Citrus & Cheesecake Fundraiser

The 2013 Edison Bands & Guard Citrus & Cheesecake Fundraiser has officially begun. All students should have received their sales package.

Sale orders MUST BE turned in by November 8, 2013. On-line orders will be accepted through November 10, 2013. The orders will arrive in mid-December just in time for the Holiday Season! Fruits are picked and shipped the same day from Florida and we have over six flavors of cheesecakes (in 1 lb & 2 lbs selections) available to order. We have worked with the vendors in the past and the quality of the goods have been excellent. This is a great opportunity to sell quality products to family/friends/co-workers/neighbors, etc.

An important change to note for this year, because of new IRS rules, is that all proceeds will go to the EBPO account and not to your child’s individual band account. Remember, the Band still benefits from the fundraiser!

There will be prizes awarded to the Top 3 Sellers!

Online orders are available for out of town families & friends where they can order and have deliveries sent directly. https://www.floridaindianrivergroves.com/orderFundraising_pre11.asp?OrgId=973189&PreID=’yes’

Spirit Night, Thursday, October 24, 2013 at Uno Chicago Grill

Just another friendly reminder that the next Edison Band Parent’s Organization (EBPO) Spirit Night is Thursday, October 24 at Uno Chicago Grill in Kingstowne.  In case you’re wondering what a Spirit Night is, it’s a fundraiser supporting the Edison Band programs during which a local restaurant offers to donate a percentage of an evening’s revenue to the EBPO.  So give your kitchen a rest and support your child’s band activities by printing the attached flyer and enjoying an evening out at Uno.
