Santa’s Craft Castle:
Letter from the Booster President
Ike Band Families,
We are now just a month away from our biggest and most important fund raising event – the 36th annual Santa Craft Castle! This event has over 130 vendors and we traditionally draw anywhere from 3-4 thousand attendees. This is a huge undertaking but it brings in huge portion of the revenue we need for the year. By having this successful fundraiser we are able to fund the programs for all the bands including buying music, instruments, travel, meals, and hundreds of other things that ensure our students have a great experience while they are participating in band.
That being said, it is critical that every family and every student contribute to this event.
There are many ways to contribute. Our organizers have done a great job at breaking down the jobs into manageable time slots. In addition, we ask every family to make a donation to the bake sale. The bake sale is a huge profit driver for this event. Finally, there are miscellaneous goods available to donate as well.
Another way to contribute is to utilize the strength of social media. Attached is a picture you can use to post to Facebook, Twitter, your homeowner association websites, etc. Get creative to spread the word. And if you have any other marketing ideas or opportunities please reach out to me and let me know.
There are (4) sign up genius links below:

This is a big event, but with everyone’s support we can have a successful day and continue to support our students.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns.
As always thank you for your support!
