For the 16th consecutive year; Anthony Wayne Band Boosters will be sponsoring its fall fundraiser: the Entertainment Book Sale. The fundraiser includes all three schools, from beginning year 5th grade students through 12th grade band students.
This year’s Entertainment campaign will kick off on Wednesday, August 29th through Friday Aug 31st.
The sale will run for approximately 3 weeks with an order turn in date of Tuesday September 25, 2012.
During the sale, each student will receive one Entertainment Book valued at $30. You are responsible for purchasing, selling, or returning this book in good condition. The book you will be given will be your sample book that each student will use to show to prospective customers during the three week fundraising period.
Each student will have a “Turn-In Envelope” which will be used to take orders and collect money. All money should be collected when orders are taken! If you need additional envelopes please see your band instructor as they will have extra ones available.
All envelopes with book orders and money are to be turned in on Tuesday September 25th in the High School Cafeteria from 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm.
This is the only day you can turn in your money and receive books so put Tuesday September 25th on your calendar! At that time you will receive the Entertainment books you’ve taken orders and collected money for.
Once you receive your books you can then deliver them to your customers. You must also turn in your sample book if you have not sold it on this date as it must be returned to the Entertainment Company. If your sample book is returned damaged you will be responsible for the cost of the book which is $30, so please take extreme care with your book!
As you are taking orders for your book, please let your customer know that checks and cash are both accepted. Checks should be made payable to AWBB.
The Entertainment Discount Book is available for almost any city. Out of Town books are priced differently for each city so check the insert for the cost. There will be a separate order form in your Entertainment Kit for out of town orders. You can also purchase books on line at Entertainment’s website. Please see the attached insert in your kit for details. The Anthony Wayne group I.D. for purchasing on line is #369322.
As an incentive for selling, the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters and the Entertainment Company, will be giving away prizes totaling over $1,100! There will also be (6) $50 cash drawings; two for each school where students selling (3) or more books will be automatically entered to win. In addition to the drawings, at the end of the sale, there will be prizes awarded to the top sellers with the overall top seller receiving a $150 gift card!
The Entertainment Book has many great coupons for local stores and restaurants, and has become one of the Anthony Wayne Band’s most successful fundraisers. It represents a significant amount of the band booster’s budget and provides additional funds used for trips, awards, the purchase of instruments, band uniforms, and other items.
On behalf of the Anthony Wayne Band Boosters, we would like to thank you for supporting this important fundraiser. We appreciate your dedication and support of the Anthony Wayne Marching Generals and look forward to a successful year!
