Butter Braids & Premium Coffee—Student-Specific Fundraiser

Selling Butter Braids, Cookie Dough, Coda Coffee, AND new this season, Premium Coffee, raises funds that go directly into your student’s account to help fund marching band expenses. This year we are Butter Braids, Yumbana Gluten-Free cookie dough flavors, and the award-winning Coda Coffee. Each Butter Braid product sells for $13.00-$14.00; Gluten-Free Cookie Dough sells for $13.00, and Coda coffee for $16. For every product sold, 40% of the sale goes to that student’s account.

To learn how your Student Account works and how credits can be used, please see Student Accounts Information on the CCHSBPA Website.

Due to the timing, credits from Butter Braid sales cannot be used for the November 2022 CCHS Marching Band Hollywood Trip.
