VMAPA Holiday Gift Wrap-a-palooza Fundraiser is Back!

Nov 1, 2018 | News

‘Tis the season to be jolly and help raise funds for Vanguard Music and Performing Arts! Once again, we are getting in the Holiday spirit by gearing up for our annual Gift Wrap-a-Palooza Fundraiser, and we need your help! We will be having our VMAPA Gift Wrapping Booth at Westfield Valley Fair Mall starting December 1st and continuing through Christmas Eve, December 24. This opportunity is a fantastic way for alumni to give back to the organization and for students to earn valuable volunteer service hours.

This year we are raffling off a special prize for volunteers who help with gift wrapping! For every 3-hour shift you complete, your name will be entered into a drawing to win 4 SKYBOX TICKETS TO DCI WEST IN 2019. The more shifts you work, the more chances you have to win – so please sign-up at the link below, and let’s spread some Holiday cheer through the power of gift wrapping!
