JAZZ IN THE MEADOWS PROGRAM AD SALES

Jazz in the Meadows is the Rolling Meadows Music Boosters biggest fundraiser and we have opened the window to sell program ad space in this year’s directory.

This is a great way to get your businesses name in front of thousands of guests, students and community members. When you buy ad space, your also support the music program and the many different activities the RMHS Music Boosters puts on through-out the school year.

SHOUT-OUTS are also available in the program. For just $10, you get about 225 characters to cheer on your student or favorite band.

Additionally, students who sell ads and make sure that they have their names included on the completed sales sheet, earn credit that will be deposited into student accounts that can be applied towards their school-affiliated music expenses. A 10% credit of the ad value will be credited upon final processing of all ad payments.

Details and information about ad sizes and prices can be found in the attached sales flyer. The deadline for ad reservations is Monday, January 29, 2018.

It is crunch time and we still have 30 essential time spots that we really need to have volunteers filling by Friday, if at all possible.
Here is where you can still help:
