Dinner tomorrow at Raising Canes, a fundraiser for the band.  TOMORROW from 10am to 10pm.  It’s at the North Canton Location by Chick-fil-a & Joann’s, across the street from Target. You don’t need to show the flyer, but you must mention the band.

Our first trip accounts fundraiser opportunity is Handel’s Pint Cards. The dates for this fundraiser is Monday, February 21 thru Friday, March 18. There will be a box in the band room in which you can turn in your forms and money. 
Each Pint card is $5.75 and good for one (1) pint of any flavored ice cream, redeemable at Handel’s Ice Cream. Students participating will receive a portion of the $5.75 into their trip accounts managed by the Green Band Boosters. The amount each student earns per card sold will be based on how many we sell as a group. All money is to be collected up front (pre-sold) and all checks written out to the GREEN BAND BOOSTERS. Once the money has been collected, Handel’s will then create cards for students to deliver. See current fundraisers page for more details.

Finally, Scrips is having Thank Scripting days coming up on Feb 24 and Feb 25. Check out the Scrips Fundraising page for more information on Scrips and how purchasing gift cards through the program help the band!
