Dear Parents and Students,


On October 8, 2016, the CHS Marching Ram Band will host its 33rd annual Music in Motion Marching Band Competition. We have 18 bands coming, including two college bands, and we are hoping for The Windjammers from the US Coast Guard.  Stay tuned!!!!


Help the Band Identify Sponsors!


Each year, individuals and businesses have supported the Marching Ram Band by becoming a sponsor or purchasing advertisements in our Music in Motion Program Book.  This year, we are expanding this and offering year-round opportunities to sponsor our instrumental music programs.  This is a major piece of our program fundraising.


We need your help!  Everyone knows someone who would support the band if simply asked.  We want you to ask.  We have put the following Sign-Up link on our website (www.ramband.com) with a list of the businesses that have supported us in the last few years: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090c4aa9aa2ea6fa7-07312016


Please sign up for two (2) or more businesses that you will approach.  If there is a business you know that is not on this list, please add it in the space provided so you can select that as one of your businesses.  The sign-up is being used to prevent local businesses from being approached by multiple families, so please sign up early to get the businesses you want!


Once you have signed up, please take the attached Sponsorship Form and Selling Points and get started!!  The Sponsorship Form contains all of the details on the available sponsorship levels and advertising options, as well as where to send the ad copy and payment.  Please submit all forms and payments no later than September 16, 2016 so we can meet the deadline for printing the Music in Motion Program Book.


The BPA is offering prizes to the top 3 sellers!!  More details coming soon!! 


Join the Key Sponsor Sales Team!!


The Sponsorship Committee is forming a Key Sponsor Sales Team to approach local businesses to increase sponsorship of the Marching Ram Band and other instrumental music programs at Cheshire High School. If you are interested in joining this team, please sign up at the following link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090c4aa9aa2ea6fa7-07162016

or contact Agnes Nawrocki at agnes32g@gmail.com or 203-641-8649.


We are excited about expanding the Sponsorship program and look forward to working with you on this important project!  Your assistance will be greatly appreciated! Please let us know if you have any questions.


Go Ram Band!!
