The charge for creating your ad is $15. Camera ready ads are due with payment to Anita by this Friday, November 29th.

CHOIR STUDENT SAVINGS ACCOUNTS— (formerly known as student escrow account). Advertise your business, or solicit others and earn 30% for your student’s account. Remember you can earn 30% of the cost of business ads and sponsorships to raise money for your student’s choir saving’s account. Annual advertising and sponsorships run the calendar year (January -December). If you are interested in earning money for your student’s account, the information for soliciting and ordering business sponsors and ads is attached here. You can also earn money for your student’s account by using the SCRIPS gift cards to purchase items from stores and websites that you frequent. Click here to participate: http://www.gpsouthchoir.org/scrip/. The next SCRIP order will be placed on December 1st. Think of all of the places you shop regularly and buy those SCRIP cards. You can earn money buying them for places you normally spend $$ anyway! Keep a stack in your wallet, these do not have to be for gifts only! Please feel free to email or call Amy Moncivais with any questions: Phone 313-819-8872 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org .
CAROLING DRIVERS NEEDED— We rely on parent drivers to transport choir caroling groups to their events on Friday 12/13 and Saturday 12/14. Each group receives a schedule of 6-8 events. Sign up early to transport your student and his or her group. This is a fun way to participate with the students and enjoy this holiday caroling event.
