YOUR SUPPORT NEEDED -- PNC Fundraiser needs volunteer HELP for December events. December is the busiest month for PNC with 16+ events. There is currently 17 volunteer spots that need to be filled. The band has a contact agreement with PNC to fill each event. PNC will CHARGE the band general fund for unfilled slots. Signup link: http://signup.com/go/CV8Xxu
$$$ PAY INCREASE FOR DECEMBER EVENTS $$$ -- Merry Christmas the ADHSMB Board has approved a pay increase for the month of December, every PNC Lead will earn $35 and every worker will earn $30 for each event worked.
PLANNED BAND TRIPS -- May 2017 Atlanta, GA $325-$350 per band member, December 2017 Outback Bowl, Tampa FL I’m guessing around $800 based on the cost of last year’s Disney Trip. Don’t wait to start fundraising for these trips, money earned now can be carried over to next year. Don’t wait for next year’s fundraisers to start saving as some fundraisers will not be available next year.
FREE MONEY -- PNC is the last service credit opportunity of the year for fundraiser participants to earn free money. Each PNC event worked, earns an additional $35 service credit for your students’ band account (limit 5 service credits per family per year). For example: participating in 5 events as a $30 worker plus 5 $35 service credits = $150 + $165 = $315 goes a long way to pay for the Atlanta trip in May.
TAKE THE CHALLENGE – Try it you’ll like it….. PNC events are easy fundraisers to work, usually a 5-6 hour commitment in a clean, friendly, environmentally controlled work space, with a break, free drinks and a snack. Stand takes 15 minutes to open or close. No heat, no grease, easy menu, simple inventory, helpful managers and support staff. Workers are usually only busy during the 20 minute intermission(s) or halftime. The rest of the time is spent exchanging experiences and stories with other band families. Take the challenge, bring a friend. Still uncertain, contact me and we can work an event together.
DO NOT FORGET – PNC has events every month till April. Take the opportunity to start planning ahead to help fill future PNC events to HELP the band meet its contract agreement with PNC.
Contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for your assistance and participation in the PNC Fundraiser.
