Fundraising

There are so many expenses for show choir! Fundraising helps the school, the boosters and the kids off-set some of the costs. This year, a multi-pronged approach will help us achieve our goals. For more information on these opportunities, please contact the person listed. Thank you for your support!

Fall Sale Fundraiser

This fall, Lincoln East Show Choir singers and band members will have the option to offset the cost of their show choir fees through fundraising. Sales of Village Inn Pie cards and Eileen’s Cookie Dough will begin on Wednesday, October 9.

Village Inn Pie Cards are sold for $14 each, with $5.50 of profit for your student for each pie card sold. Families who choose to sell pie cards will request them IN ADVANCE (see below) in increments of 10 to be checked out on distribution day. By requesting and picking up the cards, you are assuming financial responsibility for that amount of cards. If you pick up 10 cards, you are responsible for returning either $140 or an equivalent combination of money and unsold cards. You will be asked to “sign out” these cards indicating your financial responsibility.

Help us get your Village Inn Pie Cards ready before your pick up day! We are asking ALL SHOW CHOIR FAMILIES to please fill out this form https://forms.gle/5Gvv6cgAtogzam6A6 as soon as possible to indicate how many cards you would like to be picked up, and what date you would like to pick them up. They will be counted out, labeled with your student’s name, and ready for FAST pickup! If you choose NOT to sell pie cards, please complete the form with your student’s name and just say ZERO in the amount of cards requested, so we know not to look for your child picking up a packet at the Booster meeting on October 8 or after school on October 11.

Eileen’s Cookie Dough will be sold completely online this year! More info with a link to our fundraising site will be distributed on 10/9. Supporters will order directly through the website, they can order as much cookie dough as they want, and pick up as much as they want at a time at either Lincoln Eileen’s store. Eileen’s will keep track of how much your supporters have purchased and will send each supporter an email when a portion of their order has been picked up to let them know how much remains. Students will earn a profit of $5.50 per tub of cookie dough and $1.50 per tub of frosting toward their fees for the year. The Boosters will get a report identifying the total individual sales for each student, and will deposit in student accounts accordingly after sales have concluded and been finalized.

ALL FUNDRAISING SALES WILL CLOSE ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5. Fundraising volunteers will be on hand in the music room on Tuesdays 10/22, 10/29, and 11/5 from 2-3pm to collect completed pie card envelopes. PLEASE PLAN TO HAVE ALL MONEY AND UNSOLD CARDS RETURNED TO THE MUSIC ROOM NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 5.

Any questions about either fundraiser, please contact Jill Swank, Fundraising Chair by email at jill@swanks.net or call/text 402-570-5549.
