Great Opportunity Selling Grocery Coupon Books
Selling Coupon books can be a very lucrative and successful fundraiser for individual students. Here is information from our Coupon Book Chairperson:
The way the coupon book fundraiser will work for students is that the student/parent will purchase the coupon books from BAW LONDON for $5 per book. Since the books cost BAW LONDON $1 per book, the student will receive $4 credit to their Charms account upon purchase and treasurer will log it into Charms. Then the cash that the student receives from selling the book is his/hers to keep, or he/she can choose to deposit it also in their Charms account. Receipts will be provided upon purchase. Coupons expire July 31, 2017. All 3 books have a $5 coupon (for a $75 purchase at HyVee or a $50 purchase at Hen House or Price Chopper), so buyers can recoup the cost easily.
Coupon books may be purchased by check made out to "BAW London" (or cash if necessary) from two different people/locations:
1) Dinah Humphreys, 8972 Twilight Lane, Lenexa, 66219. 913-709-2210.
2) Gwyn Valverde, 10315 W 92nd Pl., Overland Park, 66214. 913-548-5712.

Helping One of Our Own
SM West Band Supporters, a fellow Band Parent is under going treatment for Stage 3 Breast Cancer. Thankfully it is treatable, but comes with a lot of medical costs. With permission by the family and Mr. Thomas, we would like to share the gofundme account to help alleviate some of the stress of the medical bills for another Vikings Family.
