FUNDRAISING DEADLINES APRIL 1ST

The Covid-19 Pandemic is having a tremendous impact on our budget. We are asking that every student help by participating in fundraising opportunities providing through the production. We will be unable to do our door-to-door campaign for the second year in a row (although a virtual option is forthcoming).


There are three options for participating in our fundraising. We kindly ask that all students participate in at least 1 option. If you have difficulty with fundraising, please reach out to anthony.cimino-johnson@lcps.org as soon as possible.


1. OUTDOOR FLOWER SALES - These flowers are beautiful. Information is forthcoming. Please sell 3 Flats of Flowers. Flowers are now on sale through our website at www.rockridgeperformingarts.org


2. DONOR/ADVERTISEMENT - Please secure a donor or advertiser for a minimum of $75.


3. DONATE A $75 Opt-Out Fee - Paid at the time of registration.


We appreciate all of your support in these challenging times.
