2017 Citrus Fruit Fundraiser
The annual citrus fruit sale for Sullivan Central High School, Blountville Middle School, and Holston Middle School bands will begin on Wednesday, October 11th. Our supplier will again be Riversweet Citrus of Vero Beach, Florida. This is the company that we have had great success with for many years. You will find their product to be the very best and they are excellent in taking care of any problems that may arise.
You will collect payment for the fruit as you take the orders. All customer checks must be made payable to you. Please write one check or money order to your respective band for the total amount of your order. We cannot deal in cash.
All orders must be turned into your band director by TUESDAY, October 31st!
At the end of the sale, please tally total units sold and total dollars sold on the order form located on the back of the Riversweet brochure. PLEASE PRINT CLEARLY SO ORDERS WILL BE ACCURATE!! The fruit will be delivered to Sullivan Central High School on Wednesday, December 6th. Pick-up is scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m. and will continue until 6:30 p.m. Make your arrangements now to pick your order up on this day and between these times. We are dealing with a perishable item and prompt delivery is very important.
Be sure to inspect each box of fruit before delivering it to your customer. If it contains any bad pieces, replacements are available at your school’s band office. Replacements will take place through Friday, December 9th. We cannot guarantee replacements after this date. Some of the pieces may appear “green”, but will be ripe on the inside…or will ripen if left in direct sunlight.
Holston Middle students will be competing for top salesperson in each grade level. There will be a 1st place salesperson ($50 check), a 2nd place salesperson ($30 check), and a 3rd place salesperson ($10 check) in each grade level. Awards will be given to students at the December 5th Band Concert.
There will also be a pizza party for all band classes, IF we break last year’s fundraiser of $16,500 in total fruit sales! EVERYONE SELL SOME FRUIT!!!!!
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR BAND!!
