We trust you had an enjoyable Spring Break.
Hopefully everyone is well rested – especiallythose who went to Disney..
We'd like to share some of your special moments withthe rest of the band
family. If you havepictures that can be shared, please email or contact the
webmasters at webmaster@JordanBand.org.
The Gala will be held on Thursday, May 28.
You can help now by:
Asking businesses and corporations (where
you work) if they would like to be a corporate sponsor for our concert.
If so, please let Virginia Taylor know and she will follow up.
Soliciting ads from businesses you
patronize. This is easy and many businesses are happy to do it because
the price is right and the ad will reach over 800 people! You will need
the Community Business Leader letter and the Program Ad sheet from the
website. Print them up and carry them with you. We have already asked
many businesses; that list will be posted to the website.
Buying an ad for your child. Senior
parents may especially want to do this. See the Program Ad sheet on the
website for more information.All ads are due by Friday, May 1.
Donating items for our raffle and auction. In the
past we have had a week at a beach house, sports tickets, etc. All
donations are tax-deductible. Please contact Paige Cragg with any
raffle/auction questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
Selling tickets! We will begin ticket
sales after Spring Break. We have a total of 800 tickets to sell, which
averages out to 7per student. Be thinking now about who you can sell
tickets to. We'd like the students to play to a sell-out crowd. Prices
will be $15for adults, $10 for children, students, senior adults (65+),
Jordan faculty and staff. Children under 5 will be free.
(You do not need to get a ticket for your band student.)
Signing-up to volunteer the night of the Gala.
Volunteers will be needed to sell raffle tickets, distribute programs
and help with chaperoning. No one will miss their child perform. Contact
