Yes, it’s that time of year again to think about selling chocolate….Fundraising is an important task for the Bexar County 4-H Program.
The money raised is used to pay for the pins and medals your members receive at the Awards Program in August. It helps to reimburse members for entry fees who attend District contests and much more.
What does a club get out of selling chocolate???? For every case of chocolate sold, your club receives a rebate of $12 a case. Members can compete for awards. Selling $60 or more they receive a 4-H Brag Tag (dog tag) with chain, $180 or more will receive a 1 pound chocolate bar, $300 or more will receive a prize (to be announced) and if you sell $420 or over you are eligible for the Highest Seller Awards (3rd place – $100, 2nd place – $150, 1st place – $250 gift card).
The Pizza Party Chocolate Pickup night will be Tuesday, September 26th at 6:00 p.m. here at our office in S-208. A representative from your club should attend this party to pick up your club chocolate. Have some pizza while we are going over information about the sale. If you need to pick up the chocolate prior to 6:00 p.m., please call about 2 p.m. and we can let you know if it has been delivered. Reminder, we have no extra space to store chocolate.
You do not pay for the chocolate in advance, money will be due to our office Friday, November 3rd. Rebate checks will be issued to your club in late November.
Our suggestion is to set up to sell your chocolate at a Walmart, Sam’s, etc. on a weekend. Anywhere you have seen Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts or any other youth program should allow you to set up for a couple of hours. Call the businesses as soon as possible to reserve a date convenient for your club. Dates fill up fast because there are other youth programs selling their items this time of year. If you have any questions, please let us know.
