San Leandro, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
Middle school band and choir students in Beavercreek, Ohio, demonstrated teamwork with an Otis Spunkmeyer® frozen cookie dough fundraiser, allowing their music program to succeed in unexpected ways.
With 65 percent participation, each student who took part in the fundraiser sold an average of 12 items. In their first joint fundraiser, students and families raised $55,000 to support the music programs in just two short weeks, and this year, the students surpassed their previous goals by selling more than $150,000 worth of product, earning the program more than $60,000.
“Like many music programs, we get almost no funding from the school district and rely heavily on student-driven fundraising to buy instruments, music, supplies for classes, and equipment,” said Matthew Frost, band teacher and fundraising coordinator at Beavercreek Middle School. “This year, the kids earned more than $60,000, and despite the odds, our music programs are actually growing thanks in part to the success we have had fundraising with Otis Spunkmeyer!”
The efficiency and organization of the Otis Spunkmeyer Fundraising package enabled the two middle school music programs to work in tandem and make the most of their only fundraiser of the year. Although running a single fundraising campaign across two school programs presented some obstacles, the Otis Spunkmeyer fundraiser gave students the opportunity to play a real role in keeping the music programs that they love thriving.
