Reminder: Entertainment Book Sale ends Tuesday


The Entertainment Book sale ends next Tuesday September 25th. All parents or students should report to the High School Cafeteria on Tues, Sept 25th, to turn in your money that you collected and to pick up the books you sold which you will then deliver to your customers.

If for some reason you did not sell any books you MUST still return your sample book to the cafeteria that night. There will be band booster volunteers at the high school cafeteria from 4:30 -7:30 pm that evening to collect money and to give you your books.


You should enter the high school cafeteria behind the school in the Senior Commons section which is across from the baseball fields. This is the same location you have dropped off desserts in the past for our annual Chicken BBQ.

Another reminder! All checks should be made payable to AWBB.

We also want to remind you that we have prizes for top sellers and if you sold (3) or more books you will automatically be entered into a cash drawing for $50!!! Top prize this year is a $150 gift card to the place of your choice!

I want to thank all of you for helping support this fundraiser!

Entertainment Book Sale – Update

The Entertainment Book Fundraiser started about a week ago.  Your child should have come home with an Entertainment Book and a letter from the Band Boosters that gives the details of the sale. The book is valued at $30 so each student is responsible for the book.    We have approximately (2) weeks left of our sale so we  want to remind everyone to try to sell at least one book if not more!

If your child sells (3) or more books they will be entered in a $50 cash drawing…two drawings for each school so six in all!  We also have some great prizes to give to the top sellers with a $150 top prize!

The Entertainment Book Sale is an integral part of our band fundraising.  The funds raised help with the  purchase instruments, prizes, lunches, and other activities for your student.  On behalf of the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters we would like to thank you for your  support in helping raise money by selling these books.

Thank you!

Chair of Entertainment Book Sale

p.s.  We will need volunteers for the Entertainment Sale Turn In Night on  Tuesday Sept 25th.  It is from 4:00 — 8:00 pm in the high school senior commons section of the cafeteria.  Please contact Ellen VerStraete  to let us know if you can volunteer your time.

Entertainment Discount Books, 2012

For the 16th consecutive year; 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 Wednesday, August 29th through Friday Aug 31st.

The sale will run for approximately 3 weeks with an order turn in date of Tuesday September 25, 2012.

During the sale, each student will receive one Entertainment Book valued at $30. You are responsible for purchasing, selling, or returning this book in good condition. The book you will be given will be your sample book that each student will use to show to prospective customers during the three week fundraising period.

Each student will have a “Turn-In Envelope” which will be used to take orders and collect money. All money should be collected when orders are taken! If you need additional envelopes please see your band instructor as they will have extra ones available.

All envelopes with book orders and money are to be turned in on Tuesday September 25th in the High School Cafeteria from 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm.

This is the only day you can turn in your money and receive books so put Tuesday September 25th on your calendar! At that time you will receive the Entertainment books you’ve taken orders and collected money for.

Once you receive your books you can then deliver them to your customers. You must also turn in your sample book if you have not sold it on this date as it must be returned to the Entertainment Company. If your sample book is returned damaged you will be responsible for the cost of the book which is $30, so please take extreme care with 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 will be 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 prizes totaling over $1,100! There will also be (6) $50 cash drawings; two for each school where students selling (3) or more books will be automatically entered to win. In addition to the drawings, at the end of the sale, there will be prizes awarded to the top sellers with the overall top seller receiving a $150 gift card!

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 Marching Generals and look forward to a successful year!

Good Luck Selling!
