YHS Practice-A-Thon Fundraiser

10:00 PM, January 18th - 6:00 AM, January 19th


Students are raising money for their musical tour to Orlando on March 21 – March 27, 2019. The Practice-A-Thon will provide students with an opportunity to obtain sponsors to donate money to help fund their travel. The Yorkville High School Music Department will be having a lock-in practice-a-thon from 10 PM January 18th thru 6 AM January 19th, 2019. All students participating will be practicing a total of 8 hours throughout the evening. Any sponsor may choose to donate per–hour, or give a flat donation provided that the student’s 8 hour goal is met. Please bring the Donor Tally Form, your money, and all sponsor addresses the night of the event.


Practice-a-thon Fundraiser Instructions


  1. Read Helpful Tips for Earning Practice Donations

  2. Distribute donation letters via US Mail, or e-mail to family and friends.  Set up face groups.

  3. When you send donation letters, also provide the sponsors with a sponsor donation form (page 2 of donation letter) and give them an easy way to get it back to you (return envelope with postage paid).

  4. As you receive the sponsor donor forms back in the mail, record donor’s on your Tally Sheet.  Don’t forget to record their address. You will need that to send your tax-deductible thank-you letter.

  5. At the Practice-A-Thon on January 18th, we will be spending the first part of the lock-in collecting money and having you fill out and send out thank you notes.
