District Six Orchestra Friends

Fundraisers

Various fundraisers are offered to our middle school and high school students to help defray their field trip expenses.  Each middle school does their own fundraising. The activities listed below, are done at the high school level.  Our Booster Club, the District Six Orchestra Friends, sponsors these fundraisers to help support the students and the district orchestra program.

September 

T-Shirt Sale

A new orchestra t-shirt is designed and sold each Fall.  The shirts are available for order for 5th -12th grades.These shirts along with the orchestra magnets earn funds that are used throughout the program for music scholarships, trips, snacks, and other orchestra activities. All profits go to the Orchestra Friends.

Restaurant Nights

Throughout the year restaurants sponsor “orchestra night”.   A percentage (and tips) of the evening’s proceeds go to the Orchestra Friends who in turn use the funds to support our orchestra students.  Watch the calendar for specific dates.  Several are held throughout the year.
