NC State Fair Fundraiser Information.

posted Aug 29, 2017, 7:17 PM by Athens Drive High School Band
2017 North Carolina State Fair Parking Fundraiser: Sign-up will be available on Saturday, September 16th, at Noon. 


The 2017 NC State Fair runs Thursday, October 12 –  Sunday, October 22, 2017.

What is the State Fair Parking Fundraiser? 
Athens is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to collect money for cars to park in the Gregory Poole parking lots during the evening and weekend hours of the North Carolina State Fair.  These shifts pay $40 to your band account.  In return, during weekday work hours, we monitor and control traffic for the Gregory Poole parking lots, making sure only employees park.  These shifts pay $30 to your band account.  This fundraiser fulfills one service credit per shift.  Profits above what is paid to individual accounts go to the band’s general fund.  
Each shift there is a "Floater" position.  The "Floater" is the point of contact for the shift, so experience working at the State Fair parking fundraiser is required for this position.

This year we will use the new sign-up system.  The sign up will be available beginning Noon on Saturday, September 16, at noon.  This is a popular fundraiser,  therefore there will be a limit of 5 shifts per band student for the first week that signups are open. 
Beginning Saturday, September 23th, if there are shift openings, volunteers may then sign up for another 5 shifts. 
Beginning Saturday September 30th,  if there are still vacant shifts, volunteers are free to sign up for any that remain. 
Please Note - Volunteers must be 18 or older.


Thanks for supporting this great fundraiser.  We look forward to an exciting and profitable year at the fair!
