CONCESSION WORKER FAMILY PASS AVAILABLE!! 

(Vicki Feltman)


Just a reminder to all Music Booster volunteers; everyone must pay to get into the football games, volunteering or not.  Assistant Principal Denae Nurnberg  ara Grande and the Athletic Boosters are offering Music Booster volunteers a chance to buy a special season pass to allow volunteers entry to the games at a discounted rate.  You must be a volunteer at concession, bbq, bleachers, etc., at some time during the game.  In other words, this is not available to families who only come to watch the game (or come just to watch the BAND).
 
The cost of the pass is $40.00.  It will admit 2 adults and school age children
 younger than high school age,  into all  Homestead “Home” football games, as long as the cardholder is volunteering during the game.  Personnel at the gate will have a list of volunteers, so there if you haven’t officially volunteered to help on a particular night, you won’t gain access.  The regular admission price to a home football game is $8 per adult per game and there are 6 home games in the season.

 

Another option is to buy an Athletics Family Pass for $75, which will allow 2 adults and their children into all Homestead “Home” sports activities, so, if you have students in band who also compete in cross country or swim team or volleyball, the athletics pass might be your best bet. 

 
Please contact Vicki Feltman at Vicki.feltman@gmail.com or the scrip sellers at scrip@homestead-music.org to purchase a Concession Worker Family Pass.  Contact the ASB office if you wish to purchase a Sports pass instead.

 
CONCESSION PRE-ORDER FORM
(Leissa Hartlage)
 
Hurry, get your forms in!  The first home football game is coming up September 6th. The deadline for the concession pre-order form is Wednesday, September 4th at 8:30PM.


If you would like to order food from the concession stand to eat after the half-time performance, please visit the HHSMB website at http://www.homestead-music.org, go to the Forms section and download the Concession Pre-Order Form. Please return the completed Concession Pre-Order Form, along with a check, to the box in the band room office.  You may place an order for one or more football games at any time.
 
As uniforms will not be worn for this game, food tickets will be handed out to section leaders and passed out by them. If there are any problems with tickets on game night, please see an adult at the pre-order table (beneath the home bleachers).
 
Questions can be directed to Leissa Hartlage at lhartlage@comcast.net.
