BONUS RAFFLE TICKET OPPORTUNITY!!
In class this week we have created our profiles, and shown students how to load potential supporters emails. We will run our campaign for the entire month of October. Students and families may share their child's profile via social media, email, and text!
We would like all students to participate, and our hope is that each student is able to raise $125. If you would like to opt out by making a donation of $125 payments can be made via Charms using the ¨Shopping Cart¨ icon, or by sending a check made out to Scoggins MS Band Booster Club.
Things parents should know about our fundraiser on FanAngel:
- FanAngel uses the industry's most secure privacy and protection standards. Email addresses and phone numbers are never shared or sold.
- FanAngel’s automation system will send supporters up to three reminders after launch: one after 3 days, one after 10 days, and lastly 4 days prior to the end of the campaign. When the supporter has donated, they will not receive additional reminders. Please know that the supporter has the ability to unsubscribe at any time.
