Dear Students, Parents, Staff and Friends:
We are very excited to kickoff our annual fundraiser for 2011. Last year's campaign was very successful for those that participated and added some much needed funds to our program. We're hoping that more of you will take advantage of this opportunity this year. All money collected will be split evenly between your individual account and the general fund, with all expenses related to this fundraiser coming from the general fund portion. Even if your account is already paid in full this year, start accumulating credit towards next year's participation in the program. Money added to the general fund will help with general expenses required to run our programs, purchasing new instruments and equipment, etc.
As you may know, on May 22nd we will be putting on a free community event and concert at Pittsford Park, “Prelude in the Park”, in collaboration with the City of Lake Forest. All of our students will be performing. This special event is being organized to give back to the community, showcase our talents and raise desperately needed funds for our programs.
Please take a moment to create your own fundraising page by clicking on "Get Started" above. Once your page is created begin to send it out to all your e-mail contacts and ask those you e-mail to forward it to theirs. You can even post it to social networking sites, such as Facebook. We know you have much going on and have taken that into consideration for this process. If you follow these easy steps, we are sure to raise a tremendous amount of money for our programs and solidify our future as one of the top ranked music and pageantry programs in Southern California.
Note that we will be giving out special prizes and incentives for students that meet their fundraising marks.
