Dear Parent(s) / Guardian(s):
Our Fall Product Chocolate Bars sale will begin on Wednesday, September 5th. A special kick-off assembly will take place tomorrow Tuesday, September 4th following the regular morning assembly. All families who chose to participate in the 2018-2019 fundraising campaigns will receive 1 case (4 boxes; 60 pieces in each) of chocolate bars to be picked up on Wed., Sept. 5th after school (1:30 pm to 2:30 pm) or before “Back to School Night” (5:00 pm to 6:00 pm) in Room 5 (Music Room). Parent(s)/Guardian(s) will be required to sign for cases. Product MUST be picked up and cannot be returned once checked out. There are NO RETURNS or REFUNDS for this sale. Families will be billed for products sold or not.
BACK BY DEMAND!! We are excited to continue our partnership with Signature Fundraising. When it comes to quality there is simply no comparison! Signature Chocolates are the #1 Certified Peanut Free chocolate bar in America! 1 Box includes (60 bars): 18 Almond, 18 Caramel, 12 Crisp, 6 Dark Chocolate, and 6 Milk Chocolate. All bars are 1.5 ounces. Each chocolate bar sells for $1.00 each. The sale of 1 case (4 boxes) is a total value of $240 worth of chocolate and will earn you a $120 credit towards your required $500 financial commitment!
But, there’s more… Early bird submission of sale money is also highly encouraged! Your child will earn a free dress pass for every box sold & money submitted by Monday, Sept. 24th! (Passes will be distributed at the end of the campaign). Your child’s name will also be entered into a Weekly Wednesday “Trojan drawing” for every box sold above the minimum. Three (3) special assemblies (9/12, 9/19 & 9/26) will follow the regular morning assembly where hidden prizes behind the letters “TROJANS” can be earned. Who wouldn’t want to “leap for dollars”, “grab for cash” or win mystery prizes? The more you sell over the 4-box minimum, the more chances you have to win!
Three top sellers will earn – First Prize = $150; Second Prize = $100; Third Prize = $50 (In the event of a tie, the prize reward will be divided.)
Top class will earn – A special class lunch that will take place after the conclusion of the sale
Additional Chocolate boxes can also be ordered by filling out a LOG SHEET for “Additional Boxes” located in the school office. NO paper forms will be issued. A parent/guardian signature is required.
There are NO RETURNS OR REFUNDS for this sale. Upon pickup, please note that it is the family’s responsibility to continue to keep the candy stored properly at no more than 74 degrees Fahrenheit to keep the chocolate from melting and resolidifying at a lower temperature. White marks will appear when fat particles in the chocolate separate due to fluctuations due to cold or hot temperatures.
When submitting money, clearly print your child’s name, grade, and amount on the envelope. You will be responsible for cash shortages. Checks/Money orders are encouraged and should be made out to: St. Anthony of Padua School.
Early Bird monies are due to the school office by 12 noon on Monday, September 24th to qualify for prizes, which includes final Trojan drawing entry, free dress passes, top seller, and top class. Chocolate bar sale ends and final submission of funds are due in the office by Friday, October 5th.
Should you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Geneva Varquez – firstname.lastname@example.org, Leah Nakayama – email@example.com or the school office 310-329-7170.
Thank you, again, in advance for your continued support, and let’s have some fun raising funds!
