Texas Roadhouse Fundraiser - We have kicked off the Texas Roadhouse gift card fundraiser. This is an online only fundraiser in which you can purchase gift cards ranging from $5 to $100; as many as you want. Students will receive 20% profit towards band or indoor fees from total sales. Click or share the link below to start ordering. Once you add the cards to your cart, you will then designate what student will get credit for the profit. Simple and easy. Cards will be delivered to the school then distributed around December 13th. Just in time for Christmas :-) Wednesday is the last day to order.
Section Money Wars - The section money wars will take place up until Wednesday. Remember, the section that donates the most money in their box will get to pie one of the directors. The winner will be announced at the concert.
