Boy's Shirt Exchange

Orchestra boys are required to wear pleated wing tip tuxedo shirts during their performances. The average shirt is only worn twice a year! The shirt typically costs $30.00.

Since our boys grow quickly, shirts are purchased almost every year. This venue will give you an opportunity to sell, buy, or donate a gently used shirt! If you are selling the shirt, list the price and size including youth/adult size. If you find a shirt you want, please contact the parent below to make the transaction. ONCE YOU'VE SOLD YOUR SHIRT, EDIT YOUR ENTRY AS SOLD.

If you are donating a shirt to the Lovejoy Booster Club, please send the shirt to your Orchestra teacher and I will make them available on this site. Your child will receive a form for your donation.

Thanks for participating in recycling our shirts!
