  • Get in the driver’s seat for band uniform fundraiser Oct 22, 2014 8:13 PM
    The Geneva High School band program has received a very generous offer from not one, but two local supporters to participate in an easy, no-cost, no-effort fundraiser from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25. Fox Valley Buick/GMC is sponsoring the “Buick Drive for Your Students” fundraiser on Saturday. All you have to do is come to the high school and test drive a new Buick. In exchange for the quick drive around the block Buick will donate $10 to Geneva High School’s campaign to purchase new band uniforms. The Buick donation is $10 per person for the first 100 people who take a test drive. After reaching 101, the donation increases to $20 per drive, including the first 100 test drives, so when we reach 101 $2,000 will have already been raised. Geneva High School has the potential to earn up to $10,000 from Buick.
