Fund Raising

Congratulations to your student for helping carry on the proud and excellent tradition of the Dixie Heights High School Marching Band. As we begin a new Marching Band season each year, we are looking forward to keeping our program strong and accessible to all Dixie Height High School, Summit View and Turkeyfoot Middle School students, and as inexpensive as possible to our band student parents, grandparents and guardians. Over the years our bands have served the school as Marching Bands in regional competitions, pep bands at football and basketball games as well as winter activities including Indoor Percussion and Winter Guard; our amazing band members have won many awards, and have traveled the region and nation representing Dixie Heights High School.

To accomplish all this, the bands need an active volunteer forceŚwe need you to get involved! Please come to monthly Band Boosters meetings and volunteer your time to support band activities. Our bands have a tradition of excellence not only because of our students, staff and Director, but because generations of Dixie Heights parents, grandparents and guardians have given their time and energy.

Donĺt miss out on the fun! Please contact any Band Booster representative to learn how you can become involved. Our Band Booster meetings are held monthly during the school year and are typically located in the band room. 


Welcome to Dixie Band!! We are the Fundraising co-chairs for 2013/2014. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any suggestions or questions at the following: Tammy Lawson dixiepitguardmom@gmail.com or Shelley Rigg shelleyrigg@live.com.  Dixie Band could do absolutely NOTHING without the generous help of our volunteers.

Monthly RESTAURANT NIGHTS

 
Eat to make money!! Throughout the year, we partner with restaurants within the Dixie Heights High School area and throughout Kenton County to host "Restaurant Nights" which allow our Band families and friends to enjoy a great meal all while supporting our band. A percentage of all purchases made during these special events is donated to the Dixie Heights Band Booster programs. This is a great way to get out and meet and mingle with the members of our Band Family in a relaxed atmosphere. Watch for announcements on our website, Facebook page, and via Twitter.
 
This year we will be dining with some great local restaurants. When you visit them on our "Restaurant Night" or any time, please thank them for supporting our band.


Here are some of the participating restaurants

Kroger

Greetings, Dixie Band families,

I hope you are enjoying your summer.

The Kroger gift card fundraiser program has gone through a significant
change. The Kroger gift cards no longer pay the band a percentage of
the reloads. The gift cards themselves are still "good," they still
work and the money you've reloaded on them is still there, but the
band doesn't get a portion of the reloads anymore.

The new Kroger fundraiser program is directly tied to your Kroger Plus
card. No more gift cards. It's about the Plus cards now. What you
spend on Kroger groceries automatically pays the band a percentage,
with no extra steps. To participate, you'll have to register your
Plus card number linking it to the Dixie Band.

1. Go to this website by clicking on their logo above:

2. Click on Create an Account.

3. Follow the directions to activate your account through your email address.

4. Login in your account, then:

a. Click Community Rewards.
b. Edit Community Rewards.
c. Enter our organization number 82020.
d. Click Search.
e. Click Dixie.
f. Click Save.

You're done! Kroger will pay a portion of your store purchases to the
band automatically every time you swipe your Plus card.

(Do you use your phone number at the register? Call 800-576-4377,
select option 4 to get your Kroger Plus card number.)

Thanks for participating in the Kroger Community Rewards fundraiser
program! This has been a good source of passive income for the band.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me or call me.

Remke biggs's

We did this last year, and we made about $2,000.  This one's easy.

Here's how it works.

1.  Get a gift card from me for Remke biggs

2.  Go to the store to do your shopping.  Right before you ring your order at the cashier, tell the cashier you want to load money onto your gift card.  Estimate how much your order is and load that amount onto your card by telling the cashier that's what you want to do. Let's say your order is about $50, for example.  The cashier rings up your order, and you pay for your order with the $50 you just put on your gift card.  Why do it?  The band gets 4% back!

3.  Get as many gift cards as you want, for example, Mr. & Mrs. each carry cards, grandparents, anybody who wants to use a gift card and support the band.  If you give gift cards to people for gifts, like at the holidays, or if you pay somebody in cash, for example a cleaning lady, you can give them a gift card.  We don't need the cards back. We can get new cards easily.

4.  The Remke program used to be way different. 

5.  Remke card good at the food store, but not for Speedway.  Not yet anyway.

6.  Fine print:  Once these cards have value, once you load money onto them, they never expire.  So come and see Benita!  I'm Louis' mom; I drive a white minivan.  I'm in the parking lot on Monday and Tuesday nights.  I'll give some of the cards to Joyce if you see her first. This is easy money...

 

BAND EQUIPMENT TRAILERS

We would like to add additional lettering and logos to the sides of our trailers. Additional funds are needed. Funds raised from the Sponsorship program (see below) are being designated for this. We are also building out the inside of the trailers to hold our uniforms, equipment, and instruments. Stop by the trailers at competitions and see the progress. If you would like to make a donation to assist the band with this, please click on the "Donate" button below.  Your generous donation is appreciated!

The Dixie Heights High School Band Boosters rely on fundraising and the generosity of our community to help pay expenses. We are currently raising money to build out and customize the inside and outside of our two new trailers. Our band has over 100 members and the two trailers allow us to haul instruments, props and uniforms in an organized, clean and safe environment. We gratefully accept donations, which are completely tax deductible. Please consider donating today by using the convenient PayPal button below.
