Hello REV Band Families:

Just a reminder that this fundraiser IS happening at the end of December and we will need 20 volunteers per day to help make this a success.

Please send me an email and let me know if you are interested, what days you can work and how many people you will bring with you.
Also, please let me know if you are interested in taking a lead position for Dec. 31stJan. 1, and Jan. 2.

Please read on for more detail.

KEEP IN MIND: You can earn $50-$75 per day. That money goes directly towards your student fair share. Multiply that times as many people as you can bring to work in your students name.
This fundraiser will entail selling concessions to the attendees of Fan Fest 2013 on December 28, 29, 30 and 31, the Rose Parade – January 1st, 2014 and the Post Parade Festivities on January 2nd, 2014.
What are Fan Fest and the Post Parade Festivities?
I’m glad you asked. Fan Fest involves all the events leading up to the Rose Parade in lovely Pasadena, California. That includes Band Fest and float building at the Rose Bowl.
The post parade festivities will be the float viewing after the parade at Pasadena High School.
What are the specifications?
  • We have been given 6 concession selling days in a high traffic location for this event.
    • December 28, 29, 30 and 31, 2013 and January 1 & 2, 2014
  • The hours for the event are as follows:
    • Sat, Dec 28 - 8:00to 6:00
    • Sun, Dec 29 - 8:00to 6:00
    • Mon, Dec 30 - 8:00 to 6:00
    • Tues, Dec 31 - 8:00 to 3:00
    • Tues, Dec 31 - 3:00- Training for Post Parade events for the Leader ONLY -(mandatory)
    • Wed, Jan 1 - 9:00 to6:30
    • Thurs, Jan 2 - 7:00 to6:00 - BEST profit day
Location: Pasadena, California
Our organization is required to send 20 people per day to man the stations.
  • Those 20 people are not limited to band students and/or parents of band students. The 20 for the day can be made up of band students, parents and any other family members or friends who are interested in helping your band student earn money towards their fair share.
  • All participants must be at least 15 years old.
This is not a REV High School Event
  • Students will need to accompany a responsible adult, not necessarily the parent.
  • A contract will be drawn up and each person is responsible for keeping a copy of it with them at all times.
Estimate of profit per person is $50-$75 per day
  • Volunteers earn 10% sales minus tax for each day.
What do the REV Band Boosters need to make this happen???
  1. We need a Booster or two or three to volunteer to lead this event.
    1. This responsibility may be split because it is a long distance and a lot of days to be available
    2. One leader must be present each day we are scheduled to be at the events to make sure all volunteers arrive for their shifts and handle other leader responsibilities
    3. The lead person may also be in charge of scheduling volunteers for the day
This is a great opportunity for the band and a profitable and fun fundraiser for those families that can use the fair share.
If you are willing to be part of this opportunity please respond back to this email or you can also email Bekky Lee at WAYS.AND.MEANS@REAVBAND.ORG.
Thank You,
Bekky Lee
