Manna CardsCheesecakeIt’s the time of year for two great fundraisers – Manna Gift Cards and Cheesecake Sale! Both fundraisers are running now and have the same deadlines. Remember, all of the money raised goes directly into the student’s account to pay for things like music trips, private lessons, music equipment, etc.

Manna is a fundraiser that provides gift cards and certificates from local and national retailers. They are the same gift cards available in stores. National retailers include Wal-Mart, Jewel, Dominick’s, JCPenney, Kohl’s, Best Buy, Shell, Speedway, Starbucks, Home Depot, and Subway all participate in the program, along with hundreds of others.

Put your everyday shopping dollars to work. Earn money for the student’s account without spending anything additional. Purchase gift cards from stores that participate in The Manna Group program. Grocery, gasoline, clothing, entertainment, and household goods can be purchased. Manna gift cards make great gifts for the holiday season (and for those who have winter birthdays, or anniversaries, or house-warming parties, or …). Every purchase earns a percentage of the purchase price for your student account. (The order form can change slightly from month to month, especially the percentages that are awarded. The students receive the percentages that are in effect when the order is placed.)

The Cheesecakes are from Gourmet’s Delight Inc., and have been extremely popular in past sales. You may have tasted the delicious samples at the Fall Concert. For each cheesecake purchased, $6 will go into the students account.

Separate checks for each fundraiser should be made out to RMHS Music Boosters. Please note that there are also two turn-in and delivery dates, so turn in the correct form for each order. Please return the order forms to Mr. Buti or Mr. Carroll by the deadline.

You can pick up your gift card orders in the Commons when you pick up your cheesecake orders.
