This is the largest & easiest and MOST lucrative fund raiser of the year.
PLEASE don’t wait! Start TODAY!
Businesses in the town EXPECT the Band Students to solicit ads. AND — you can sell ads to businesses outside of Stratford, as well as taking out an Ad for your family to wish “Good Luck” to a member. (Many people see the ad book as a type of “yearbook”, and as such want to purchase an ad for the sentimental keepsake value).
Every student MUST raise funds for the Band/Guard — so why not buy an ad? All ads are Tax-Deductible (as the Band Parents are a 501(c)3 not for profit). Never pay out of pocket — buy an ad and get the tax deduction!
Keep in mind:
* Many students will be going out TODAY to try and scoop up ads from Prime locations, such as Paradise Green & Barnum Ave.
* Some ads are limited (Back cover, inside cover etc…) and will sell very fast — we will send out notifications when they are sold).
Here is the form that you will need — https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B093prcObtSVcVlHQTFDRDNXREU
