Welcome to York Music Boosters

GREENS SALE AND MATTRESS SALE!!

YMB is holding two of its annual fundraising events and we hope you can help!

The Greens Sale, kicked off Sept. 24th and running now through Oct. 11th, is an opportunity for students to sell holiday arrangements with a portion of the sales proceeds funding their music escrow accounts to help pay for upcoming events, trips and expenses. Click on the Greens Sale link on the left side of the YMB web page for more information.

The Mattress Sale, coming up Saturday, Oct. 6th, 10am to 5pm, is an event held by YMB which helps fund our mission of supporting the York music program, its students and events. The Mattress Sale also gives our students an opportunity to solicit sales themselves, a portion of each sale going into their music escrow accounts. See the News item below for more information.

CAN YOU HELP?

The York Music Boosters Board is still searching for someone to fill the role of Board Secretary to take and publish meeting minutes from Board meetings. If you are interested, please reach out to Board President Nicole Braun.

We're also looking for Concert Ushers to hand out programs at concerts throughout the year - you will still be able to attend the concert, as we just need you to hand out programs from 6:45pm-7:30pm the night of the concert. If you're interested, sign up through Sign Up Genius.

MISSION AND MEETINGS

The York Music Boosters' mission is to support York's Musical Arts Department and its students by funding and supporting music events, grants and scholarships.

Our Board meets monthly in the York Music Production lab. The next meeting is Monday, Oct. 15 at 7:30pm.
