Gardner Pie Fundraiser
What: Gardner Pie Fundraiser
When: October 4 through November 3, 2023
Who: Austintown Fitch Marching Band
Why: The Thanksgiving Pie sale is a general fundraiser for the Band Parents Organization for 6th graders and an individual trip account fundraiser for 7th through 12th graders.
Over past years we held Pie Sales prior to Thanksgiving selling over 1700 pies! You can sell these not only for Thanksgiving but encourage your buyers to put a couple in the freezer for Christmas, too.
We will once again sell pies from Gardner Pie Company in Akron. It is a family business that has been in operation since 1945. The Band Parents Board members over the past years have tested multiple pies, so we can give you our personal endorsement that we think you could pass these pies off to your family as something you made yourself! The pies come frozen, ready to bake with instructions. The pies this year are 10 inch pies and we will sell them for $14 per pie. There are 7 different selections.
The selections are: Cherry, Very Berry, Peach, Pumpkin, Pecan, Apple and Apple Walnut Caramel. The best news is that our profit margin will be about good, but there are incentives that if we sell 250, 500 or 1,000 pies the profit margin can increase up higher.
IMPORTANT TO ADD TO THE ORDER FORM: Fill in “Cost per pie” as $14 and check “Frozen (with baking instructions)” the “Delivery information,” we will have the pies for pick up at Stand 1 on Saturday November 18th. Time to be announced. You can decide on how you will distribute to your buyers and fill in the blank accordingly.
