The Holiday Fundraiser is our major fundraising event during the 2022-23 season. Student tuition covers approximately half of our operating expenses, and we are not able to provide the quality of experience for young musicians that we do without this fundraiser.
The Holiday Fundraiser begins on September 12 and ends on October 31. Wreath orders will be picked up by SYS families on Saturday, November 19 at Custom Strings, 11511 E. Trent and will be delivered to customers during the following week.
We have a new vendor of wreaths and other holiday evergreen décor this year. The Sherwood Forest Farms is our new supplier of the products. We have a website provided by the company to make it possible for your child to share with friends, family, and teachers the information to purchase their holiday evergreen products online. Parents and family members are also welcomed to help their child promote sales. There will NOT be the collecting or turning in to SYS of cash or checks. The sale will be held online only.
There are two categories of sales – local distribution items (there are four products in this category) which SYS families will pick and deliver to customers and direct delivery items (eight products in this category) which are mailed directly to the customer. Both categories of evergreen products are featured on our fundraiser website: https://sherwoodfundraiser.com/spokaneyouthsymphony/products
Students will get credit for sales made when their customer chooses the student’s name from the drop-down list of names at the bottom of “Your Information” requested at Checkout. The SYS office will be able to track all sales as they come in and will provide a list of sales to each student before order pick-up day on November 19. We hope each student/family can plan to sell at least 10 items during the sale which will take place September 12-October 31.
