Popcorn Money is Now Past Due and Will Be Added to Balances

Popcorn money was due last Friday.

Any money not turned in will be charged to your Charms account. When the money is charged to the Charms account, you will not receive any profits for that...but will be charged the full value of the popcorn (at $2 per bag).

Remember to Make Your Payment Plan Payments

If you setup a payment plan on shopping day, please make sure that you stay on top of your agreement. Our program cannot function if everyone does not take care of their financial obligations.

Earn Money for Your Band Fees, Trip Payments, and Lessons

Did you know that you can work shifts at the UT Erwin Center to earn money for your fees, trip payments, and lessons? Each shift pays $35 to $75 per person depending on the event and business.

There are always shifts available and we are already needing people to work!

You can sign up using this link.
