Good Morning!!

I am sure everyone is having a great summer. Hopefully you are getting in some relaxation time. Hopefully you are staying cool with this crazy high temperatures!  

I wanted to reach out to the choir families and encourage you to sign up and participate in the current fundraising opportunities. Yolanda, our hard working VP of Fundraising Booster is providing some opportunities to raise money for the choir as well as the individual students that have signed up for show choir for the 2017/18 school year.

 If you are a returning choir family, you know that participation fees can add up quickly. The Boosters try to afford many opportunities to raise funds to ease the financial responsibilities for families. Currently we have the Isotopes fundraiser going on. So far this year we have not had the level of participation that we have had in previous years. In fact we have had to take our name off the roster for the games due to too few people signed up. 
Just a little background to how the Isotopes credits work... we get a portion of the sales from the concessions. The more people that sign up the more money we can make because we will get placed in a larger stand. Ovations has to "staff" the stands accordingly. If we have a high participation, the per game credit tends to be higher. Last year the credit per game was an average of $28.00. You can potentially earn a significant amount of money towards your choir fees. The more people you have working for a student, the more credits you earn!! AND students that are 16 years old can work the games to earn money towards their own fees. This is a great opportunity to team build among the choir families as well as learn some great skills....and as a BONUS earn money towards your choir fees. I was very excited last year as our family personally earned over $900.00 just from Isotopes alone. This was a huge opportunity to ease the financial portion of the choir experience for my child. SO don't delay....get online and sign up through the Sign Up Genius link and add your name! We are very excited to see more families participate. I have included the link for the Isotopes sign up below:


ALSO, this Sunday at Eldorado High School in the North parking lot we will be holding a Goodwill Good Deeds fundraiser for the general choir fund. This fundraiser goes to help offset the general expenses we incur throughout the school year. This includes beefing up the Scholarship fund. For every bin we fill the choir receives $ 50.00. That adds up very quickly!! So go through your closets, cupboards, garages and kids rooms. If your kids are like mine, there is a ton of stuff in their rooms! Bring it by the school Sunday June 25th from 10am to 2pm 
We also need people to help load the drop off items into the bins, volunteer time slots are only 2.5 hours. This is an easy opportunity to help the choir as well as get to know other choir families. I have provided the link below for sign up. Please join us Sunday to make this fundraiser a successful one! It takes a great group of volunteers working together as a team to make all of our functions a success, and we welcome you all to join in! 

If you have any questions regarding fundraising, please reach out to Yolanda Fabian at thefabian4@comcast.net.

As always we enjoy seeing all of the choir families at any event we put together. Please go today and sign up for either OR both opportunities detailed above. Have a fantastic Wednesday, the week is half over :)
