Coca Cola Truckload Sale

Coke Sale fundraiser started today, so keep an eye out for the forms coming home. All products are $24 per case and contain 24 drinks per case, including PowerAde. Money and order forms are due to Mr. McHenry by August 30th, and the delivery date is September 11th. There are a few items listed on the customer receipt that we are not selling (Gold Peak Tea, Smart Water, and Tum-E-Yummies) in order to keep the pricing consistent.

Checks should be made out to Hixson HS Band.

Profit is $5.50 per case and all of it goes toward the seller’s marching band fees. If you go over, the surplus can be applied toward next year. If we sell over 300 cases total, profit goes up to $6.50 per case, so let’s get it done!
