Ford Drive 4UR School fundraiser

As everyone is aware, the 17th of May is the Chicken Barbecue and Band performances at the high school.  The bands start their performances at two o’clock and perform for nearly four hours.

Prior to the barbecue, there will be a Ford Drive 4UR School event in the front parking lot between the Junior High School and the High School.  This fundraiser allows all our supporters to drive a brand new Ford vehicle and raise $20 for each test drive taken.  We have the opportunity to raise $6,000 for the student’s portion of the upcoming Disney trip.

We will start at 10 am and go until we get 300 test drives.  We’ll have a preplanned route and plenty of Ford family vehicles for you to experience.  Please invite your friends and family to join us.  Drivers have to be 18 years of age and have a valid drivers license.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me at any time.

Florida Trip Financial Assistance

Anthony Wayne Band Families,

As with past large group trips, the Boosters will be offering limited financial assistance for the trip to Florida. This assistance is intended for those individuals/families that will be financially burdened by the cost of the trip.

If you feel the need to request assistance, please fill out the Financial Assistance form (PDF) entirely and return to Mr. Young by Wednesday, March 12th. The Band Booster executive committee will make the final decision based on the information received.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time.

AWBB Car raffle needs your help

As many of you know, the Band Boosters are raffling a car in support of the large group trip in 2014.

We ask all band families to print the attached flyer (PDF) and hang it in a place that people will see it and possibly purchase tickets.

While some students are still too young to be on that trip, the AW Band family has always supported the needs of the students. I ask you for that continued support.

We will be selling raffle tickets at many events around the area and are always looking for people to help. This raffle and all of the other booster activities require the time and energy of volunteers to make these events successful. If you’re unable to help with the raffle, there are many other areas that we could use your help with.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me at raffle@awbb.org.

Help raise $1,000 for our bands!

I am writing to ask for your help in raising $1,000 for the Anthony Wayne Marching Generals.  This can be done by joining the Ecology Team at this year’s Cherry Festival the weekend of June 14-16th.

If you’re asking “what’s Ecology?”, the short answer is trash.

Students, parents, and even siblings are qualified to help.  We have three days to cover, so we’ll need a good group of helpers.  If you’re interested in helping out, please let me know.

BIG TRIP 2014 Volunteers

Parents of band students going on BIG TRIP 2014:

The AW Marching band students will have their next Big Trip (once every 4 years) in most likely late Fall of 2014 (about 18 months from now).

Because of this expensive event, the Band Boosters are looking at having a large fundraising event to help fund a portion of the students’ trip cost. But we cannot do this alone and are looking for some volunteers to help with this fundraising event.

Again, this is to help reduce YOUR cost for the trip in 2014.

If you would like to help out your child’s booster and band organization by assisting with this event or for more information, please contact me.
