Candlelight Dinner Ticket Sale Contest . . .

CHANCE TO DOUBLE YOUR TICKET SALES!!!!

Hey gang…with the final days of the ticket sales for the Candlelight Dinner upon us….we wanted to offer an opportunity like no other!!!

Again this year, we will be offering the credit for Ms. Profit’s tickets sales to the top seller.  On top of that….we will be entering the names of all of the students who sold 5+ tickets overall into a draw for a chance to double their credits!  That’s right folks….if you sell 5 tickets and your name is drawn…you will be credited for 10 if you sell 10…you will be credited for 20.  It doesn’t get any easier than that!  Based on previous years, that would be a minimum of $150 extra credits….that’s like 10 hours of grocery bagging you WON’T have to do!!!!!  Could it get any better???

I will remind everyone one last time that the cut off for ticket sales at the Scotiabank is Tuesday, Feb 20th.  If anyone is having trouble getting their tickets purchased….please let me know and I will make the arrangements to have the tickets delivered wherever you need them to be.  Let’s put this final push on and get to the 200!  As a group…we can do it!!!

 Thanks

KISH BPA

A reminder of the following items:

*More early morning jazz band rehearsals have been added to the schedule for next week February 12-15.  It is so important that all jazz band students show up to rehearsal.  We have a performance in two weeks.

2nd Deposit $100. for band trip was due last Monday.  Get your deposits into Arlene MacAusland or let her know how you are paying for the deposit, i.e. cash, cheque, or credits.

Candlelight Dinner ticket sales continue.  Time is running out.  Last day for students to get tickets or sell tickets is Tuesday, February 20.  Students and parents don’t forget to sign up for a time slot to help with the Candlelight Dinner.  Information has been posted and emailed to everyone.

BPA meeting at 5:30pm Tuesday, February 13 – the executive will be meeting in the boardroom.  Meetings are open to any band parent of students in senior band.

 

Dear Band Parents and Students,

 The second trip deposit is due next Monday, February 5th. It is $100. I would ask that everyone contact Arlene(macauslandfamily@hotmail.com) before next Monday to inform her if you plan on paying the deposit with credits, credits and cash or all cash. If you are wondering about your current credits, she would be happy to give you your current total. We have also set up an email address if you would like to pay via e-transfer. Please send your e-transfer to deposits@kishband.com. You should check with Arlene first before doing the e-transfer so she knows to keep her eyes out for that email.

 I have not received any items yet for the silent auction. Please take a minute to check out the past years to see what items we have had before. The auction is really important as it helps offset the price of the dinner so more of the ticket sales can go directly to the students. If you would like to help the band fundraise but don’t know how this would be a perfect way. Contact local businesses for items.

 Only 15 of the 31 band members have signed up for the Candlelight dinner, remember that everyone needs to take a moment and fill it in, even if you are in the jazz band. There are two different times on Saturday so if you have plans for Saturday night, I’d suggest you quickly take one of the morning shifts before they are all taken.

 We’ve only had 3 parents come forward to help with the meal so far. We need 10 more to help or the meal won’t go over as well as we’d like.

 We are also still in need of 12 more desserts.

All signups can be found under Candlelight Dinner at www.kishband.com .  Refer to your email message for the login and password for Candlelight Dinner.

 If you have any questions about the dinner please contact Sheila at sheila_simmonds@cooperators.ca .

 Thanks everyone,

Francis
