LCPAA Winter Fundraiser Kickoff

What makes band, show choir, winter guard, theater, and other arts events work? Lots of hard work, blood sweat and tears, and of course, money. To help offset the costs of these activities, there are a number of fund raising opportunities that have had a history of success. With your efforts and participation, these events will be successful this year too! This year, the PA department will be going to Disney. The following fundraisers can help students earn money towards their performing arts fees. Once fees are paid in full, any funds raised can go towards the Disney trip.

Upcoming events include:

  • Yankee Candle (Online through January)
  • Poinsettias & Succulents
  • Sundaes Ice Cream & Coffee
  • Toffee


Fundraiser Kick-off Info
