PHOENIX, Ore. — Phoenix High School students are selling fireworks to raise money for marching band camp and choir robes.
The school’s music boosters will get 30% of total sales. Some of that money will go to help student volunteers pay for marching band camp.
“This is our one big make it or break it fundraiser for the year,” said the music boosters’ president, Kelli Salnardi.
Each student volunteer is working for money to go into their individual account. Sophmore, Walter Denison said every dollar counts.
“Band camp alone is $150,” Denison said. “The entire year costs around $300 – $400. Any fundraisers you can do to offset that cost are amazing.”
You can find the school’s fireworks tent in the Ray’s Parking Lot on Main Street in Phoenix. They will be out there from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. until July 4th. This Sunday, from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m., they will be serving up hot dogs and burgers while performing live.
