Each year, the Iowa City Music Auxiliary hosts a Car Wash to raise money for ICCSD band, choir, and orchestras. Because of the pandemic, we canceled the physical fall car wash and we are bringing a new and different kind of fundraiser!
This year, we are selling bags and jugs of salt to melt the ice on your sidewalks and driveways this winter!
To order, visit http://iowacitymusicauxiliary.org/salt/
Costco has partnered with us to provide a socially distant fundraiser! Salt Pre-orders will be taken online in October. Then, patrons will pick up their salt on November 10th, at Costco in Coralville. Parent and Student Volunteers wearing masks will load up the salt using our easy carline pick up in the Costco parking garage.
The funds raised will help purchase sheet music, equipment, PPE, entry fees, and more – for music students from 5th–12th grade. Our goal is to raise $25,000 with this fundraiser.
During the school closure last March-April, we held a contest for ICCSD students to design a new logo for the Music Auxiliary. We received several wonderful submissions from across the district, and a winner has been selected.
Congratulations and thank you to Angelica Hamilton from South East Junior High! This fantastic logo is already in use in our letters and web/social media pages.
In light of continued uncertainties regarding the pandemic and how the school opening will unfold this year, we are postponing the Iowa City Music Auxiliary Annual Car Wash, which had been scheduled for August 29th.
Many thanks to all who had signed for this undertaking. Hopefully we’ll be able to proceed later during the school year, once conditions are again safe. Stay Tuned!
NEW Extended Contest Deadline: April 15th, 2020
The Iowa City Music Auxiliary is inviting all K-12 ICCSD students to participate in our logo contest. The winning logo will be featured online, in print materials, on merchandise (like t-shirts), and more! This logo represents all parent supporters of music students across Iowa City, North Liberty, and Coralville!
Here are some fantastic resources for creating an amazing logo, including great FREE online resources for designing at home!
