Coffee Fundraiser for Student Accounts

HRHS Orchestra Families,

Students will be provided order forms in class for a Coffee sale that is designed to complement our Butter Braid sales (Who doesn't like coffee with their Butter Braids?)  Like the Butter Braids, the coffee order forms need to be turned in with payment by November 9th.  The coffee should arrive no later than the Butter Braids so that the students can deliver them together to anyone who orders both.  Each bag of coffee is sold for $12, with $5 going into the student's fundraising account for each bag sold.  If you need to print out additional Coffee order forms, they can be accessed at this link.

Life is Like a Box of Chocolates ...

HRHS Orchestra Families,

The Booster Club has purchased boxes of chocolate bars for one of this year's fundraising opportunities.  This fundraiser will work as follows:

  • Purchase a box of 60 chocolate bars for $60 (cash or check made out to HRHS Orchestra), $30 will be immediately added to your student's fundraising account
  • Sell the chocolate bars for $1 each and re-coup your $60 investment
  • Purchase another box for $60 and repeat as many times as you like while supplies last, $30 out of each $60 purchase goes into your student's account

If you sell each chocolate bar for $1, you will break even and your student will earn $30 in fundraising money for each box.

You will have an opportunity to buy a chocolate bar to sample for yourself at Wednesday's concert, at which time you can also purchase one or more boxes to join this fundraiser and immediately put money into your student's account.  If you are interested in taking advantage of this fundraiser, please bring $60 cash or a check for $60 made out to HRHS Orchestra to Wednesday's concert, we will have boxes available to purchase on the spot and take home with you.

See you there!
