SNAP! RAISE 2019 – Our FALL FUNDRAISER
(In place of cheese and sausage)
What an amazing weekend! So proud of our kids’ performance this weekend in Johnson City! We are also doing very well with Snap! Raise- we currently have more than $22,000! We are well on our way to meeting our goal!!! Our goal is $26,000. There are only 10 days left to donate, and time is rushing by on our way to State.
Congratulations to the Baritone Section– they won the first week incentive of TIME IN THE TOWER! Baritones- we will plan to have you spend your 10 minutes each in the tower on Tuesday when we return to practice.
We will plan to have our Week 2 Incentive: “OPT OUT of Running” and enjoy a snack on either Thursday or Friday of practice. Students who have met one or more of the following requirements will be invited to participate:
-entered 20 valid emails (with no more than 5 bouncing)
-earned more than $150 in this campaign
-had 3 or more donations
Please see Jennie Hayes or email at email@example.com or text at (859) 229-9376 if you are unsure if you qualify or if you have any questions.
Here are the INSTRUCTIONS for creating/logging into your Snap! Raise account. Please do not create another account if you already have one.
Here are the answers to frequently asked questions:
–Can I donate in a check form instead of online? I have relatives that want to donate but don’t have PayPal? Yes, place the donation in the black box on the wall in the band room with your child’s name in the memo line or have them mail it to:
Lafayette Band Association
PO Box 910450
Lexington, KY 40591-0450
**Please make all checks out to LBA. Checks donated like this WILL NOT go through the Snap! Raise system, so they will not be counted by Snap! Raise toward your child’s participation. If your child gets 1 donation of $20 or more in the Snap! Raise system then they are counted as participating. The higher participation our kids have with Snap! Raise, the more money we get to keep. We keep 70% if our participation is below 70%. If our participation is above 70%, then we will keep 77% of all donations. Currently we are at 67% participation.
-How do I opt out of this fundraiser? Easy- send in a check made out to LBA for our suggested donation amount of $75.
-Can I still put in emails? What if we don’t have all 20 emails? Yes, you can still enter emails into the system. Every email counts. Have your child do the best they can. Click this link to get INSTRUCTIONS on how to add emails. They can also send out texts- which are highly effective. See the instructions link for how to log on, then the system will prompt you to send texts.
-What are the remaining PRIZES for Snap! Raise:
WEEK 3 Incentive: Our plan is to supplement one meal of the winning Section at State. Likely the supplement would be 2 trays of Chick-fil-A nuggets and Chick-fil-A sauce, soda, and some form of dessert. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
INDIVIDUAL PRIZES: The top dollar amount recipient will receive $50 cash, 2nd place will receive $25 cash, and 3rd place will receive $15 cash.
