Jazz Concert at Barnes and Noble featuring all Jazz Bands and Combos. 10%-15% of sales in the store that day go to the entire Band by mentioning the Centennial Band Boosters. Purchases can be made online as well that day and for the following 4 days using the code 11358959 or printing out the attached voucher.
Sales in the Cafe will benefit us as well. Even Nook purchases benefit us but at a lower percentage. So come grab a snack, a drink and a good book and help us raise more funds for the band!
These purchases may be made with Barnes and Noble gift cards purchased online at shopwithscrip.com and the band will receive those proceeds as well. This means that we can earn money from two different sources on the same single purchase!!!

If you buy a $20 gift card, $1.80 goes to the band for the gift card purchase at shopwithscrip.com.
When you use the gift card at Barnes and Noble that day or at Barnesandnoble.com on May 6-11 the band gets another $2.00-3.00.
So you spend $20 total and the band gets $3.80-$4.80

Band Parents and Students,
We have been offered the opportunity to sell food in the stands at the U of I home football games. In order to take advantage of this you must attend the orientation Wed. Aug. 14 @ 6pm. The minimum age is 15 so adults are encouraged to work too. Once you attend orientation you may sell food at any of the home football games this season!!!! So you get to earn money and watch the football game!
After each game 15% of your sales will be reported and paid to the Band Boosters with a spreadsheet showing how much each person earned. As with all fundraisers 50% will go to the Boosters and 50% will go to your student's trip account. (We have to do this to maintain our tax exempt, nonprofit status.) In this situation however everyone gets to keep their own tips after the game!
To attend the orientation park in the lot west of ARC (IMPE Bld.) & walk to gate #24. All of our questions will be answered there. Attending the orientation does not mean that you have to work any of the games but if you think you might want to work you must attend the orientation.
If you have any questions about this fundraiser please contact Diana Bidner at email@example.com
See you there on Wednesday!
Once again we are teaming up with Macy's for their Shop For A Cause Day. We have been given coupons for 25% off all day on August 24th. We will be selling them for $5 and the Band Boosters keeps the proceeds. This is free money for the band!!!!
