We Really Need Your Help This Weekend

Dear Band Families,

We are down to 61 openings for Air Show this weekend. Those 61 spots are worth over $2,000! Plus, our numbers for Sunday and Monday are low enough that we may not be invited back next year. Help us earn money for our band this year and keep the opportunity for future years. It is fun and easy work. You get to see the show for free, and lunch & parking are provided too. Make it a family day and volunteer with your high school kids!

Please sign up here.

If you have questions, contact Gary Diehl at gdiehl@broadview-heights.org.

Car Raffle Tickets Were Distributed

Dear Band Families,

The Band Booster Car Raffle tickets were distributed last night after practice. If your child did not receive their envelope ask them to see Mr. Burdick to pick it up. Please remind your student that they are responsible for the raffle tickets they received. Whether they are able to sell them or not, they need to be turned in by Wednesday, October 11, 2017. DO NOT LOSE YOUR TICKETS!!

Thank you for your cooperation in this Fundraiser!

A Message From Mr. Vitale

Dear Band Families

On behalf of the Band Boosters, I just wanted to remind parents that we still need volunteers for this weekend’s Air Show. We have slots that need to be filled for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. It is not hard work, there are plenty of breaks, and lunch is provided! You can even make an event of it with your student, because they can help as well (as long as they are over 15) and then you guys get to see the Air Show while you are helping out!

You can signup online using our form.

You can also call and contact Gary Diehl 440-915-1178 or Amanda Kost 440-864-6543 if a phone call is easier.

This is one of our biggest fundraisers for the Band - and if we are not able to fully staff it, then we run the risk of not being invited to run it in the future. This is a great opportunity that many sports and organizations would love to have, and we are very fortunate to have this fundraiser - so let’s work hard to make sure we can hold onto it! Any time you can give towards this fundraiser is greatly appreciated and directly benefits your student. Please use the link to sign up or call one of the above people to help with this. Thanks!

-Mr. V.

To volunteer for a position: CONTACT AMANDA KOST: 4408646543 or memandy@ameritech.net. THANKS!

Here is what we need:

PHOTO BUTTONS – need a parent to help the chairperson with Picture Day, process the pictures, help make the buttons and distribute at home games. It is a lot of fun… especially making the buttons!

50/50 RAFFLE – need a parent to assist our chairperson the nights of the home games. You would help check in our volunteers, distribute tickets to our volunteers to sell, collect money, tear tickets and help close out the raffle. Involvement is from 6 pm – halftime.

CHAPERONES – help chairperson to make sure all buses have chaperones. May require calling or emailing volunteers. Need to be able to chaperone the busses to away games and contests. It is a great way to meet the band and no worries about parking or driving to away events!

Clothing Drive Correction

The Band Boosters have recently learned that Easter Seals has transferred the part of their organization that does the ‘Fill The Truck' drives to Savers, a global thrift retailer. Savers is an organization that helps more than 120 nonprofit organizations by paying them for donated goods. Your donations are a donation to the North Royalton Band Boosters and are still tax deductible. We will have a charitable tax deduction form for you for tax purposes. We will receive funds based on the weight of what we collect as we have in the past. We will be collecting soft good items (clothing, shoes, purses, blankets, towels, table cloths, etc.) next to the Board of Education (6579 Royalton Road) on Friday (4-9pm), Saturday (10 – 8pm) and Sunday (12 – 6pm).
