Butterbraid and Pizza Fundraiser!
Our fall Butterbraid fundraiser just got better! In addition to Butterbraids this year, we have agreed to include pizza by Luige's. Butterbraids are always a popular fundraiser especially during this time of year. Several parents have said many people purchase for easy entertaining options during the holidays. The pizzas are new for the company we work with and they have asked that we include the option for our sellers. We will still be selling Heggie's pizzas at the end of January, for those who want to participate.

Dates for Butterbraid/pizza fundraiser: Now until October 30th. All orders and payment must be turned in on October 30th.

Payment for purchases should be made out to the seller's family, with the family making 1 check out to WBDC Boosters. Please change order forms to reflect payment should be made out to the seller. Cash can also be handed in.

Delivery will be November 18th at the studio. Time to be determined. This delivery date is SO important, because these are FROZEN products and must be picked up ASAP.

Profit for your dancer will be between 35-40%
