Cosmic Bowling Fundraiser

From Mrs. Bennett:

Friday, April 12th, is our last Cosmic Bowling Fundraiser!

Time: 7-9 PM at Lightning Strikes in Trussville.

Cost: Band students should sell reserved spots to bowl for $10 per person. This includes shoes and ball.

Deadline: All money and names must be turned in by Thursday, April 11th to reserve a spot.

Walk-ins will be able to bowl that night on a first-come, first-served basis and according to lane availability.

Students will make $7 on each spot sold for their student account. We have 320 spots to sell, and they will be sold on a first come first served basis! But if we don't have many pre-sold spots, Lightning Strikes will not hold as many lanes for us. That decision is usually made by Lightning Strikes on Wednesday after finding out how many pre-sold spots we have, so the more spots we pre-sell early in the week the more lanes they will hold for us.

Lightning Strikes has asked that no food or drinks be brought into the bowling alley, as they will be selling concession/food items. This is the way they will make their money that night!

This is a great deal, as it is usually at least $15 for Cosmic Bowling!

Please be sure all names are legible and your form is filled out completely. Turn all money and forms in to Dr. Sargent. The forms are attached.

You can email Mrs. Bennett with your reservation, but until payment is made, you are not guaranteed a spot.
Thank you for your support of the Moody Band! If you have any questions, please feel free to email Mrs. Bennett. Also, please pass this on to anyone else you know of that is not on this list!

Thanks again,
Kim Bennett
