FUNDRAISING

In order to provide this opportunity and keep costs down for individual students, it is important that every member of the Campbell Music Family support the CAMPA group and individual fundraisers in some way. 

BINGO'S

Working at the Campbell Bingo's is a great individual fundraiser that benefits every family directly.  Please contact Maureen Pennington at maupennington@gmail.com if you are interested in earning money at upcoming bingos!   Each person earns $50.00 toward his or her individual TRP fundraising account.  Therefore, if you have 4 people working one bingo for you, you can earn $200.00 toward your fundraising account in one bingo evening!  

Please keep checking the CAMPA website for news about other great fundraising opportunities!
