FUNDRAISERS

HOW CAN MY STUDENT RAISE MONEY TO PAY FOR BAND?
Bandstanders offers “general fundraising events” that benefit everyone in the band by reducing average band fees. “General fundraising events” include our Fall and Spring Flea Markets, Cardinal Tickets (family and friends), Spirit Festival (Auction and Food Booth), Close the Kitchen Restaurant Nights, and DVD sales.  The more participation we get from families for these events, the more the overall band fee is reduced. Bandstanders also offers “individual fundraising opportunities” to assist band students and their families in paying annual band fees. Through “individual fundraising events” families have the opportunity to earn income to help pay future band fees. 

GENERAL FUNDRAISERS * all proceeds of general fundraisers are credited to the general fund and benefit the entire program *
♦ Flea Markets (Spring & Fall) – held biannually in May and September each year, this is our single largest fundraising effort. Parent and student volunteers are needed in droves to staff these events. More than 150+ vendors set-up in the LHS Commons parking lot twice a year, and the Band has a Treasure Booth stocked with garage sale items donated by band families and friends… the bargains are legendary!  Also includes concession stand and music from student ensembles performing throughout the day!
♦ Logo Wear  Logo wear is a great way to display your Lindbergh Band spirit while helping the Bandstanders organization at the same time. We offer a variety of warm and cool weather options. We also have specialty items for Band Moms, Alumni, and more. Check it out! 
♦ Restaurant Nights  Close the kitchen and take the whole family out for a meal and the band will receive a percentage of the sales! What could be better or easier? Some events will require a flyer, which will be posted on the calendar. Bon Appétit!!!
♦ Special Events  Whenever possible, Bandstanders teams up with local businesses and events to promote ‘can’t miss’ opportunities which will be announced on the Latest News panel when available.

♦ Ticket Sales – The Lindbergh Marching Band performs annually at a Cardinals Game and tickets are sold at a discounted price to friends and family as a fundraiser. Additionally, Bandstanders may partner from time to time with the Rams and Blues on select games as part of sponsored “Lindbergh Day” programs. 


INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISERS * proceeds vary - Through “individual fundraising events” families have the opportunity to earn income that can subsequently be used to pay future band fees. Individual fundraisers offer students the opportunity to sell a particular product for a suggested price, and the student will pay the band for the cost of the product. The profit/income the student receives from the sale is personal income per the IRS tax code and may be taxable. Bandstanders also retains a small profit from these fundraisers (around 10% of the student profit) which is included in the product cost. *


♦ Bandwiches - Our DELICIOUS Bandwiches are made fresh the day of delivery. We use the finest meats and cheeses, custom bakery rolls, and fresh lettuce & tomatoes. These bandwiches are 18″ long and packed full of delicious ham, salami, turkey, and two cheeses. They can be ordered on white or wheat roll and with or without lettuce and tomato. The sandwiches are hand-made and hand-delivered by the Band Members and their parents under strict quality assurance and health safety guidelines.
♦ Bundtlets - Partnering with our friends at the Nothing bundt Cakes bakery, these delicious single serving bundt cakes are topped with delicious cream cheese icing.
♦ Gift Cards – Available monthly throughout the school year, Bandstanders families sell gift cards for local and national stores and restaurants. This is a great fundraiser because there are no hidden costs — Gift Cards are sold for a rebated purchase price. While our Gift Card offerings vary each month, local grocery store cards are always included (Dierbergs and Shop-n-Save) in $25 and $100 amounts. Schnucks participates via eScrip, and can be used year round.
♦ Plant Sale - Each spring Bandstanders partners with N. G. Heimos Greenhouses to offer a variety of quality hanging baskets, planters and Knock-out roses!

♦ Trivia Night – 2019 DETAILS COMING SOON!  An event typically held during Spring semester. Organized and operated entirely by Bandstander parents and students, this is a FUN night for all!  Silent auction, 50/50 raffle and round sponsorship proceeds go towards general fundraising, while individual families can earn income for table sales after costs. Silent Auction donations are solicited from the community and are accepted at any time.
