Corporate Sponsorships Needed

Thank you to the new sponsors, New Doors Real Estate, Legacy Consulting Group, Dr. Ann Pollock & Rouse Companies! We raised an additional $2,600 last week! Now we only need an additional $12,400 in sponsorships from community businesses and individuals.  If you have a contact or know of anyone that may be interested in donating to the outstanding program, please email contact information to lbasponsor@gmail.com. 

Lafayette Invitational Contest

The 2022 Invitational is being held on Sept. 17th.  We will be hosting this contest and many bands will be in attendance.  This is a great fundraiser for the band but we will need volunteers for the day to be a success!  The planning committee is working hard to set up all of the logistics.  Be on the lookout for sign-ups in the near future.

The Lafayette Band Webpage is already updated with some of the details.  That day, we will have a program for all attendees and you can feature your student or your business in the program!  Students love this!

Below are the links if you would like to take out an ad!  You can also find the links on the main web page. Due dates for forms and payments are listed at the bottom of the forms.

Fundraising News

Mattress Fundraiser
Sunday, August 21st from 11am-4pm
Lafayette Cafeteria


The Mattress Fundraiser is less than 2 weeks away! We will have a mattress showroom with 20-22 floor models set up at Lafayette HS on Sunday,  August 21st from 11am-4pm.  All beds are available in all sizes, brand new, made to order, and come with factory warranties.  In addition, we will have sheets, pillows, mattress protectors, weighted blankest, bean bag chair/bed and even adjustable power bases!!!  All sales benefit the Band Program!


This event has been VERY successful for us and for thousands of school districts all over the country, for over 10 years!


We are very excited about this fundraiser for many reasons:
• The kids do not have to sell anything!
• The kids do not have to collect money or be responsible for distribution!
• We will raise several thousand dollars in a one-day event!
• This costs us nothing!
• The company runs the event! (
• The mattresses are brand name and priced right just for us!
• The kids can earn “personal referral” incentives!


EACH student is responsible to:
• Find at least one referral to come in and check out the sale. (Did you realize 1 in 10 families buy a new mattress every year? – BE SURE TO TALK TO AT LEAST TEN FAMILIES!)
• Hand out your referral flyers to people you know.
• Print your name on the coupon at the bottom, so you get credit!
• Be at the school on Sunday, August 22, 2021 to help promote the event and have FUN!


Sale Info:
• Sunday, August 21, 2022, the cafeteria.
• 11am to 4pm.

Our contribution:
• PLEASE help spread the word! Tell your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers!

It is a pleasure to be able to find a way to help our students while providing great value to our community. We appreciate your support and hope to see you on Sunday, August 21, 2022.


Below is a link to the event that can be forwarded to friends and family. To be successful, each family is asked to forward to 10 people!
