Traverse City Chapter

We had 5 quartets out most of the day at $45.00 each Valentine.  Al Fisk helped us by pre-qualify our quartets with a score of 50 or better.  We sang in homes, Banks, Adult Foster Care Homes, Restaurants, Auto Dealerships, Non-Profit Groups etc.  We're definitely considering an increase in price for next year.

We provided a "booking office" phone number at one of our members homes and a Web Site order form.  Payments were by Credit card, Check, Cash & COD.  Regular sales were confined to a 4 hour time frame.  For those who needed an exact time (+/- 15 minutes) we charged an extra $20.00.

Near Record Valentine Year

Greg Fiebing, President
Cherry Capital Chorus 

We sang over 100 Valentines. 

Our promotion consisted primarily of PSA's on radio & cablevision, Cold Calls and "Word of Mouth".  

We advertised 1 song, a rose, a card and a Poloroid photo of the event within 10 mile radius limit.  Extras were $10.00 each although we sang many extra songs at no additional $.

Our compitition included Sweet Adelines, and 2 High School groups.  Extra effort this year brought about a near record year for Valentine Sales which are our 2nd largest fund raiser  for the year. 

Preliminary reports indicate that all had fun and can't wait until next year to do it again.

2008 -- Commitment, Hard Work, Great Chorus!
