The Holiday Wreath Sale is our major fundraising event. Student tuition covers approximately one-half of our organizational operating expenses and we could not do what we do without this fundraiser. The Wreath Sale kicks off at our first rehearsal, September 11, with sales closing on October 23. Wreaths will be ready for pickup on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. They are beautiful, handmade evergreen wreaths crafted especially for the Spokane Youth Symphony at the Calvert Ranch in Montana. Our wreaths are a wonderful value at $22 each and last throughout the holiday season. Their affordable price makes it possible for everyone to help support the Spokane Youth Symphony.
Wreath Sale Packets:
All students receive a Wreath Sale Packet at the first rehearsal of the 2017-18 season and it includes the following:
- Holiday Wreath Sale Instructions
- Holiday Wreath Sale Posterand Bookmarks to share with potential customers
- Holiday Wreath Sale Order Tracking Form (Hard Copy)
- Holiday Wreath Sale Receipts for Customers
HOW TO SELL WREATHS:
Share the poster and bookmarks with everyone you know! Family, friends, teachers, parents' work associates, and local businesses are all great places to find Spokane Youth Symphony supporters. Encourage potential customers to purchase a wreath - either a traditional round wreath or a candy cane wreath is just $22! Customers can also get a great deal if they buy more than one. If your customer buys a total of 5 wreaths on a single order, they will get all 5 for the discounted price of $100.

Step 1: SELL WREATHS
Collect cash or check from your customer and give them a receipt. (Checks payable to Spokane Youth Symphony)
Step 2: FILL OUT THE TRACKING FORMS, BOTH THE HARD COPY AND THE ONLINE TRACKING FORM
