We have an exciting, easy opportunity to raise money for our band program without going door to door!
Here's the scoop:
On Saturday September 15th from 9am-2pm at the Alliance Montrose Ford-Lincoln dealership, the Louisville Band Boosters will be earning money for every test drive taken in a Ford automobile.
We will be set up in the parking lot between the Montrose dealership and Elder-Beerman. All we need is for you to come, register (very simple), and drive a car. Montrose will provide all 2012-2013 Ford models to choose from. Drivers 18 years and older with a valid drivers license (either driving or riding) in a new Ford vehicle will earn $20.00 for the band. There is a limit of one driver per household.
Example: If Mr. B, Mr. Stankey, Ms. Mariano, and Mr. Zander drive together, the band earns $80.00 because we have 4 licensed drivers over 18 from different households taking a test drive. It's simple!!! We even make more if you choose to drive a Ford Escape...for the Escape we make $30.00 for the band.
Please understand that there is ABSOLUTELY NO PRESSURE from the sales department at Montrose. They are not trying to sell you a car that day, they are simply asking that you drive a Ford and raise money for the band. It is their hope that when you are ready for a new car that you will consider a Ford at Montrose.
We have checked with other area schools (Jackson and Marlington) who have participated in this fundraiser and they have confirmed that the above is TRUE! (and they made lots of $$$)
When you come on Saturday Sept. 15, a few of the boosters will get you registered. You will then take a test drive in the car of your choice (it can even just be around the block). Upon returning you will be asked to complete a short survey. That's it!
The Band Boosters will also be having a baked goods sale and providing hot dogs, chips and pop for just a donation. We hope that you will make time (about 30 minutes total) to help us raise this easy money!"

Thank you for your consideration of this fundraising opportunity. The Boosters do so much for our band program and their ability to sustain their high level of support for the students is crucial to the future of the LHS/LMS Bands.
