Welcome to York Music Boosters

THE GREENS SALE IS UNDERWAY!

The annual Greens Sale is underway from now until October 12th. Profits from sales will be placed in students' escrow accounts to help pay for future musical events and trips.

Students can get further information from their music directors, or visit our Greens Sale web site for further information.

Print or download the order form in Excel format; the wreath brochure provides product info and prices.

NOTE: There were errors in a previously posted order form. If the form you downloaded shows an Orders Due date of October 12th, you're fine. Otherwise, please re-download and use the corrected form.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

SECOND ANNUAL YMB MATTRESS SALE

The YMB Mattress Fundraiser is back! This year's sale will be held at York HS on Saturday, October 14th from 10am to 5pm. Purchases benefit YMB and help us to fund York Music Program activities and purchases.

Music students can also earn $$ by helping to identify potential purchasers - every mattress purchased with a referral will result in a prize placed in the student's Escrow account. The more the referrals, the larger the prize!

Contact your music director or Carol Ruda for further information.
