DATE CHANGE – Marching Band – Phone Book Fundraiser

August 18, 2014 – August 19, 2014 all-day

NOTE! Yellowbook’s Pierce County campaign has been delayed.  It will now start around August 18.  Any experienced teams that wish to strike out on their own during the week, please contact Don Skaggs right away so your route can be secured.

New teams will need some guidance from experienced teams, so we will be doing those routes the Saturday of Labor Day weekend.

Please mark your calendars accordingly and let Don know your teams of 2-3 runners as soon as you can. This fundraiser should pay for ALL Marching Band entry fees if we do 7-10 routes!


This fundraiser is a quick way to pay for ALL Marching Band Festival entry fees for the 2014 season, significantly reducing out-of-pocket costs to participate.

We will be delivering phonebooks on either Saturday or Sunday to routes in Pierce country (to be selected the week before). We need 8-10 drivers with vehicles that can hold an additional 2-3 persons and 600-700 phone books.

Routes will be selected early in the week by the project leaders, based on our experience with previous projects, to give enough time for drivers to pre-plan routes.

We will meet early on either Saturday or Sunday morning (TBD) and deliver until all routes are complete.  Last time, the average time for a route was 6-8 hours, but applying what we learned we can likely reduce that time significantly.
