The IMA is partnering with Yankee Candle® Fundraising, which has something for everyone, including a variety of candles, décor, home fragrance and kitchen products–some start at under $10! Best of all, our organization will earn up to 45% PROFIT ON EVERY SALE!
This fundraiser will be available through a catalog sold by students and last until March 2. However, this fundraiser also will be available online for those family members and friends who live outside of the area through July 8, 2020.
One full week into the March Forth campaign, your generosity has helped us raise over $1,200, which is over 10% of our goal of raising $10,000 by March 4! The IMA thanks you. The staff of the Instrumental Music Program of Easton Area High School thanks you. And, our students thank you “in person…”
With three weeks left in the campaign, please spread the word to friends, family members, and business connections. Any donation amount is appreciated and all donations to the campaign are tax deductible.
Each year, our EAHS Instrumental Music Department sponsors a Spaghetti Dinner. This event brings in families and community members to our high school cafeteria for a wonderful meal together. The dinner includes salad, rolls, spaghetti, dessert, and assorted beverages. Our high school orchestras provide the music throughout the dinner, each year choosing a different theme, while our band students will act as your servers. This year, our theme is “Through The Decades,” and encompasses music from a variety of eras and genres.
Date: Saturday, February 22
Time: Doors open at 5:30 p.m.; meal and performances begin at 6 p.m.
Location: Easton Area High School Cafeteria
Rehearsal: All 8th grade and high school orchestra students report no later than 3:45 p.m. There will also be a small treat for the students in between the rehearsal and the performance.
Tickets: Adults, $8; Children 12 and under/adults 65 and over, $6; Adults at the door, $10; student-performers are free
Calling all 8th grade orchestra students
New this year, we are inviting members of the 8th grade orchestra to perform with our high school orchestra on this night. We want your child to be a part of this great opportunity so they can experience being a part of our high school orchestra. Your child will be given two pieces of music ahead of time to learn to play along with us. Following their performance, they are free to enjoy the meal!
Want to volunteer or donate? Have other questions?
As we strive to create one of the nation’s finest music programs, we are kicking off a new fundraiser called March Forth. This fundraiser will last through March 4th, which is known as “National Marching Band Day.” As our program grows, we want to continue to be able to provide EVERY student with the tools they need to be successful. Please consider donating to our first annual EAHS “Red Rover” Band and Orchestra March Forth campaign.
What is the March Forth campaign?
We are opening the March Forth fundraiser for one month, with a goal of $10,000 in unrestricted funds. It seems like a large sum of money, but if every student in the program found $30 worth of sponsors, we would exceed our goal! All donations are tax deductible.
It costs a substantial amount of money to not only maintain, but also to grow a quality music program. With your help, we hope to purchase some of the following in the near future:
New classroom sound system – $3,000
Replacement of chimes – $3,000
Marching band sound system – $2,000
New cello(s) – $2,000 each
Sousaphone – $7,000 each
Marching bell sets & cases – $1,000 each
Concert tuba – $6,000 each

Donate and spread the word about March Forth to help us reach our campaign goal.
