Concord High School Band holding unique fundraiser


Car washes, cookies, popcorn.  We've all seen students using these methods to fundraise.  But the Concord High School band did something a little different Saturday.  They were holding a mattress sale to raise money for their trip to New York City later this year where they'll be playing in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  The trip will cost over $1,000 dollars per student.

The school's Director of Music, Scott Spradling, said the mattress sale was an appealing fundraising technique.  "The thing I like about it is it's not a door to door event for the kids.  It's not selling people things they don't need.  Because everybody needs a mattress and we were surprised to find out how often people need mattresses," said Spradling.

The mattresses were being sold for less than retail price.  They range in cost from $200-$2,000.  The students get a portion of the sales for their trip.
