Alumni Family

Knightpride Families,

Some of you may remember Mr. Gerald Thomas, father of Lynette Hoffman and grandfather of Jessica, Abigail & Zachary.  I’m sorry to share the news that Gerald has passed away.  You may remember him as the grandpa who always had a good joke, or the “cookie salesman” at Art In Motion!   Jessica, Abigail & Zachary were members of Knightpride and Winterguard, and Craig & Lynette Hoffman were and still are proud supporters of the FHN Band & Guard programs.  Visitation is scheduled for this Thursday at Archway Memorial Chapel in Hazelwood from 4-7pm.  You may wish to contact Craig & Lynette at Lynandcraighoffman@yahoo.com  Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.

Benefit Mobile Fundraising

Introducing Benefit Mobile, another easy way to support the Francis Howell North Band Boosters!

You can donate to the general band fund, or to your favorite student’s FFC fund, without taking time out of your day, or going out of your way! We’ve teamed up with Benefit, a mobile app that allows you to instantly purchase digital gift cards to use online or in-store, at retailers including Walmart, Target, The Home Depot and Amazon, and many more. When you buy using the app, retailers contribute up to 20% of your transaction back to our school — so you don’t have to spend an extra cent!  Simply download the app and use it for your everyday purchases.

Get started with the instructions on the flyer attached.

You can choose 1 of 2 campaigns:  General Band Fundraising, or FFC Fundraising.

If you prefer you may direct proceeds to  Scholarship, Hardship, or Winterguard funds. To do this, select FFC Fundraising as the campaign and when it asks for ‘Student Name’, enter the fund you wish to support (Scholarship, Hardship, Winterguard).

Benefit does not replace scrip, but it doesn’t require you to order ahead of time, you use your mobile device, and many vendors allow you to purchase the exact amount you need to pay for your purchase. Scrip may still be the best option for local stores and percentages may be higher for some vendors.

If you have any questions, contact Vicky Balleydier at fundraising@fhnbands.com to learn more.
