On Saturday, August 27, 2016, the Elder Band held its 1st Annual Mattress Sale.  A mattress “showroom” with quality brand name mattresses was set up at Elder in the Schaeper Center.  Proceeds from every mattress sold that day benefited the Elder Band and those students who had referrals.

The Band set a record that day, becoming the largest seller of mattresses in the 9 years that Ultimate Fundraising Solutions (UFS) has been hosting this type of event, selling 105 mattresses and 10 adjustable beds in just one day!

To recognize the Band’s effort, during halftime at an Elder football game, representatives from UFS -- Bert Harbin, Debbie Harbin, Chris Harbin, Keith Glass and Elizabeth Herzog -- presented Band Director Steve Geis and Booster President Tracy Rottenberger with a check in the amount of $15,000. This set a record sale for UFS!

Ultimate Fundraising Solutions has been working with 50+ local schools annually since 2008, and has helped raise almost one million dollars locally!  “We are excited to work with Elder to help them reach their fundraising goals!”
