January 25-27, 2013
Musicthon is a Broward County Music Teachers Association Annual Fundraiser for Scholarships as well as other charitable causes.
Dear Parents and Students,
It is time to prepare for our annual fundraiser. This year’s motto is “Kids playing 4KIDS of South Florida”. This year’s proceeds will benefit all BCMTA activities (summer camp scholarships, programs, student day awards, master classes and competition prizes), and 4KIDS, a non-profit organization “providing hope for kids in crisis”.
For more information on this wonderful cause, please visit: http://www.4kidsofsfl.org
Musicthon will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, January 25, 26 and 27, 2013 at the Galleria Mall, 2414 E. Sunrise Blvd in Fort Lauderdale. Our performance time is Friday, January 25 from 7-8 pm.
PLEASE NOTE: Each student is required to collect a minimum of $15.00 to play in the event. All money raised is to be collected PRIOR to MUSICTHON. No Money is to be collected, counted or left for pick up at the event. Teachers will mail funds raised along with the Teachers Tally Sheet to the Treasurer NO LATER than Monday JANUARY 28, 2013. Please make sure that all checks are made payable to BCMTA.
T-SHIRTS or Bags FOR PARTICIPATING STUDENTS AND TEACHERS:
Each participant in Musicthon 2013 will receive a commemorative t-shirt or a music tote bag. The bags are the white and blue canvas bags with the music note BCMTA logo.. T-shirts will be a new design on the back and BCMTA logo on front. T-shirt sizes are the following (include one for each teacher): Youth S, M, L, and Adult S, M, L, XL. Please let me know what size your child will need.
As a further incentive for students, Mark Leszczynski, owner of Piano Showcase (who will be providing the piano for Musicthon), is having a Treasure Hunt for all Musicthon participants. Each student will receive a Treasure Map with a key that may open a chest at the Piano Showcase store. They will have one week to come to the store. Only 3 keys will open the chest. If the lucky treasure seeker’s key opens the chest, they pick one of the 3 envelopes which will tell them which grand prize they won! It could be a keyboard over a $500 value, an IPOD or an I-tunes gift card worth $100.00! If the key does not open the chest, the treasure seeker still gets a piece of festival approved sheet music as a consolation prize.
Remember to get these pledge forms out before the holidays so that extended family can support our students’ efforts. Please print out the Sponsor Letter and the Student Pledge Form to give to your students.
