Butter Braid is known for its delicious homemade taste and variety. The Butter Braid fundraiser is our first of the year. Butter Braid order forms will go home with your music student on their first day of school. All music students have until Wednesday, September 3, to sell as many Butter Braid coffeecakes as they can to put some funds in their Student Account.

No one has to participate in this fundraiser, however it is a great opportunity for music students to earn money. For every $13 frozen braided pastry dough they sell, $5.20 will be deposited into the selling student’s account. Remember, the funds in your student’s account can be used for any personal music-related expenses, including the Spring Break Trip. If you need more order forms, you can download and print the order form below.  Please make sure to collect payment at the time of order, write the students name and phone number on the order form and turn all money/checks in with the order to your student’s director.

You can pick up your Butter Braid orders on Tuesday, September 16 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM in the RMHS back cafeteria. If you have any questions or you’re unable to pick up your order, please e-mail Karina Corradi at to make other arrangements since we don’t have facilities to store them.
