2012–2013 PANTHER BAND FUNDRAISING OVERVIEW

Throughout the year the fundraising team seeks opportunities to generate funds that benefit both the Panther Band/Guard program and its students.  If you have questions regarding any fundraising activity or would like to assist with any fundraising event, please contact Lisa Vara at ocbandfundraising@yahoo.com.

Fundraising Terminology:

General Fundraisers are typically conducted to generate funds to benefit the Band Program in order to keep costs and fees down, and simultaneously provide the valuable resources that are essential to making this program so great!

Through the support of great parents, friends and families, events such as Spirit Nights, Hot Dog Howdy, Jazz’n with Santa Arts & Craft Show, Holiday Silent Auction, Concerts, Texas Color Guard Circuit (TCGC) and many more, provide the necessary benefits that keep this program strong.

Individual Student Fundraisers are opportunities for the student to earn credit towards items such as student’s fees, trips or band banquet.  Opportunities for individual student fundraisers are scheduled throughout the year and will be announced during booster meetings and posted at http://thepantherband.com website.  For your convenience, we have created shortcuts to fundraisers via this FUNDRAISERS portal.  Here you will find detailed information about fundraising events.

Following is a schedule to-date.
