FUNDRAISING BUYOUT OPTION
VFSC does offer a Fundraising Buyout Option.  The purpose of this option is to allow families to forgo actual “selling/group service” if that is not preferred, while still ensuring the member is financially contributing to the expenses covered by fundraising dollars.  The current buyout fee is:

            Junior Club - $300.00 ($200 individual and $100 group fundraising)

            Senior Club - $400.00 ($200 individual and $200 group fundraising)

This fee is non-refundable.  Any additional fundraising is appreciated and will go directly to VFSC for the benefit of all members. 

If a member does not meet the fundraising requirement by 2/18/17, the skater will be assessed a buyout fee for the shortfall.

ADDITIONAL FUNDRAISING
VFSC members are encouraged to participate in the optional fundraising opportunities, including the Holiday Bake Sale and Annual Show ticket sales.  If you have any other fundraiser ideas or would like to be a part of the fundraising committee, please let a board member know.  Remember, all of our efforts benefit our skaters!

 

***Reality Roasters Coffee will count towards your individual fundraising goal at $2 per pound sold.
