Jimmy John’s Field Fundraiser

Just a reminder that the Jimmy John’s Field fundraiser is in full swing. Each game you work earns your student’s Student Account $25 and the Band’s General Fund $5. That’s PER PERSON working, so if you and your spouse both work a game, that’s $50 for your student and $10 for the Band!

If you love the sights and sounds of a summer baseball game, get involved today! The SignUpGenius and more info can be found here.
