Dominos Card Fundraiser

We kicked off our annual Dominos Card Band Fundraiser!! 

Slice the Price Domino's Pizza Card

With the card you can buy a large pizza and get a large pizza free!! The best part is you can use the card as many times as you want throughout the year and there is no limit on how many pizzas you can buy and get free. Perfect for parties or meetings. Buy 10 pizzas and get 10 pizzas free!!! Only $10 a card. 

The fundraiser is going to run until Monday May 15th. Money should be turned in to their band director or at the Mandatory Parent meeting at BWHS that day. At that time I will send off all the order forms that are turned in so the cards can get shipped back to me so we can distribute.

IMPORTANT-Students must write "WEST" on any envelopes they drop off at their respective band rooms involving this fundraiser. This will make it easier for me to keep track of everything coming in for BWHS. Turn in order form and all money together.

The profit your child raises will go towards their respective band fees. These fees have not been finalized yet but will be anywhere from $400-$600. 

Incentives for all students who meet the goal of selling 12 cards.
