Mattress Fundraiser

mattress fundraiser2018

Our Mattress Fundraiser Sale is Sunday, February 25 from 11am to 5pm at the high school in the new gym. We need your help over the next few weeks to get the word out in the community. Here's how your can help our band and your band member.
1.   Help find at least 2 people who need a mattress set and get them to commit to come by our sale on Sunday, February 25.  

Most of our sales will come from the efforts of parents and band members to find people who need a mattress set and would like to support  your son/daughter and our band program.  Although most of us don't like fundraising, the reason we like this sale is because it is very easy for everyone.....we just need to find people in our community, who support our program, and who need a mattress set. It 's that simple.  Make phone calls, post on facebook, email your friends, take flyers to work and church, get the players to go door to door, etc....just tell everyone you know about this sale, find people who need mattresses, and get them to come to our sale. The company we work with will take care of everything else. Remember too, they not only have mattresses but also adjustable beds, awesome gel pillows, and bed protectors....and all their prices are 30-60% off retail.
2.  Go to the dedicated Wetumpka Band Mattress Fundraiser facebook event page, "join" the event, and "invite" all your friends, and "share" future posting to help answer any questions about the event.  

If we have 100 parents, with 100 friends each, and we all do this, we have just reached 10,000 people! Please do this right away ....the link and Instructions are below.
Remember, your band member earns at least $25 toward every referral sale. If 5 people buy a mattress/set, 5 sales will earn him/her $200! Plus, every sale helps our band.
Thanks in advance for your help and support of our band program.
