Over the next several weeks, we will kick off a number of popular and historically successful student fundraisers. These fundraisers apply all profit from sales to the student’s band account, effectively reducing the amount that a family pays “out-of-pocket.” These coming fundraisers include Butterbraids PastriesHoneybaked Ham productstamales from La Hacienda Products, and Cozzzy Comfy sheets.

HoneyBaked Ham fundraiser

We are pleased to announce our most popular student fundraiser of the year, HoneyBaked Ham products!

An order form can be downloaded here, and 20 percent of sales go to your student’s band account. Orders are due by Monday, Oct. 30, in order to ensure delivery before Thanksgiving break. Simply insert checks made payable to Johnson Band, along with your order form, in a sealed envelope, write HoneyBaked Ham on the outside of the envelope, and drop it in the Band Box by the deadline. We cannot accept cash.

Products come frozen, so you can order now for all of your holiday needs. If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Foote ( or Craig LaVigne (

Butterbraids Fundraiser Begins

It’s time for Butterbraids! For those who have ordered or tasted these pastries in the past, they are terrific. The only change this year is that they have replaced Bavarian Cream with a new pastry, Four Cheese & Herb.

Pastries cost $13 each, except for the Four Cheese & Herb ($14). Students’ band accounts receive $5.50 ($5.85 for Four Cheese & Herb) from each product sold.

The pastries will be delivered frozen, so they can be thawed, baked and enjoyed right away, or they can be kept frozen and saved for holiday treats, parties, etc.!

Download this order form. Simply place the order form and check(s) payable to Johnson Band in an envelope marked “Butterbraids” and deposit it in the band box no later than Monday, Oct. 16. We must place the order by 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 17, so this is a firm deadline. We cannot accept cash. Delivery is expected on or near Wednesday, Nov. 1.

Please contact Jeff Foote ( or Craig LaVigne ( with any questions.

Join the CTJ 25-200 Club

The 25/200 Club is an EASY way to financially support the Johnson Band on a monthly basis! Here is how it works: 200 people giving at least $25 a month! That would provide the band $300 per year, per person OR $60,000 per year if 200 people sign up! $60,000 per year will go a LONG WAY in supporting the Johnson Band! EVERY dollar raised goes directly back to the band program!
