It’s Moonlight Bingo Time!

We have been approved to host Bingo in the MVHS Quad area on Saturday, September 25th. This is one of our largest fundraisers, but it takes everyone’s cooperation to make it successful. We made over $12,000 at our last bingo function, so the earning potential for our program is huge. But, it does take help from everyone. Here are our current needs:

Game Payouts- We have all but $350 covered. If you have a business or would like to sponsor a game, please email me.

Raffle Baskets- Each section is responsible for putting together raffle baskets for bingo night. An email will come out with raffle basket donations this weekend. Please make sure all donations are turned in by Monday, September 20th. The list is as follows:

            Guard- Date Night

            Trumpets- Family Game Night

            Pit/Percussions- Band Competition Survival Kit

            Mellophones- Dinner and a Movie

            Flutes- Fur Babies

            Baritones/Tubas- Coffee, Tea, and Chocolate Lovers

            Saxophones- Great Outdoors

            Clarinets- Italy Themed

Door Prizes- We need about 20-30 door prizes. Items like $5 gift cards, free ice cream or donuts, local business T-Shirts or hats, free haircuts, etc. all make for great door prizes. If you have a small business or know of someone willing to donate prizes, please email me.

Ticket Sales- This is where we make most of our money. Each student is expected to sell at least 10 tickets. Tickets are $20 each and will be sent home with your student on Tuesday, September 7th.

Soda, Water, and Treat Donations-Sign-ups will be sent out soon.

Bingo Night Volunteers-We will need help setting up, running bingo, and tearing down. Look for sign-ups in the next few weeks.

Basket Makers- Volunteers are needed to help assemble raffle baskets. Please email me if you are interested.

Thank you for your help in making this fundraiser a huge success for our program. I am looking forward to a fun event!

CFTC Fundraiser Update

Thank you to all of you who have been collecting clothing donations for our fundraiser. I have recently received an update from my contact at CFTC. Due to the recently updated county and state mandates, CFTC will not be reopening their facility on August 15th as previously planned.

Therefore, at this time, we are unable to collect any donations you may have. Our program truly appreciates all of the efforts that our families share in regards to fundraising. Due to CFTC’s unknown reopening date, we cannot store any items at this time. We do, however, have every intention in rescheduling this fundraiser as soon as restrictions are lifted.

Again, thank you for collecting donations. We completely understand that storage may be difficult, and that other arrangements for these donations may need to be made. If you are able to hold on to any of your donations, we would be grateful. When a new date is announced, we will be allowing adequate time for collection as well.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

CFTC Band Camp Fundraiser Postoponed

Unfortunately, due to the recent pandemic, and COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, the CFTC donation center is closed until mid-August. We are currently working with CFTC to secure a later date, as our original dates were to be held during band camp next week. Thank you to those who have been collecting donations for us, and please be assured that we are looking for an alternative solution to still collect these so that we can continue raising funds for our program. Please look for updated information within the next week.

If you have any further questions, please contact our Ways and Means Co-Chair: Vicki Thompson

Clothes for the Cause 20-21 Kickoff Fundraiser

Happy Summer Everyone!!! I’m sure many of you have been using this time to clean out your closets and such…..hopefully;) For those of you returning this season, CFTC is already familiar to you. We had a fantastic turnout last year (exceeding 5000 lbs.), and decided to continue this fundraiser as a traditional band camp fundraiser and as way to kickoff the new season. New members and families: as you will learn at your first informational meeting, and throughout the season; fundraising is an essential part of our program. What better way to start off….than with a positive outlook of how our program works collectively as a team to reach its financial goals!! This years CFTC drive will be held during the first 3 days of band camp: July 27-29. Bags of donations will be accepted each day; at drop off, pickup, and throughout band camp hours. The CFTC truck will be arriving on the last donation day, July 29 @2pm. Please view the flyers and instructions for additional information. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me: Vicki Thompson, Ways and Means Co-Chair,, or text 760-580-4302. HAPPY CLEANING!!!
