There are two big fundraisers going on this month: one at Firehouse Subs, and another at Krispy Kreme!
The Firehouse Subs fundraiser will take place on Wednesday, Dec 11th, between 9:00am and 10:00pm at the Ray and 101 Firehouse Subs location. This fundraiser has been set up in partial thanks for them providing free-of-charge sandwiches for one of our previous competitions. For the band to get credit, you must present the flyer, available here.
The Krispy Kreme fundraiser involves the sale of Krispy Kreme gift cards any time between December 2nd and 15th. The order form is available here. For this fundraiser, you take orders for the cards ($12 each), with checks payable to "CdS Band Boosters," and return the orders with the money to Sharon Martin via the Band Room by Dec 16th. Sharon will obtain the cards and return the orders to you before the end of school on Dec 19th. Your band account will be credited $6 for every card you sell.
Update: We are still looking for a few more Dinner Volunteers to help out before the concert. If you are available, please sign up here.
Please join us for the Holiday Concert and Dinner on Monday, December 9th! The dinner, which is catered by Rigatony's, takes place in the CDS cafeteria from 5:00-6:30pm, and the concert begins at 7:00pm in the auditorium. Please submit your dinner orders (via the order form) by December 3rd. In addition, we could still use a few volunteers to help with poinsettia set up and delivery on the day of the concert. If you are interested in helping out, please sign up here.
The first is the Hot Chocolate Run, which takes place on Sunday, December 8th, at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. For the Hot Chocolate run, we will need 80 volunteers, with a mix of Adults and Students. We will be helping out at the finish line - passing out water, Gatorade, finisher medals, and other goodies. The sign-up link for this event is available here.
The second event is Iron Girl, which takes place December 15th at Fountain Hills. For this event, we've been able to expand our volunteer spots to significantly increase our donation amount, so we will be providing 102 volunteers in many capacities. Please see the link for specific spots that need to be filled. Note that some spots are for ADULTS, and some are for STUDENTS. The adults for each section will oversee our students at that station. You can find the sign-up link for Iron Girl here. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ianet Molina at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: This also counts as service hours for the students who volunteer.
We're looking for fun (but not necessarily musically talented) adults to join the Corona del Sol Adult Steel Band. With this event, owning a Hawaiian shirt is more important than having a sense of rhythm. If you're interested, you can find the sign-up form (including rehearsal schedule) here.
Youth Steel Band
The Youth Steel Band is a great program for middle school students who are involved in music programs at their school. Learn the music of the islands on authentic steel drums. The youth steel band sign up form is available here!
