On Saturday September 27, the Hanford Music Association will run the annual “Boost Your Band Day” fundraiser. This is one of the big fundraisers for the music booster group and is a required activity for your band student. Many band programs across the country run this type of fundraiser in their communities on a September Saturday.
We need 25 parents to drive music students to neighborhoods within the Hanford HS boundary. Students will go door-to-door in groups to share our performance schedule for the year and ask for donations. The neighborhoods include current Hanford families, alumni families, and future Falcons. The neighborhoods we visit have always been very generous in their support of Hanford music. To support this event as a driver, go to this SignupGenius page: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b44a4ae2babfe3-boost.
If you plan to drive, you will need to complete the RSD Volunteer Application form and the Driver Checklist form. You can download those forms at these links: for the Volunteer application, http://www.rsd.edu/files/media/hvolunteerapplication.pdf ; and for the Driver Checklist, https://www.charmsoffice.com/charms/SchoolFilesNew/HanfordHSM/public/RSD%20volunteer%20driver%208131F.pdf. Please complete these forms and bring them to either the Hanford High main office or the RSD office on Snow Street. Two weeks are needed for processing, so we would appreciate your quick response in submitting these forms.
Thank you in advance for your support of this important fundraising event!
