Fundraising for BHS Band Members
The Broughton Band has one of the lowest high school band costs for participating students in the state! That's due to the success of our fundraisers. We can only keep that tradition going if everyone continues to participate in our many fundraisers. These efforts help individual student accounts as well as contributing to the general band fund. Our hope is that you never have to write a check to cover any of your students' band expenses.
We offer many opportunities to fundraise Fair Share Fees and trip costs, as well as raising money for the general band fund. There will be many different types of fundraisers throughout the school year, so we expect every family to participate in as many fundraisers as possible!
Fundraising teaches students leadership skills, gives them self-confidence, helps them to learn the value of money and hard work, and makes them active participants in the band program. Please take the opportunity to actively participate in as many of our fundraisers that meet your family needs.
Please see below for brief descriptions of our fundraisers. You can click on the links to get more information about each one.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about our fundraisers or merchandise.
Broughton Band Merchandise: We offer an assortment of Broughton Band merchandise - stickers, magnets, coolers, cookbooks, and spirit wear.
Butterbraids: We sell these flaky braided pastries filled with a variety of flavors twice a year. Enjoy sharing with your family, friends, and neighbors!
Silent Auction: Each year we try to hold a Silent Auction event. Students will be able to solicit auction items from the community and earn the proceeds towards their accounts. The auction event will be a fun event with entertainment and treats!
Fall Fruit and Meat Sale: This is the most profitable and well known fundraiser for our students! We start selling our famous Broughton Band Fruit in October for delivery in time for the holidays.
Grocery Cards: We offer Food Lion and Lowe's Foods gift cards all year long. Each time you purchase a $100 gift card, your student gets $5 in his/her band account and you get $100 to spend at the grocery store.
Set and Forget Fundraising: Do you shop at Harris Teeter or online with Amazon? Each of these venders has a program that donates proceeds to BHS Band. Please register your Harris Teeter card with the band. Purchase on Amazon through AmazonSmile to benefit BHS Band.
Magazine Sales: We offer an online magazine sale. Set up your account at the beginning of the year and your friends and family can order magazines and gift items year round.
Mattress Sale: Yes, you're reading right, we sell mattresses! For one Saturday in November, the Broughton High School Cafeteria becomes a mattress showroom and we sell high quality, name brand mattresses. You can earn $25 for each person you refer who purchases a mattress.
Winter Fruit: This is like our Fall Fruit Sale without meat. Many of the people who bought fruit for the holidays will be ready to replenish their refrigerators!
World's Finest Chocolates: Usually held in the fall, this sale is always fun for our kids. Who doesn't like chocolate?
