Hello Red Knight Families!
Please see the below information regarding the Jet Blue fundraising opportunity. There will be an informational meeting Tuesday 1/12 @ 7pm in the band room. If able to attend we would love to see you! This is a great opportunity to raise money for the band and to cover band fees for one or multiple years!
Jet Blue Park/Red Sox Fundraiser
The North Fort Myers Band will once again be operating a concession stand at Jet Blue Park for the Boston Red Sox Spring Training season. This is a great opportunity for parents to raise funds, not only for our band program, but to help defray, substantially, the cost of our children’s Marching Band fees. Last year, parent volunteers, raised over $8,000.00 that was directly credited to their child’s individual Band account. The Band Program itself received over $6,000.00. This revenue not only assists with student fees, but supports the financial needs of our high quality music education we offer our young adults.
Alumni, parents, close family members, and students 17 or older can volunteer. This venture is only feasible with the help of your support by volunteering to work our concession stand.
Please look over the following schedule and let me know your availability. If we do not have enough people to cover our stand, I will have no alternative but to relinquish it to another organization.
