Family Fundraisers

2019-20 Family Fundraisers

The Centaurus Band Boosters (CBB) support the following product sales to help students and their families earn funds for band expenses not covered by the CBB’s General Fund. Proceeds from these product sales will be directly credited to each student's CHARMS account. Students and parents can then decide how to apply those fees: to the Annual Band Contribution , Winter Program fees, special band trips, instrumental rental, sticks & mallets, shoe rental, Guard warm-up suits, etc. Families can sell OZO Coffee, Stan's Automotive oil change coupons, Holiday Plants, World’s Finest Chocolate Bars, and Butter Braids. Last year, families raised over $10,000! Visit this page often for the latest information, including downloadable order forms and for sales tips as each fundraiser approaches.

OZO Coffee Fundraiser

OZO Coffee Sales: May 28-June 13, 2019

Sell 16-oz. bags of premium, whole bean, craft roasted coffee, directly sourced from farmers. Full pound bags are just $17 (compare value with 12-oz. bags of grocery store coffee), and students earn $6 credit per bag for their individual CHARMS account. We have a guide to help make sales efforts successful and provide background on OZO to share with customers. Download the Student Guide for Selling OZO. We have created a shareable form letter for students to use who would like to email information about the coffee sales to those who may want to support the band or have a leave-behind for repeat customers.

This quarter we will be offering OZO Organic Blend, OZO Decaf Organic Blend, Espresso Isabelle, and Ursa Major (download descriptions).  Order forms and payments are due on Thursday, June 13. If you would like to drop off forms at Sectionals, Amy will be at the June 11 sectionals at 5pm.  The coffee will be available for pick-up from Amy on Friday, June 21, after 5pm.  Please reach out to Amy Dunbar-Wallis at adwallis@hotmail.com if you have any questions.

Stan’s Auto 4-pack Oil Change Family Fundraiser

We will have an informational meeting with all the details on April 22 at 6:10 pm during the first Spring Sectional. We will have coupons available for sale that night.

    1. Stan’s Automotive has given Centaurus Band Boosters 100 professionally printed coupons that are good for four oil changes for just $5 each (cost to consumer). Band students sell the coupons for $50 each, and the entire $50 goes to their individual CHARMS account. The details for the consumer are here: http://www.stansautomotive.com/thefineprint. Basically, the consumer gets oil changes at the deeply discounted price of $17.50 each, including the cost of the coupons +$5 each time. That’s a steal!

    1. Students/families will purchase no more than four coupons at a time to sell (or keep) for $50 each. Payments must be made at time of pick-up by check made out to Centaurus Band Boosters.

    1. Students/families then sell coupons to family or neighbors, etc. for $50 and keep money as reimbursement.

    1. Whatever you don’t sell can be returned to the Boosters at Mini Band Camp, June 7th or 8th, for a full refund. There will be no returns after June 8.

  1. Heidi Ellis will be chairing this fundraiser. She will be at all three Spring Sectionals to sell coupons. If you would like to reserve coupons for pick up at the 4/29 sectional you can email Heidi and she will have them ready for you.

For 2019-20 season we are starting the sale with 100 coupons. If we run out quickly, we can request more. This is a good opportunity to get an early start on fundraising for the trip to Disney next year.

World’s Finest Chocolate Sales Window: January 11 – February 1, 2019

Sell $1 World’s Finest Chocolate bars, and earn 50% of sales towards your band expenses. Once a student purchases a case, they must sell the entire case. Parent volunteers will be available at the Centaurus Band Boosters closet to sell cases to students from 7:15-7:35 am on Friday mornings from 1/11/19 through 2/1/19.  Mr. Vogelsberg will not be handing out cases or collecting money! Students must give a check directly to the parent volunteers to receive a case of chocolate to sell – sorry, cash cannot be accepted. Bars come in easy-to-carry cases of 60, so earnings are $30/case. Families raised more than $5,000 selling chocolate last year!
