How We Raise Funds

This festival is a community event put on by the Berne Union Music Boosters. We are proud to bring the Fireworks to Sugar Grove every year. We need your help to make this possible. Here’s some things you can do to help us pay for the expenses of this community event and THEN raise some much needed funds to operate our award winning music programs
  1. Park in our lots! (Your $5 parking donation helps pay for the fireworks)
  2. Buy some raffle tickets! We have a Mega 50/50. Winners have taken home over $2500 AND our Major Basket Raffle which offers a chance at winning everything from gift card packages to a complete set of porch furniture.
  3. Eat from our indoor cafeteria!
  4. Drop some change in our TUBA BELL located near the Main Entrance of the school. Imagine how much the Boosters would benefit from everyone dropping a $1 donation in our bell!
