M&M Basket Help!

M&M Basket Help!

Hello Parents and Friends,

Believe it or not, Meatballs & Music is only three months away, so mark your calendars for Saturday, January 27, 2018.  Our gift basket committee is already in full swing gathering donations to make our yearly gift basket fundraiser a success. Meatballs and Music is where the community is invited to purchase a spaghetti dinner and attend performances by students in our music department while they enjoy dessert. It is one of Peters Township Music Booster’s largest fundraisers and tickets sold for the gift basket raffle raise a significant portion of funds from this event. Last year, our committee put together OVER 150 BASKETS, and raised over $9,000 for our kids!!!


Presale Information

This year, to make it easier for you to purchase your gift basket raffle tickets, our committee would like to invite you to buy your tickets during one of our presale dates. This will allow you to skip those long lines during the event, take advantage of a special presale deal, and spend more time with friends and family enjoying the music of our performers.

The ticket sheet price is $15.00 and gives you 25 chances to win, PLUS it also gives you a chance to win our door prize, too! If you purchase your basket raffle ticket sheets during any of the presale dates, we will offer you a BUY 3, GET 1 FREE deal!  This deal will ONLY be available during the presale dates, and will NOT be offered during the Meatballs & Music event.  (For those of you who have attended in past years, this year, all tickets will be the same price for all baskets.)

Please visit our Meatballs & Music Basket Raffle Ticket table at any of the following events to purchase your tickets:

Donations Request

Our committee is also asking for donations, and will gladly accept them during any of our presale dates listed above. Please consider donating completed gift baskets to be raffled, new items to be included in gift baskets, or supplies that can be used to assemble the baskets. The Peters Township Music Booster membership represents over 130 families. If every family donated a completed basket, our committee efforts would be a success. Alternatively, please consider going together with friends to create your own themed basket.  Our committee would love to be able to display gift baskets representing ALL the music groups: all the Choral groups, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Marching Band, Orchestra, and Wind Symphony ensembles.

If you are a business owner, know that there are over 2,000 dinners served during the Meatballs and Music event—a great way to display your product is in a beautiful basket.  We are also happy to accept individual items and/or gift cards that we will put with other items in a basket created by our committee members.
