Selling Entertainment Books

There are two ways to sell Entertainment Books to your friends, family and neighbors (“supporters”) for the Anthony Wayne Bands fundraiser.

In-person: If your supporter lives in the Toledo area and can pay in cash or with a check (made out to AWBB), then you should sell to them in person.

  • Set up a time to meet them and let them check out a copy of the Toledo area Entertainment book.
  • If they want to buy it, have them give you cash or a check ($25), and give them the book on the spot.
  • Turn in your money to the band directors and get another book to sell.

On-line: If your supporter wants to pay by credit card or lives somewhere else in the US or Canada (and thus wants an Entertainment Book for their city), then you should sell to them on line.

  • To sell on-line, you first need to create a personal Entertainment Book Sale page. We have detailed instructions with screen shots and tips for going through each step. You will need to create an account on entertainment.com and provide some information about the student doing the selling. You can optionally include a picture of the student and enter email addresses for your supporters.
  • After you have created your personal sale page, you can email your special web address to supporters, post the link to Facebook, and share in other ways to let your supporters know about it.
  • When your supporters visit the page, they can select the city they want a book for (including the Toledo area). They will pay with a credit card. Their book will be shipped to them. You will get credit for the sale.
  • Again, to sell on-line, you must first create a personal Entertainment Book Sale page.

You are not required to sell in-person or on-line. You must return the book you received if you do not sell it in person.

The deadline for all sales, in-person and on-line, is Monday, September 14th.

Happy selling!

Entertainment Book Sale 2015

For the 19th consecutive year, the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters will be sponsoring its fall fundraiser: the Entertainment Book Sale. The fundraiser includes all three schools, from beginning-year 5th grade students through 12th grade band students. This year’s Entertainment campaign will kick off on Monday, August 24 and run through Monday, September 14. The sale will run for approximately 3 weeks with an order turn-in date of Monday, September 14, 2015.

During the sale kick off, each student received one Entertainment Book valued at $25. You are responsible for purchasing, selling, or returning this book in good condition. If you do not plan to sell the book, please return it to Mr. Young or Mr. Krichbaum as soon as possible. When you sell your book, you may get another from the band directors at any time. All money should be collected when orders are taken! If your sample book is returned damaged you will be responsible for the cost of the book ($25), so please take extreme care of your book.

As you are taking orders for your book, please let your customer know that checks and cash are both accepted. Checks should be made payable to AWBB.

The Entertainment Discount Book is available for almost any city. Out-of-Town books are priced differently for each city so check the insert for the cost. There is a separate order form in your Entertainment Kit for out-of-town orders. You can also purchase books on line at Entertainment’s website. Please see the attached insert in your kit for details. The Anthony Wayne group I.D. for purchasing on line is #369322.

As an incentive for selling, the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters and the Entertainment Company will be giving away multiple prizes. The top seller for all schools will receive four passes to Sky Zone.

The Entertainment Book has many great coupons for local stores and restaurants and has become one of the Anthony Wayne Band’s most successful fundraisers. It represents a significant amount of the band booster’s budget and provides additional funds used for trips, awards, the purchase of instruments, band uniforms, and other items.

On behalf of the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters, we would like to thank you for supporting this important fundraiser. We appreciate your dedication and support of the Anthony Wayne Bands and look forward to a successful year!
