#1StudentNWI: March at Chesterton High


What has happened?

The Chesterton High School band hosted their Annual Mattress Fundraiser on March 17th at the Chesterton High School gym from 4pm to 9pm.

“This fundraiser is designed to bring in fundraising dollars to the Chesterton High School Band Department, spread among the Trojan Guard, concert bands, Winter Guard, percussion, and jazz ensembles,” said Band Director Adam Bess.

The fundraiser offered adjustable bed frames, pillows, and mattresses at all price points.

“This fundraiser is enjoyable over others because of the ease on the students’ parts,” said Bess. “The students don’t sell anything; there isn’t any product to be delivered, no knocking door-to-door for customers. We simply spread the word and attempt to get as many referrals as we can to help out our bands!”
