School Year Fundraiser Starts

Here until it's gone: 

September 4, 2018

Hello MPAC Families,

This year we are doing a new fundraiser, with special prize incentives! Here’s a little information about what we are doing and why.

Although not a registered Non-Profit, MPAC strives to bring its customers a fair cost while providing the staff a fair wage, all while giving back to the community whenever possible. By fundraising we are able to do the following:

1)    Supplement tuition to keep costs to our customers low while maintaining and making improvements on our facility and equipment. (Refinish floors, buy new stereo, etc).

2)    Provide free rehearsal space for Charity Dance Project, our sister charity project.

3)    Give sponsorship certificates to local schools, church auctions, and community groups. (Need one? Have an auction coming up? Ask!)

4)    Occasionally provide sponsorship or work-study to a student who needs short-term help with tuition.

In previous years we have made about $200-$500 annually from our fundraising efforts, giving back to the community in much higher numbers. This year, we’re striving to make a change. By partnering with World’s Famous Chocolate (because who can say no to chocolate?!?) and providing incentives back to you, we are hoping to break the $500 mark by December.

We have pre-ordered enough chocolate boxes to have one on hand for every dancer who would like to participate. A portion of the funds goes back to the chocolate  company, a portion will go to our Scholarship Programs and a portion goes back to you in the form of FUNdbucks! You can save your FUNdbucks up and trade them in for the following prizes! Each box of chocolate you sell gets you one FUNdbuck!

FUNdbuck Trade in:

1 FUNdbuck = MPAC Pencil

2 FUNdbucks = MPAC Water Bottle

3 FUNdbucks = Tights, your choice

4 FUNdbucks = Sparkle Drawstring Bag

5 FUNdbucks = Ankle Warmers

6 FUNdbucks = MPAC T-Shirt

7 FUNdbucks = Single use: 30% off as much as you want from the Boutique, includes shoes

8 FUNdbucks = Winter Show Ticket

9 FUNdbucks = One month tuition for one class on us

10 FUNdbucks = 1 RECITAL COSTUME on us

Whoever sells the most chocolate by Thanksgiving will receive a 5lb Chocolate Bar on stage at the Winter Show!

Please let us know if you have any questions! We’re ready for a SWEET year!

-MPAC Staff
