EHS Vocal Music Fundraiser Underway

By Staff | Aug 18, 2015

Emmetsburg High School Vocal Music students and their parents are kicking off their annual Value Card fundraising event.

This year’s fundraiser will once again feature Value Cards, which have been created and prepared by the Emmetsburg Vocal Music Booster Organization. The Vocal Value Cards feature discounts and services from 42 local and area businesses. All of the proceeds of the sales go to the Emmetsburg vocal students, rather than to a professional fund raising company. For a small fee, a Vocal Value Card will provide the purchaser with over $3000 in merchandise and services if they take advantage of every offer contained on the value card.

“These cards are a great value and a wonderful fundraiser for our vocal students, and we encourage the public to support the EHS Vocal Music students in this fundraising effort,” noted Luke Miller, Vocal Music Director at Emmetsburg High School. “All of the money earned through the sales of these cards will go personally to the student who sells the value card, and that amount will be deducted from the total amount owed for their spring performance tour to Nashville.”

This school year, the Emmetsburg High School Concert Choir, Womens Chorus and Mens Chorus, along with the EHS Concert Band, will travel to Nashville in April for their performance tour. The cost of the four-day tour, including motor coach transportation to and from Nashville, admissions and meals on site will be $750 per student. The Emmetsburg Vocal Music Boosters and Emmetsburg Band Boosters will provide monetary scholarships to each student to assist in reducing the overall cost for each student, but each music student will still need support to make the trip affordable to all group members.

“All vocal students will have Value Cards available for sale. If you are not contacted and would like to purchase a card, just let a student or parent know and arrangements will be made,” Miller noted. “And, we want to give a special thanks to all the local businesses for their generous support of our schools music programs and to the community!”
