Every year, Houston Band students and families are asked to participate in a few select - but highly important - fundraising opportunities. These fundraisers are vital to the band's ability to continue to provide all the "extras" that make our band program great! Fundraisers support the purchase of new instruments and music, help pay for our outside instructors, help cover costs of events such as Band Camp and much...MUCH more!
Please take a moment to check out the various fundraising opportunities included in this bulletin. Knowing how busy all our families are, we strive to find fundraising options that are EASY for students and families to engage in and have success. In order to meet our budgeted goal, each fundraiser has a recommended family goal, and we need everyone's participation. If you have any questions about our fundraisers, please don't hesitate to ask! Thank you all for your continued support of our amazing Houston Band!

These are a very popular product for the band!
All Items are $20 Each – Goal is 6 per family
Sale begins September 12, 2022 and ends October 3, 2022
A couple very important facts regarding the cookie dough:
Cookie dough is frozen, so it must be picked up and delivered/stored in your home freezer on the day of delivery
The expected delivery date will be prior to Thanksgiving, with the exact date determined once orders are turned in
The fundraiser profits will be used to support the extra expenses of the band including extra instructors, buses, meals, equipment, etc.
Paper packets will be sent home with each band and color guard member but you can also check out and place an order online for cookie dough ($20 each) on The Houston Band Website (link coming soon). Checks or cash will be placed in Woody in the Band Room or a check can be mailed to the band booster PO box.
