Silent Auction Items

Rams,

A Silent Auction is held at the Spring Concert each year. In the past, each major section of the band has been assigned a theme and then each member of the section is encouraged to donate items for baskets.  Each member of the section is asked to bring 1 – 2 items for their section basket.
This year, instead of assigning a theme, the student leadership team (drum majors, officers, and section leaders) selected the themes for their section.  Here they are with examples of things each student can bring. You aren’t limited to these examples. You can be as creative as you want with your items.
  • Percussion: Breakfast Basket (ex: muffins, juice, pop tarts, etc.)
  • Saxophones: Summer Basket (ex: sun block, pool toys, Mens/Womens flip flops)
  • Trumpets/Mellows: Bath & Body Works Basket (ex: lotions, soaps, etc.)
  • Flutes: Spa Basket (ex: eye masks, bubble bath, lotion, face masks, etc.)
  • Clarinets: Movie Night Basket (gift certificates to the movies, pop corn, pop corn containers, movie posters, t-shirts,  etc.)
  • Low Brass: Spurs & Cowboys Basket (EX: posters, fan gear, t-shirts, cups, koozies, etc)
  • Color Guard: Health Basket (ex: exercise video, yoga mat, gel insoles, mini pedometer, etc.)
There will be additional baskets that have been donated at the Spring concert.  Anyone who would like to donate a complete basket is welcome to.
Please bring items in by MONDAY, May 22nd.  I will be collecting them after school and will begin assembling baskets on Monday Night (the 22nd) & Tuesday, May 23rd.  The section whose basket brings in the most money will get a small prize at the banquet!
Thanks,

Help Us Save the Earth!

If you’re like everyone else, you have those old phones that aren’t active, that you let your young kiddos, grandkids, nieces, & nephews play with.  The good news is that we can help you get rid of them in a secure and helpful way that will allow us to raise funds for the band! Coming at the end of April, you will see collection bins arrive at Marshall.  All you will have to do is drop your old cell phones, smart phones, or tablets into the bins and then Marshall Band will raise funds by recycling those.

Be on the lookout for announcements when the bins arrive! For now you can get your questions answered at : http://revivetechfundraiser.com/

Sponsorship Packets

Hey Ram Community,

At last Tuesday night’s Band Booster meeting, we announced our next corporate fundraisers and handed out these attachments that give more information about the fundraising.
We’ll be hosting a Bowl-A-Thon on MARCH 26th and a golf tournament on April 8th. We will need everyone’s help collecting corporate donations for each of these things.
These fundraisers are both a student fundraiser, as well as a corporate fundraising opportunity.   For every corporate sponsorship a student can attain, they can earn $25.00 towards their student account.
FOR THE BOWL-A-THON:
The Sponsorship solicitation will run from now until the 10th of MARCH.
FOR THE GOLF TOURNAMENT:
The Sponsorship solicitation will run from now until the 20th of MARCH.
The students can take the Sponsorship Packet (CLICK HERE) to a business and that business should have all the information they need to make decisions about donations to give.
We’re super excited about these events.  Be on the lookout for the email with registration information for these events soon!
Thank you,
Veronica (Ronnie) Santiago
VP, Corporate Fundraising
