UPDATE ON FOSCKO FUNDRAISING AND OTHER INFO….
Hello Shorecrest and Kellogg Orchestra families and friends-
We have one Fundraiser in the books for this season! The Goodwill “Fill the Truck” fundraiser held on September 21st was a great success! FOSCKO earned $900 which will help in funding scholarships for the Shorecrest HS upcoming trip to California.
We have another fundraiser coming up, but we need your help! On December 15th 2019, we would like to host a MOD Pizza fundraiser. In order for MOD to confirm our spot on December 15th we need at least 20 participants to confirm by 12/12/19. You can easily confirm by clicking the Groupraise link below.
This from MOD:
“To make this meal happen, you need at least 20 RSVP commitments to eat on your meal page by December 12 or the meal will be cancelled.”
We will have flyers and more information on our web page www.foscko.org when MOD confirms our event….stay tuned and spread the word. A MOD flyer or saying “I want my meal to go to FOSCKO” will be required for the orchestras to receive credit on the day of the event.
As the end of 2019 approaches and you’re considering your tax deductible donations for the year, please keep in mind your students’ orchestras. It’s so easy to make a tax deductible donation at www.foscko.org via PayPal by clicking on the DONATE button on our homepage, if you’d prefer to write a check and send it in with your student that works too. Please make any checks out to FOSCKO. FOSCKO is a registered 501c3 and our tax ID number is on the homepage of our website. You can earmark your funds for trip scholarships or trip expenses by indicating how you would like your funds distributed in the memo line.
Last but not least, FOSCKO will again be hosting concessions at all of the concerts this year. If you and/or your student are able to help man the concessions stand please contact Sara Sokolowski at firstname.lastname@example.org or simply sign up via this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E094FAAAE2DA4FF2-orchestra
AND if you’d like to make a donation at the concerts you will receive a free mug with donations of $20 or more.
We’ve already received some incredible donations towards trip scholarships this year and will be offering two scholarships to Kellogg students for summer orchestra camp at the end of the year. We thank you for your continued support on behalf of all of the Orchestra Students at Shorecrest and Kellogg.
Beth Isbell, FOSCKO President
