Football Mania – Week 7
We have a lot of great fundraisers going on to help you fund your students fees and Disney trip. There is something for everyone!
Thank you for your support at the Margaritas Dine Around!
This Sunday come join us for a meal at the Greene Turtle, a portion of your entire bill goes to the North Penn Music Aides. Please have the Green Turtle flyer on your phone or printed to show the staff! See you there!
Who wants a chance to earn an expense paid trip for their student to Disney this April!!!!!! $50 lottery tickets are available until December 2nd. Only 200 tickets will be sold! All monies will be deposited into the students CHARMS account as a credit. No monies will be paid out in cash. The money raised can only be used for a student in the music program. Maximum payout will be $1,500. If less then 30 tickets are sold the amount sold will still be deposited into the students CHARMS account. For example if we only sell 20 tickets then $1,000 will be deposited into the account. Any additional monies made over the $1,500 will go into the Disney fund to reduce the cost of the trip for all who are participating. Contact Jenn Karpf at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements to get your tickets! Jenn will be at Hospitality Knight this week.
December Lottery Raffle
Are you able to help sell a few? Tickets are $5 each, tickets will sell until the end of November or until sold out. Tickets are individually numbered (000-999) Drawing will be daily during December.
