The tuition that families pay to participate only covers approximately 32% of the cost of our operations. The remainder must be raised annually through donations, grants, ticket sales, and fundraising events. The AYSP Board of Directors, in collaboration with staff, have organized a fantastic fundraising opportunity that also promotes our new signature fundraising event, the Burque Derby: A Kentucky Derby Bash.
AYSP is raffling off a once-in-a-lifetime Kentucky Derby package for two that includes: two tickets to the 2017 Kentucky Oaks (Friday, May 5, 2017), and the 2017 Kentucky Derby (Saturday, May 6, 2017) with food and beverage service; roundtrip airfare to Louisville, Kentucky from the Albuquerque International Sunport; and hotel accommodations for three nights in Louisville, Kentucky.
This evening, your student will be bringing home a Parent Letter and an Opt In/Opt Out Form which needs to be completed and returned at the rehearsal on Monday, January 25th. We will be distributing raffle tickets and instructions next week at rehearsals to the students who have turned in their form indicating that they are participating in the fundraiser.
We’re hoping we can count on you to raise valuable support for AYSP so we can continue to further our mission of instilling a lifelong passion for music in motivated people in the Albuquerque area through the pursuit of excellence in orchestral music performance.
Thank you for your consideration and for your support of AYSP. If you have any questions regarding the form or the raffle, please let us know.
We rely on donations from generous individuals and businesses like you to provide symphonic performance experiences to Albuquerque’s talented young musicians and access to music education for students in need.
