Dear Cast, Crew, and Parents,
With only a week remaining until the North Hills Drama Club's production of "Pride and Prejudice," there are many fundraising opportunities coming up that will help defer the costs of this play and the spring musical, "Dames at Sea."
We need your help to capitalize on these opportunities and support the Drama Club!
Here is a quick overview of what's coming up, and the support we will need from the cast and crew families:
Lottery ticket gift basket donations. Please send at least a $1 lottery scratch-off ticket with your cast or crew member to one of the two dress rehearsals this weekend. (Larger donations are welcome.) These tickets will be used to assemble a lottery ticket gift basket that will be raffled off in the lobby, with tickets sold during every performance. Gift basket raffles represent a huge fundraising source! Attached is a letter explaining this basket from Heather Margo, who is doing an amazing job of coordinating the gift baskets this year.
Cookie donations for the lobby at every show. We ask that every cast and crew family bring 2 dozen cookies to the lobby on their assigned date (see attached list). These cookies will be offered to audience members at intermission for a suggested cash donation. Again, this is an important fundraiser and would not be possible without the generosity of our cast and crew families. We will send daily reminders because we know it's easy to forget your assigned day during the busy show weekend.
TGI Friday's restaurant fundraiser, Friday, November 10. The cast and crew traditionally go to TGI Friday's after the Friday night performance. We have scheduled a fundraiser that day so 20 percent of our sales go directly to the North Hills Drama Club! Please bring the attached flyer; we will also have coupons on site at the restaurant. Please encourage your family and friends to also visit TGI Friday's that day and use the flyer to donate a portion of their check.
Chipotle restaurant fundraiser, Tuesday, November 14. We are also hosting a fundraiser at the Chipotle at 4861 McKnight Road on Tuesday, November 14, between 4:00 and 8:00 pm. 50 percent of our sales go directly to the Drama Club! You can bring the attached flyer or simply tell the cashier that you are supporting the North Hills Drama Club fundraiser. Again, please encourage your family and friends to visit Chipotle that day to support the club.
Thanks in advance for your support over the next couple of weeks. The Drama Club would not be successful without your efforts. If you have any other fundraising ideas, please share them with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always looking for new ideas!
