Cabaret Night Raffle Tickets
On Saturday, February 13, the Lisle Junior High Jazz Bands and the Lisle Senior High Jazz Bands will perform an evening of Big Band jazz at our annual Cabaret Night. This is our program’s biggest fundraiser of the year. To help raise funds, the students received a stack of blue raffle tickets in band. These tickets are for the Cabaret Night Grand Raffle and we ask that they do their best to sell the entire stack of tickets. They should not go door to door- simply selling them to family and friends will suffice. There are some very cool prizes to be won in the grand raffle and you do not have to be present at Cabaret Night to win a prize. The big prizes are $300 cash, $400 to spend at Quinlan and Fabish, an overnight stay at the Oakbrook Hills Resort, and a fitbit. These tickets help raise funds for our band program for music, scholarships, clinics, and equipment.
The raffle tickets are $1 each but can also be sold in bulk for discounts- 6 tickets for $5, 12 tickets for $10, for all 25 tickets for $20. When the studentss sell a ticket to someone, that person should write their name, address, and phone number on the blue ticket and return it to the student along with the payment. Students will turn in all sold and unsold tickets with payment by Wednesday, February 10th.
