Dear Band & Orchestra Parents,
Today we kicked off the annual Alton Band & Orchestra Builders (ABOB) Mr. Fundraising Fall Fundraiser with the Alton M.S. and Aton H.S. band and orchestra students. The link above is the fundraiser letter that was passed out today along with the fundraising packet. Mr. Fundraising is a long-time family owned company based out of Chesterfield, MO. We had a very successful fundraiser with this company last year.
We prefer the students sell to people they know: at church, parents work (if allowed), family and friend gatherings, etc. Please make sure your child is safe if he/she goes door to door. You can also sell to out of town friends and family through Mr. Fundraising’s online store: www.mrfundraising.com/tef. Our group id for on-line orders is ABOB. Note: shipping charges apply for on-line orders. Your child will earn credit towards the prizes (see attached letter) for purchases made during our fundraiser period. The top sellers at Alton H.S. and & Alton M.S. will also each receive $100.
Collect money now. Checks are made payable to ABOB. Please write your child’s name on the memo line of all checks.
Please make sure your child’s name and either MS or HS (middle school or high school) is written on all order forms and on the fundraising envelope. Your child’s band and orchestra directors have extra order forms if you need more.
Order forms and money are due Thursday, September, 8. The student turns in the white and yellow copies and you keep the pink copy. Please make sure the orders and money collected add up. Please also write your child’s name on the memo line of checks collected.
Delivery will be the week of October 3 from 3:00 – 5:00 and 6:00 – 7:00 in the music suite at Alton High School. I will email out the actual delivery date as soon as I get the date from Mr. Fundraising.
This year ABOB expects to raise close to $69,000.00 through our fundraisers and events. All of these funds support our over 800 elementary, middle and high school students in the Alton School District band and orchestra program and the over 150 members of the Marching 100.
Attached is also another flier detailing what ABOB does for our district band and orchestra program.
ABOB needs your support, but if you prefer not to sell you may make a donation. All donations are tax deductible and can be sent in with the order form or placed online at www.abob.net.
To keep up with our events go to www.abob.net or follow us on Facebook: ABOB-Alton Band and Orchestra Builders.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your tremendous support of our district band and orchestra program!
