WBDC Booster Club

So many exciting things going on!
Did you know ALL families, not just Company, are welcome to participate in Booster Club Activities?  We hope all families join (it's FREE)!

The Gertens Easter and Spring Flower sale is now underway.  NEW THIS YEAR... is a separate selling for Easter Lilies and bulbs.

Please see the links below for all information needed. We will not have any copies at the desk. Please print from WBDC website or this email.

You will only turn in ONE sheet per sale (one for Easter lilies and one for spring flowers) with the total number of each type of plant you want.  We do not need (or want) the order of who you sold too, you should keep that for delivery.  Please do your best to print neatly on this and turn in only 1 order sheet per sale.  Please make sure your dancers name is on the form(s) you turn in!!  This really helps us with ordering and sorting at delivery time.   Please submit 1 check with all the $$s for your orders.  This means have all your family/friends pay you and then write the full check to WBDC Booster Club.

Booster Club Payment/Tax Credit Changes beginning January 2019

WBDC Booster Club is making a few accounting changes beginning January 2019.  

1. Credits can not be saved for future charges, but will always be assigned to the next open charge on your WBDC account.   Please always remember that it takes a few weeks before a fundraiser's check has cleared and the payments can actually be applied to a WBDC account.   Please do not plan on any specific fundraiser to fulfill a payment, espeically with a close deadline, in order to prevent any late fees or missed payments.

2. We will not be having a Booster option A or B anymore.   Booster credits will go to next open charge.  Therefore, anyone using Booster Club credits will not be eligible to ask WBDC for a tax statement to claim dance tuition.   WBDC will still produce tax statements for those Booster Club eligible families for 2018, but beginning 2019 it will not be an option.


Lots of other information is available on the Booster ClubWebpage!
