The Falcon Bands are reliant on the generous donations and assistance provided by our parents and families. The fundraising efforts for the Falcon Bands are directed through the Band Boosters. Here are a list of some of the various fundraising efforts for the Falcon Bands.
Families and businesses that make a monetary donation at one of our NOTE levels will be recognized and thanked in every concert program throughout the school year.
We are now soliciting advertisers for ads to be placed in all the CFHS concert programs and band newsletters throughout the school year (more than 10 per year!) throughout the school year. The ads are very reasonably priced and proceeds will benefit all our students in the band program. Submit by September 15, 2021 to guarantee inclusion in the first concert program of the year.
