We had a great time at the Weatherford game Friday, and UNT on Saturday (even if that event was cut short). Students have definitely earned their long weekend!
With 2 days left to go, we’ve raised nearly $5000 on Fundraise Genius! Our current lead fundraiser is Aidan Tran, with over $760 raised.
All funds raised support the CHS Band Booster, which supports the band throughout the year.
It’s not too late to get in on the action – log in to Fundraise Genius to upload your contacts who you think might financially support the Mighty Eagle Band. Our goal is 5 donors per student, but the more you list, the more money we can bring in! All funds raised will go to the Band Booster to help support the band. If we meet our goal of $10,000 raised, the top fundraiser student gets to take the clippers to Mr. Dunning’s head!
We still need several parent volunteers to assist Friday night at the CHS/NCHS game. We specifically need:
- Pit crew – meet the band just before halftime, assist moving equipment onto the field for the show and back off. Very short job, and a great seat for the show!
- Concession stand – two different shifts available. Football concessions are a huge part of our fundraising activities for the year.
All volunteers receive free entry to the game, and will be entered into a drawing for a Visa gift card at the end of the season.
Volunteer opportunities are posted to Charms. For more information, contact volunteer coordinator Lorna Tran at firstname.lastname@example.org.
