The MDI Music Boosters are a dedicated and active group who offer multiple fundraising opportunities every year. Money collected during fundraising efforts go into students' personal music accounts and/or the Boosters' general account to help support various music department programs and activities. These fundraisers include:
PEP Coffee Sales When: Early 2022 PEP Coffee sales - sell bags of Giving Bean coffee with our very own logo. $5/bag goes right into your student account.
MDI Marathon Pre-Race Pasta Dinner The MDI Marathon was canceled by the organizer, this event will not be hosted in 2021-2022
Citrus Sale Each year in November Fresh delicious oranges, grapefruit, and apples from Florida are ordered in November and delivered before the December break. See any music student or Music Booster for ordering information. Students can earn up to $10 per box of citrus sold, with earnings going to their Student Account.
Returnable Bottle Collection Boxes (Ongoing/Year-round) The Music Boosters have two returnable collection sites on Mount Desert Island. In 2021-2022, there will be opportunities for students to sign up to maintain the bottle boxes - and earn money for their student accounts while doing so. Our contracted collector will haul the bottles, but it is exceptionally helpful for the loose bottles to be placed into bags and for garbage to removed up to two times per week. The Music Boosters will announce more information about this program after the October 2021 meeting.
