The Ambridge Band offers students numerous fundraising opportunities to help defray costs associated with participating in the program, including band fees and trips. Laura Mikush manages the student accounts, which is where profits from fundraisers will go for students. There are a few fundraisers which are ongoing, and are available for participation at any time. Others are held seasonally, or on other occasions. As we begin new fundraisers, we'll post details here.

Christmas Craft Show - December 1
The Ambridge Area Band Boosters will be hosting their annual Holiday Craft Show on Saturday, December 1, 2018, at the Ambridge Area High School. We are excited to be partnering with the Ambridge Regional Chamber of Commerce again this year. Our craft show will be part of the community-wide Christmas on Merchant event. There will be many activities planned for this event including a holiday parade, activities for the kids in the park, Christmas in the Village as well as photos with Santa at the Library. This partnership was a success last year and we expect it to be a wonderful start to the holiday season.
We hope you will plan to join us as we celebrate the season and raise money for the band's trip to perform in Disney World. The craft show will be in the high school lobby. Our lobby is very spacious and can accommodate several vendors. We also have ample parking near the front entrance. Some of our "regulars" have become much-loved by our students and it wouldn't be the same without you!
Please contact email@example.com or 724-650-1254 with questions. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on December 1st!
