Fundraising Information

The Performing Arts Boosters raises money through Touchdowns for the Performing Arts during the football season. Also, our Fall, Four Season fundraiser which includes the sale of fruit, meat, cheese, candy, nuts and cookie dough. Finally, through our Little Caesars Pizza fundraiser in the Spring. These funds are used in many ways. Some recent uses include; the continued support of our band and choir students through paid clinicians that work with our Carlisle students directly, instruments, sheet music for the band and choir, funding for All-State Camps and the Raccoon River Conference, and items on the Directors’ wish lists.  In 2018 our fundraising allowed the Boosters to donate funds into each student and chaperone accounts for the 2018 Spring Break Trip to Disney World in Florida, in addition to supplying four meals/snacks.
