Saturday, September 17th, 8am-5pm Heritage/Woodland Meadows Parking Lot
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS: Band, Orchestra and Choir Students (Grades 7-12) collect pledges and then work together with parent
volunteers to wash the equivalent of 1000 cars between 8am and 5pm on September 17th, 2011. Students will sign-up and receive a pledge sheet in music class. Approximately 40 students are needed to staff each shift. Students sign up in their band, orchestra or choir class.
50% of all individual pledge dollars collected by each student (whether they work the car wash or not) goes into a student’s personal account which can be used for anything musical-related (e.g.: CDs, instrument repair, lessons etc.)
The top 3 pledge collectors will win the following;
The shifts for students and parents are the same: 7:30-9:30am (includes set-up), 9:30-11:30am, 1:30-3:30pm and 3:30-5:30 pm (includes clean-up). Approximately 20 parents/guardians are needed to supervise/support students during each shift.
Adult support is essential to the success of this event! We need YOU to volunteer for the whole day, all morning, all afternoon or just a shift. We need ADULTS for Powerwash, Suds, Rinse, Dry and Appreciation stations. We also need help organizing refreshments for the workers who are there all day and folks to wash and return towels after the event. IF YOU CALL ASAP, YOU’LL HAVE FIRST DIBS TO SUPERVISE A “WET” OR “DRY” STATION.
This event is always a success because Students, Teachers and Parents work together towards a common goal-and IT IS FUN!

CLEAN USED TOWELS NEEDED, TURN INTO ANY MUSIC CLASS BY MONDAY SEPTEMBER 12TH
