99 PLEDGES FUNDRAISER
:You should have received an email with instructions on accessing your student’s 99 Pledges page for our biggest fundraiser of the year. Because we can’t do our normal “Blitz” fundraiser where the students go door-to-door in the neighborhoods of UA we are asking for online donations. We’re hoping to raise $10,000 this year to support the annual expenses of the band, so please give this your attention. If you can take the link from 99 Pledges and paste it into your social media accounts, we can request donations from more people. Here’s a screenshot of the links to social media on the student page. If you haven’t received an email from 99Pledges, please contact Rebecca McClung at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need help with any steps please reach out. Thanks for your endless support of the UAHS marching band! Note that ~32 days remain for this fundraiser.
