On Sunday, February 5 we will be hosting our 4th annual Mattress Fundraiser right here at the BHS Commons from 10am to 5pm. This one-day sale features top brand mattresses, pillows, sheets and more from Simmons Beautyrest, Therapedic, Englander, and more. The prices are well below retail because they order directly from the manufacturer, there is no retail space overhead and advertising expenses are minimal. Plus, they deliver!
This event has raised $5,000-$7,000 to help support BPA’s coaching, scholarships and more at Ballard High School’s Performing Arts programs, so this is an important event to our bottom line–spread the word.
Our fundraising partner (CFSBeds) does all the hard work for us, turning the Ballard Commons into a mattress showroom for the day! People will find all the same products they would find at a traditional mattress store. 30 different floor models will be on display for customers to try. All models are available in all sizes, are made to order, and come with full factory warranties just like a store and there's a comfort guarantee. Adjustable power bases, pillows, sheets, frames and mattress protectors will also be available.
Delivery and haulaway are available and all forms of payment are accepted and there's even financing and a free layaway available to anyone who needs it.
Best of all – the Ballard Performing Arts Boosters makes money on each and every purchase, earning roughly 50% of the net profits from the event! If you are buying through a BPA student, make sure they get credit for the sale by providing their name at the sale. For mattresses, each student gets $50.00. (If you have more than one student in the BPA program, this amount would be split.)
What we need from ALL BALLARD PERFORMING ARTS FAMILIES:
We are asking every Ballard Performing Arts family to find one person in the market for a new mattress and get them to come check out this event. 10% of the population will buy a new mattress this year; why shouldn't they at least come see what's available through this event? If they find what they are looking for the chances are they'll save money or get a better product, get better service than at a store, and they support Ballard Performing Arts in the process!!!
Please talk to everyone you know!
