The Big Band Dance is about 10 weeks away! (Still plenty of time to approach last year’s donors and some new ones, and to make this year’s Silent Auction another big money maker for Paschal Band programs.) Here are some forms to get us started: Letterhead, the 2013 Donor List, and the 2014 Donor Form.
e-mail Jackie Ferguson for more info.
This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and our most successful and efficient way to raise funds for band. Our goal is $25,000, so it will take lots of auction items to make this happen. Let’s get moving the next few weeks and nail down a majority of our auction items.
PTA board nominations
Nominations are now open for the 2014-2015 PTA Board. Self-nominations are strongly encouraged. The deadline is March 25, 2014. Visit this link to get the form.
