Fundraising Information


The Performing Arts Boosters raises money through Power Cat Painting during the football season and a fall Four Season fundraiser, which includes the sale of fruit, meat, cheese, candy, nuts and cookie dough. We also raise funds through our Little Caesars Pizza fundraiser in the spring. These funds are used in many ways. Some recent uses include; the continued support of our band and choir students through paid clinicians that work with our Carlisle students directly; instruments; sheet music for the band and choir; funding for all-state camps and the Raccoon River Conference festival; and any items on the directors’ wish lists.  In addition, our fundraising efforts allow the Boosters to donate money into each student and chaperone accounts and supply meals for the 2022 Spring Break Trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
