WiddyUp Fundraiser

Our first fundraiser of the year is off and running!!! We have already raised over $2,000! During on-boarding on Friday we had to battle less than stellar internet service. Some students my still be in the process of downloading our videos from Dropbox and then uploading them into their WiddyUp dashboard. If your family needs help finalizing set up this weekend please reach out. Our Way and Means Committee Chair, Kathryn Evans, is more than happy to help! (wolfbandfundraising@gmail.com) Every student who comes to rehearsal Monday morning with six or more contacts loaded will get a flying frog toy. Everyone that comes with at least one donation gets a donut. And the student who has the most contacts loaded by Monday morning takes home a $20 Chick fil A giftcard!
