After sorting through and organizing mountains of “stuff” Friday afternoon and evening (the donations were truly overwhelming, thank you so much!!), we kicked off our sale at 9am Saturday and enjoyed a steady stream of customers throughout the day. In all we made over $3,100 in profit (and the special band & orchestra memories, of course, were priceless…) None of this would have been possible without your help and support; many thanks to all who donated items, refreshments, or your valuable time to help make this endeavor a success!
Also, many special thanks to band parents Kelly Bard, Adriana Beaudreault, MariaElaina Cirone, Lisa Kyer, Laura Lee Milhaven, Anne McKeown, Theresa Ryan-Onatzevitch, Lisa Statler, Stacey Warren, Jennifer Weitman and Deborah Woodard for their tireless organizational, logistical, and advertising expertise!!
SPECIAL THANKS to band parent Theresa Ryan-Onatzevitch and orchestra parent Melissa Montaruli for their amazing work organizing all of the parent volunteers and working out so many of our logistical and planning details behind the scenes. In addition, SPECIAL THANKS to Adriana Beaudreault and MariaElaina Cirone for securing bountiful food donations for our volunteers, and Lisa Kyer and Stacey Warren for securing the local charity Green Drop, to whom we donated all our remaining items.
Attached are some photos of our Tag Sale (and Pep Band) experience for you to enjoy :
