• Gift Card Fundraiser

    It is the time of year when our thoughts turn to the holidays and gift-giving. Once again, we encourage you to BUY LOCAL this holiday season by participating in our annual BUY LOCAL Gift Card Fundraiser. Why are we offering only local? It is simple:

    ✓ Local businesses have generously donated higher percentages to WAMD and other Woodstock Academy fundraisers throughout the year, and this is our way of supporting them.
    ✓ National companies give less back with their fundraisers.
    ✓ We are supporting the local economy.
    ✓ Shop great gift cards to a wide variety of stores and restaurants from the comfort of your own home. Do all your holiday gift buying - no masks, running around, and wasting gas!
    ✓ A percentage of every gift card/certificate sold will be given back to WAMPA @ 10%, 15%, and even 20% per card sold!
    ✓ The more funds we generate, the more we can support our music students by providing camperships, scholarships, food for various events, and purchasing of instruments, uniforms, and other items greatly needed by the Music Department.
    The process is simple:
    Order online October 8- 29 by clicking on this link.
    Online orders cost WAMPA an average of $5 an order to process. We have given those that order online the option to pay for their processing fee.
    1. Print the attached order form, and share it with your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and other people you are in contact with. Be extra creative this year and share the form, using email and social media. If you frequent any of these businesses regularly, consider buying a gift card to use the next time you visit. WAMD will benefit from your purchase.

    2. Decide what cards you would like to purchase and at what value. Most businesses are offering their gift cards in various amounts. (the @ on each line is the amount that the business is donating back to us with each gift card sold) E.G.: If you purchase 2 gift cards for $50 each for The Courthouse Bar & Grill Restaurant, you will make your check out for $100. The Courthouse will donate 20% - $20 of that amount back to WAMPA!

    3. Fill in the order form and write a check. Payment is by Check only please, and it should be made out to “WAMPA” for the correct amount.

    4. Mail your order form(s) and check(s) to: WA Music Parents Association, C/O Susie Racine, 57 Academy Road Woodstock, CT 06281. Make sure they are postmarked by October 27th. Or drop the form off to Susie Racine on South Campus by the 27th.

    5. The gift cards will be available for pick up at the Winter Concert on December 10th. Those not attending the concert can contact Susan Webster (smwebster73@gmail.com) to arrange a convenient time and location for pick up.

    Thank you for supporting our music students!
