– SCRIPS (gift cards) make great graduation gifts! This is an easy, fast way to put money in your student’s account! Simply purchase store gift cards for everyday purchases such as gas, eating out, travel, clothing and many others, or to give as gifts for any occasion. The merchants give a percentage of the gift card purchase to the band, with 1/2 of that being deposited directly into your student’s account.Go to wbbands.info/fundraising/scrip-program/ for more information. Help support the band while doing your shopping for gifts.


BINGO is up and running every Friday night! Add $30/week to your student’s band account and volunteer today.
