GCHS Sharks - Chicago 2014 007

Below is a list of the fundraising activities for the school year! In order to reach our goals for music and auxiliary instruction, equipment, uniforms, travel, trips, fees, etc. Parents, we all need to pitch in so that our students can continue to do an outstanding job.

We are always looking for volunteers to chair or co-chair fundraisers. If you chair a fundraising committee, it does not mean that you will be working on that fundraiser alone. What it does mean is that you will be able to work with other band parents who will assist you, and the more volunteers we have, the more successful our band will be. If you have any questions about Fundraising opportunities, please contact Mike Marino., President, Band Aid Club.

007, Halloween & GCHS Mays 030 

You’ve seen all the banners that are on the fence around the football field (they take them down over the summer – they will go up again in August) and you’ve always wondered who sells those – WELL – WE can sell them!  Here’s the deal – the Banners start at $500 – they are up all school year.

The Band gets $400 – this is a student share Fundraiser for us, so that means the student who sold the banner gets $100 – that’s $100 – in their account!  What a great way to help offset your band fees, the Disney/Universal Studios trip and even Large Band Trips!   Band mom Ms. El Mekkaoui is heading up this fundraiser.  You can email her at  She will be happy to help!

Other larger banner and sponsorship options are available. Please contact Jennifer El Mekkaoui for more information.

Student Share Fundraisers for Non-Football Concessions

How can I put money in my students account? You must have worked at least 1 concession stand during a varsity football game and then you are eligible for “student share”  (approval in needed by Concession Chair, click to email her) Once your training night is completed, you and your child are eligible to earn $25 each night you work (only one share per family per night). Why not start lowering your band fee responsibility for next year.
