This is our largest FBBC fundraiser of the year!! Students request donations from friends & family to support them in the “marathon of rocking” – students sit in rocking & rolling chairs throughout the event playing games, having competitions, etc. It is a lot of fun! Students receive prizes for different levels of donations received on their behalf, which range from food & drinks to gift cards. All students are eligible for door prize drawings. There is a minimum donation of $65 to participate. There are three main things for you to know:
Mail-out Requests: Students sent donation request letters to out-of-town family & friends during the mini-camp in early June. If your student missed this mail out, we are sending the needed forms, so you can still send mail-outs from home. We will also have a form in August for donations from local family & friends. When sending mail-out donation requests, please do the following:
1. Enclose a letter explaining Rockathon – **be sure to sign it with a personal note & your name.
2. Enclose a stamped, pre-addressed envelope, so donations can be mailed to the FBBC in care of the high school:
CLHS Falcon Band Booster Club
2929 Bay Area Boulevard
Houston, TX 77058
** BE SURE to write the BAND STUDENT’S First & Last NAME on the BACK of the return envelope, for credit to be given to them.
3. Enclose a TAX RECEIPT for the donor to keep their records.
Rockathon Volunteers and Donations – to make our Rockathon work, we need many parent volunteers and donations of gift cards for door prizes. Please follow this link to the 2017 Rockathon Sign Up Genius page: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0e48a4ad229-rockathon2
Corporate Matching Donations: Many companies & businesses have matching donation programs. If you work for a company with a matching grants program, please consider requesting a matching donation. The FBBC can help you with any paperwork you may need to fill out.
