Concessions Fundraiser at Winter Dance 12/15

Friday, 12/15/2017, 7:45-9:45 pm

The Treble Choir and the Tenor/Bass Choir students have decided to do concessions tables at the Winter Dance as a fundraiser for their choirs to help cover performance-related expenses.

The boys will be selling bottled water and Gatorades at their table.  Ms. Blackwood will purchase those supplies ahead of time.

The girls want to do a bake sale.  If everyone pitches in, we can have a very successful fundraiser!  Items can include cookies, brownies, cupcakes, home-made candies, and other home-made treats.  All students should try to bring at least one dozen or more of their chosen goody to make.  All baked goods should be brought to the choir room during the day on Friday, 12/15.

The dance itself is from 8-11pm.  Students who are working the first shift at our concessions table should arrive no later than 7:45 pm.  There is a sign-up page in the choir room for 15 minute shifts between 7:45-9:45. (The 7:45-8:00 spot is for set-up; and the 9:30-9:45 spot is for clean-up.)  We need only four students to work each shift.

If students plan to both work the table for a shift AND participate in the dance, they must buy a ticket to the dance.  If students are only working one or two shifts at the table and not participating in any way at the dance, they do not have to buy a ticket.  Students who do not purchase a ticket must leave after working their shift(s).

**PLEASE NOTE:  Mr. Walters has advised that if they do not sell enough tickets by next Wednesday (12/13), the dance will be canceled.  Please check the choir website on Wednesday to confirm whether or not the dance and our concessions tables are happening.**

Contact Ms. Blackwood if you have any questions or if you would like to help out at the concessions tables next Friday.  Thank you!
