December Fundraising

 

 

It is that time of year again - cold weather, frosted windshields and snow!  Stay warm with our next fundraiser Prestogeorge Coffee, Tea and Biscotti.  Prestogeorge is Pittsburgh's oldest legal gourmet coffee shop and you will not be disappointed (or under-caffeinated)!  Students will earn 40% of their total sales towards their Disney Trip - $4 for each bag of coffee or tea sold and $2 for each bag of biscotti.

 

Click for Printable copies of the Prestogeorge FLYER and ORDER FORM.   Orders are due on Tuesday, January 3 (which is the first day back to school from Winter Break) and will be delivered on Thursday, January 19th.

 


 

GIANT EAGLE GIFT CARD FUNDRAISING: $50 Giant Eagle gift cards may be purchased at face value from the NADBP and have a 5% rebate back to your student's band fees or trip. Gift cards may even be used to purchase gift cards for other retailers from Giant Eagle.  If you would like to purchase gift cards, please email nadbp.executivevp@gmail.com to arrange to purchase any day after band practice.

 

Checks may be made payable to NADBP with your student's name in the memo line.



 

ARAMARK FUNDRAISING: The NADBP participates in the the Aramark Fundraising program for non-profit organizations.  Parents and students age 16 and older may sign up to work in a concession stand at Heinz Field during Steelers and Pitt football game and select other events held at Acrisure/Heinz Field.  No prior experience is required but participants age 18 and older may need to complete the Pennsylvania Responsible Alcohol Management Program ("Ramp").  Ramp training is available online.  Aramark contributes $120 - $200 per person, per game worked to offset the student's band fees and trip costs.  Aramark fundraising opportunities are available between August and early January. CLICK HERE for additional information about the Aramark Fundraising Program and how to sign up.  We can take new participants at any time during the football season.

 

Online RAMP Training:  Any Aramark participant who is 18+ must complete the PA Responsible Alcohol Management Program (RAMP) in order to participate. If you were not able to attend the in-person training on 8/3, Ramp Training is available online for $10 using the link below. Please use the License ID 48228 when prompted and send a copy of your completed RAMP training to NADBP.Aramark@gmail.com
