Re: 2014 Ad Book


  • This fundraiser is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, and it is a great opportunity to earn a substantial amount towards your assessment.

  • Each year funds are needed for staff salaries, show equipment, band scholarships, home competition expenses and the band banquet.

  • We need 100% participation in each fundraiser to meet our obligations and to prepare for our spring trip.

  • Please help us reach our goal of $10,000 for this fundraiser (approximately $150 per student).


The following information/instructions will help you obtain ads, which will be published and distributed at the Home Competition in the New Bedford Marching Band Competition Program Book for October 12, 2014.


PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

  1. Enclosed with this packet is a list of the ads that have been sold in recent years, 5 copies of the ad form (cover, full, half, etc.), and a form for booster ads. You may need to make additional copies of the forms as you sell ads (keep one blank to copy or print one from the band website).

  2. The beginning of the ad listing indicates the ads that were sold in the 2013 Ad Book. If you have sold one previously, it is your responsibility to ask that business again, BEFORE someone else does. SOME OF THE BUSINESSES MAY NO LONGER BE OPEN.

  3. If the business has already been solicited, thank them for their support and apologize for the redundancy.

  4. Ads are NOT transferable…they cannot be passed from one student to another, or used for another student’s assessment.

  5. Return sold ads to Mrs. Souza (508-998-9771) or Mr. Drew.



NEW ADS

  1. Contact businesses (especially where your family does business) such as hairstylists, contractors, service stations, restaurants, banks, plumbers, electricians, car dealers, florists, etc. It might be helpful to look through the business section or yellow pages for ideas.

  2. Show them a copy of last year’s program book so they can see the size and quality of the book. Keep the ad book and forms handy at all times.

  3. Have the advertiser sign the form and indicate the ad size. They must pay you at that time! There is no printing of the ad unless it is paid for – no collecting after publication! MAKE SURE YOU PUT YOUR NAME ON THE FORM AT THE TOP TO ENSURE PROPER CREDIT!

  4. Photos in 1/8 or 1/4 page ads may not produce well. Business cards make the best ad for 1/8 page.

  5. Full-page ads do not reduce down very well to 1/4 or 1/8 page ads. The ad becomes too busy and hard to read.

  6. Your consideration in turning in ads and money as you receive them will be appreciated. Please do NOT hold onto them until the deadline. A great deal of time is involved in getting them ready for the printer. Ads may be dropped off to Mr. Drew or Mrs. Souza during band camp.

  7. THE DEADLINE FOR TURNING IN ALL ADS IS SEPTEMBER 6, 2014!!!

  8. Booster sheets are enclosed for individuals only – not businesses. Get your friends and relatives to sign up for a 1-line gold, silver or bronze ad on the booster’s page.



IF ANY INFORMATION ON THE BUSINESS CARD OR AD BEING SUBMITTED HAS CHANGED (PHONE NUMBER, ADDRESS, WEBSITE, ETC.), PLEASE MAKE THE CHANGES ON THE BACK OF THE AD OR BUSINESS CARD SO THAT THE FRONT OF THE AD OR CARD CAN BE SCANNED CLEANLY!! THE CHANGES CAN THEN BE EDITED INTO THE SCANNED DOCUMENT.


Don’t pass up this opportunity to earn a good part of your student fundraiser account! Band members and their parents should be actively involved in our fundraisers for the 2014– 2015 Band season.


If you have any questions, you can contact Mr. Drew or Mrs. Souza (508-998-9771).

GOOD LUCK!!
