The Belk Charity Day event will take place on Saturday November 3, 2018 from 6am -10am. Students who wish to sell tickets for the fundraiser will have all raised funds go towards their student account. Any student may join from 10am-12pm on Saturday October 27, 2018 and sell $5 tickets to customers as they enter the store. Mrs. Pacitti will be there to supervise your student. All funds raised from the ticket sales will go to your student’s account.
We have been given an assigned time to pre-sell tickets to the general public this Saturday October 27, 2018 from 10 AM to 12pm (noon) at the Belk location in Marietta off of Dallas Hwy across from the Avenues. Students should wear their casual Orchestra Uniform (polo and khaki pants) if they have it or a Harrison T-shirt and jeans. Feel free to make a poster or bring supplies to make one. If you wish to bring your instrument to display, you may do so but please be mindful of the weather. No one will need to play on October 27. The instruments tend to draw the customer’s attention and help start conversations. If you bring an instrument, you will need a stand for it.
Saturday November 3, 2018 is the day of the Belk Sale and we have been invited to play holiday songs from 10-11am. Students will be able to sign up for times in the orchestra room. Groups must be approved to perform by Mr. Mori for the event. See Mr. Mori if you are interested in performing for the event. You can earn letter points and Tri-M points for this performance. Photos will be taken and sent to participants for use in your portfolio.
Tickets are also available for students to sell to friends and family on their own time. Tickets are $5 and individuals who purchase a ticket will receive “$5 Off” of their first purchase on the day of the November 3 sale in addition to the other discounts and special pricing from Belk. The most popular sale items are the 25%-50% off designer handbags. See the flyer (available in the orchestra room) for a complete list of sales. The first 100 customers in each Belk store on November 3 will receive a free gift card valued anywhere from $5-$1,500!
Mrs. Pacitti will be in class this week to hand out tickets to interested students to sell to family and friends. Parents should discuss with their students in advance how many tickets they wish to try and sell. Money from the sale of tickets should be placed in the black box Clearly Marked with the student’s name and “Belk Charity Fundraiser”. Unsold tickets should be returned in a clearly marked envelope to the black box as well.
We hope to see you on October 27 to sell tickets and on November 3 to join us for the sale and share Holiday Music with the community. We look forward to seeing you at Belk!
