We will be hosting our 4th Annual Mattress Sale Fundraiser on Sunday, May 2, 2021. SME Band has raised about $20,000 with these events and we are excited for another successful year!
How does it work? The fundraising company will bring a mobile mattress showroom to our gym with about 30 floor models for customers to try. ALL PRODUCTS ARE NEW, available in all sizes, and cost 30-50% less than retail stores. Brands include Wellsville, Therapedic, Southerland, Intellibed, and more. In addition to beds, there will also be premium pillows, mattress protectors, luxury sheets, and adjustable power bases. Financing options and delivery are available as well.
What do we need to do? ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS PROMOTE! 1 in 4 families will replace a bed in their home this year, we need each SME Band member and their family to find at least two people who are in the market for a mattress and encourage them to come to the event. That’s all – our students and parents will NOT be selling, filling out order forms, collecting money, or delivering anything!
Why is promoting so important? Most people go to a store to buy a mattress. We NEED our SME Band families to let the community know that they can come here on May 2ndto get a mattress. Take a minute to ask around the office, at church, or with your family and neighbors. You won’t believe how many people are currently planning to replace a bed in their home. It’s important to start talking about it now so that people will hold off their purchase until our event! This is a unique opportunity for them to buy something they need while also supporting our program. Personal referrals drive most of the sales at our event, so 100% participation is critical to success.
