Hi Band Parents and Students,

I like to share with you some key updates. As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

☐ 10/3 (8 AM) through 10/6 (8 PM): The 12th Annual Auction will commence this Saturday. It is the largest fundraiser hosted by the Cherry Creek High School Band Parent Association. The proceeds from the auction will help raise necessary funds for the purchase and maintenance of musical instruments, and the continued development and growth of programs that benefit our band students. Traditionally this fundraiser is an “in-person” event along with a Fall Concert. This year, in response to the pandemic, we are holding the auction online. Please go to this link to participate – https://www.biddingowl.com/Auction/home.cfm?auctionID=22348 – you can bid via mobile phone, laptop or desktop. There are a wide variety of items for you to bid on, ranging from Deletables and Drinks to Weekend Getaways. You can sign up to receive a text message or e-mail if you are outbid. All families, students, and friends of Cherry Creek High School band programs as well as the school are welcome to participate. This event will be mentioned in the Cherry Creek weekly e-mail this week. Moreover, Mr. Libby will send communication to parents and students of other band programs to let them know. Happy bidding, good luck, and much thanks in advance for supporting our band community.

☐ 9/28: Purchased 2020 marching band apparel were distributed this past Monday (9/28). Please note that all 2020 marching band students received a short sleeve, cotton t-shirt at no charge. Please connect with your student, if you placed an order for additional items.

☐ 10/7: Butter Braids, Cookie Dough & Koda Coffee fundraiser – 593 total products were ordered. For this year only, the proceeds will be applied to the general band fund rather than individual student accounts since there is no marching band fee. For the 2021 Marching Band Season, the funds raised will be applied to the student’s account to help alleviate the cost of marching band participation/fees. Much thanks to everyone who placed an order, which can be picked up on 10/7 at the Hope United Methodist Church at the corner of Belleview and Dayton.
