2016 Fundraising

We have started the 2016 Marching Band Budget Process Plan, discussions at the February Booster meeting were on Fundraising.  If you have suggestions for upcoming fundraisers or comments on fundraisers we have done in the past this is your time to share as we finalize the 2016 fundraisers.  The Fundraiser preference sheet is attached, your input is needed in planning the 2016 Fundraisers.  These will be discussed and decided on over the next couple months so everything is in place by the start of Marching Band Season. We would appreciate it if you would take the time to fill out the form and return to an Exec Board member this month or email the Band Notes email with your input and suggestions. Thanks!

Dome Concessions Availability

Dome Concessions

Thank you to everyone who has stepped up and volunteered at the Dome this season. This is the biggest fundraiser the Boosters have and its success has a direct reflection on our participation fees. We are looking forward to next season and on ways we can improve this fundraiser. We will be forming a Dome Steering Committee and our looking for volunteers to serve on this committee. If interested please contact an Executive Board member.

This is a great opportunity for members (16 and over ) and parents to bond, have fun, and earn student account credits towards next season.

Never worked the Dome before, don't worry we will get you a "Dome Buddy".  Car Pooling and shuttling will be arranged for those who need it.

If your child is 16 or over and wants to work for his/her account but transportation is an issue....we can help!  Many parents would be willing to transport if they are working the same game.  Contact Wendy to discuss.

No more than 1/3 of the staffing can be under 18; we must have a 2 adult to 1 minor ratio. Get friends and family to work with you, 3 people working a basketball game for the same member would place around $90 in your student account.

You can cover all of next year's participation fees before the season even starts!

What do we do at the Dome???

Prepare food beforehand, food service during the game and clean up afterwards.  We need cashiers, soda pourers, runners, prepare nachos, and grill workers.

Workers earn $6/hour.  For a typical football game workers earned around $42 and for basketball it’s around $30.  Workers must be at least 16 years of age (this is a Dome Policy) and family and friends can work towards your account. We need a minimum of 19 volunteers for all events.

Band/Guard/Percussion members are encouraged to work games that do not conflict with rehearsals/competitions.

Yes! Family, Friends even Alumni can work for your account.

The Boosters are You!  The Marching Band Boosters is an organization consisting of parents and guardians who would like to participate in the direction of the Liverpool Marching Warriors. 


The goal of the Booster organization is to support the Marching Band Program; to develop and carry out fundraising and other projects which assist with keeping actual out of pocket costs as low as possible; to help promote the Marching Band programs within the school district and the greater community. 



Some area employers (ex. AETNA , BEST BUY, and VERIZON) will give grants to non-profit organizations that their employees volunteer for. Check with your employer and see if such a program exists at your place of employment
