Holiday Cookie Sale

Open to the community! Before the high school holiday Band and Choir music program, homemade cookies and holiday treats are available for purchase.  You can select your own cookies before the program starts or purchase a ‘mystery’ box after the show. We need bakers and people to help out the night of the sale.  This is a 100% profit event for the Music Boosters.

Poinsettia Wreath Sale

  • Middle school students sell fresh poinsettia/wreaths just in time for the holiday decorating. Because the items are picked up directly from Edgewater Greenhouse in Portage, there is no delivery of this fundraiser.
  • Volunteers are needed to chair this fundraiser and to be at Edgewater Greenhouse during the established pick-up times.


  • Plan an evening out with dinner and the Music Booster Live Auction. Outbid your neighbor in the live auction to purchase great items/baskets and help a great cause.  Items typically include donations from businesses, gift baskets, handmade items and so much more.  Your help is needed to collect auction items, prepare food for the event or help out the night of the auction.


Proceeds used for:

  • Trips To New York or Florida (for both band and choir)

  • Summer music camp scholarships

  • $1000 annual college scholarship
