who presents the attached flyer or tell them at the counter they are with Dwyer Band. This was a very successful fundraiser the last time we did it. So please tell as many people as possible: friends, family, coworkers, and strangers on the street, etc.  Chipotle Address: 4655 PGA Blvd, Bldg F, Palm Beach Gardens.

Our Annual Italian Dinner and Silent Auction will be held on Friday, April 7th in the school’s cafeteria from 6pm – 8pm.

This event is a fundraiser for both the band and your child’s Fair Share Account.  All dinner ticket sales go to the Band’s General Fund.  Silent Auction item sales go to each student’s fair share.

What can you do for this fundraising event?  Start now getting items for the Silent Auction. Before you know it, the event will be here so it is important to start now especially since other schools in the area host events like this. We want to be first out the door securing items for the silent auction. Great ideas are gift certificates and cards from local restaurants, movie theaters, golf foursomes, spas, nail and hair salons, etc.  We will also take gift baskets or other items you may get. A donation form will need to be completed by the donors.  Please be sure to take this form with you when soliciting businesses.

Spagetti Dinner-Auction-Paperwork-2017

Dinner tickets will go on sale soon – sell tickets to friends and family members, have your student(s) sell them to their friends, club members, neighbors. The more tickets we sell the more money we will raise for our band programs.  In addition, a large audience listening to the students play is great and a bigger opportunity for the auction items to sell!

For this event to be successful, we need everyone to get at least one auction item.  Items can be brought in during band periods and left with Mr. Lamp or in the parent office.

We will have some fundraisers sometime in January and February to help with your cost. Remember that the Poinsettia Fundraiser will also go towards your trip.

We will need 4 chaperones for this trip. Please let me know if you are interested. The cost for the chaperones is already included in our school price.

Poinsettia Fundraiser will begin this Thursday, October 27th and will end November 10th.

Your child will come home with a packet on Thursday or Friday this week. The 8″ Poinsettia will sell for $20 and the 10″ will sell for $25. These poinsettias in years past have been big and beautiful. They all will come with a decorative sleeve. This always is a successful fundraiser for the Holidays. So we encourage you to take the brochure to work, neighbors, friends and family. The fundraiser proceeds will go towards the General Band Fund.

Cheesecakes will be delivered on Thursday, November 3rd.

Students will be required to pick up their orders that day in the band room. We do not have any storage so they must go home that day and be refrigerated as soon as possible. I will stay as long as I need to as to ensure that all orders are picked up. This was a successful fundraiser. Thank you to all that participated.
