Fundraisers, Next Week, and more!
As of this week, we are ready to kick off our fall fundraisers! We have 2 currently in process:
The Ladies spent time during practice to brainstorm businesses to reach out to for sponsorhip for our team. I've asked that each student reach out to at least 20 businesses using the email template in our Google Drive. Parents, please help your daughters out with this as well! If you know of any friends or family that would like to be a sponsor or just donate, now is the time to reach out! Our expenses for competition are generally around $2400 alone, so it's crucial that every student does their very best to help raise funds - especially since the fees were decreased this year by $250/student. We will have check ins on the progress of our outreach over the next few weeks.
2. Coupon Books
The second fundraiser we will begin within the next few weeks is selling coupon books directly through an Austin fundraising company. The books are $25 and more details will be sent out as soon as everything is finalized. Our goal is to have each Lady sell at least 5 books. We will receive 40-50% of the profit and the students will not have collect any money from people - they will direct their buyers to the company's site.
Next week, we will plan on the following schedule. We need a little more time than usual because the game is on a Thursday and a good majority of our practice time this week was, unfortunately, spent on forms and cleaning for pom.
