SYS Holiday Wreath Sale Instructions - 2018

The Holiday Wreath Sale is our major fundraising event. Student tuition covers only about half of our operating expenses and we could provide the quality of experience for young musicians that we do without this fundraiser.

The Wreath Sale kicks off at our first rehearsal, September 10, and ends on October 29. Wreath Pick-up Day is Saturday, Nov. 17. SYS students will be selling beautiful, handmade evergreen (traditional round and candy cane-shaped )wreaths crafted especially for the Spokane Youth Symphony at the Calvert Ranch in Montana. Our wreaths are a wonderful value at $25 each, and last throughout the holiday season.  We hope each student will try to sell 10 wreaths.

 

Wreath Sale Packets:

All students receive a Wreath Sale Packet at the first rehearsal of the 2018-2019 season and it includes the following:

- Holiday Wreath Sale Instructions

- Holiday Wreath Sale Posters (2)

- Holiday Wreath Sale Order Tracking Form (printed page to record sales that are then submitted online)

- Holiday Wreath Sale Receipts for Customers

- Envelopes in which to place checks and cash to turn in at each rehearsal of the sale

 

HOW TO SELL WREATHS:

Show the poster to everyone you know! Family, friends, teachers, parents' work associates, and local businesses are all great places to find Spokane Youth Symphony supporters. Share the link to our sale on Facebook! Encourage potential customers to purchase a wreath - either a traditional round wreath or a candy cane wreath is just $25. 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 $110. If they don’t want to purchase a wreath, but do want to support SYS, please encourage community members to make a donation to the Spokane Youth Symphony.
