Fundraising

GCHS Sharks - Chicago 2014 007

Below is a list of the fundraising activities for the school year! In order to reach our goals for music and auxiliary instruction, equipment, uniforms, travel, trips, fees, etc. Parents, we all need to pitch in so that our students can continue to do an outstanding job.

We are always looking for volunteers to chair or co-chair fundraisers. If you chair a fundraising committee, it does not mean that you will be working on that fundraiser alone. What it does mean is that you will be able to work with other band parents who will assist you, and the more volunteers we have, the more successful our band will be. If you have any questions about Fundraising opportunities, please contact Melissa Wilson., President, Band Aid Club.

007, Halloween & GCHS Mays 030 

You’ve seen all the banners that are on the fence around the football field (they take them down over the summer – they will go up again in August) and you’ve always wondered who sells those – WELL – WE can sell them!  Here’s the deal – the Banners are $500 – they are up all school year.

The Band gets $400 – this is a student share Fundraiser for us, so that means the student who sold the banner gets $100 – that’s $100 – in their account!  What a great way to help offset your band fees, the Disney/Universal Studios trip and even Large Band Trips!   Band mom Mrs. Slaven is heading up this fundraiser.  You can email her at gulfcoastbandbanners@gmail.com.  She will be happy to help!

Other larger banner options are available. Please contact Melissa Wilson for more information.

LocaLinx Coupon Books and Gift Cards

As an annual fair share fundraiser GCHS sells LocaLinx coupon cards each August.  Those coupons are good for 1 year, and include a digital link to coupons.  As an added benefit, Localinx is now selling select gift cards to some of the local places featured in the coupon book.  If you are going to visit these places anyway, buy a gift card from Localinx.  The GCHS band does get a little money donated to us for every gift card purchase.  Every little bit helps.

Student Share Fundraisers for Non-Football Concessions

How can I put money in my students account? You must have worked at least 1 Varsity football game or volunteered more than 25 hours working in another capacity as a volunteer during the varsity football games  (approval in needed by Melissa Wilson, click to email her, and your band student must work with you.  Your student is only excused if they have a GCHS band event, such as rehearsal or concert during the entire time you are scheduling to work.  Any deviation from this does require approval from Melissa Wilson.  Your student having a test the following day or another sports practice/game does not qualify as an excuse.
