Florida Trip Fundraiser
Pre-order Forms for the Wando Harmony Cards are due on Tuesday, October 29th and will be accepted through Thursday. We are hoping to reach our goal of 250 cards to avoid another fundraiser! These cards are $15 and have a variety of discounts from local businesses that support the band community. The 10% discount at The Instrument Doc, Mellow Mushroom, Brixx Pizza, Papa Murphy's Pizza and more will easily pay for the card. Band families love this card and we would appreciate the support for this fundraiser.
If you would like a card, please complete the Harmony Card Pre-order Form with your $15 (checks made out to Cario Band Boosters) and place in the Harmony Card Bucket in the band room.
Fruit & Pie Fundraisers run through Friday, November 1st
Donate Fruit & Pies to East Cooper Community Outreach (ECCO). We are partnering with ECCO to donate Pies and Fruit for families in need for the holiday season. Your student will receive a portion of the profit, and the customer can take a deduction on their taxes! Please print out the Fall Fundraising Flyer to provide customers with a record of their donation.
If someone wants their order (or a portion of their order) donated to ECCO, please note ECCO on the order form. If you have any questions please email email@example.com.

Corrections were made to some of the dates and times. Reminder: Only one Wando Band Marching performance counts towards your concert attendance. Wando High School games are not a drop off event.
