Ad Sales & Chorus PFC Deadline

The chorus department at Boone High School is preparing for the amazing season ahead and is in search of sponsors to help our young artists create outstanding choral performances. This is a new enterprise for us, and we hope to help build and support business in our community while raising funds for accompanist and choreographer fees, clinicians, music, group travel, concert recordings, MPA registration, classroom equipment, technology, and performances. It also helps us determine the scale of our Variety Show in the spring. Will we have the funds to hire a choreographer, lighting designer, sound engineer, professional musicians, etc?

The deadline for all ad sales is Friday, December 5. By that date, we must have an order form, payment, and the graphics for each ad to be projected at our concert. The success of this fundraiser

  • This is a great opportunity for local businesses to advertise to the Boone community. You are encouraged to approach locally owned businesses, as chains often have to contact their corporate office and can’t work within our time frame.
  • In the past, some families have purchased an “ad” with photos and a message to be displayed on-screen in tribute of their child’s involvement in the chorus program. This is most often done for seniors, but it is not limited in that way.

Chorus PFC deadline

This fundraiser is intended to help students raise the funds to pay their Chorus PFC of $75. The deadline for the PFC is the same as the ad sales– Friday, December 5. Students who fail to fundraiser or pay their PFC by this deadline will have an obligation entered for this amount with the school media center.
