Be Part of Making it Happen!

We have events throughout the year and there is always an opportunity to help. Every year we work to raise money to reduce the costs of camps, trips, banquets, provide scholarships, and other expenses. This year we raised approximately $53,000! This money allowed a substantial discount be given to our members whose students participated in this year’s trip to Universal Studios.

Join us and support the programs and students in the PT music programs while meeting new people, connecting with the community, and trying excellent products and local establishments at the same time! We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all donations are tax deductible.

Lottery Calendar Fundraiser

View Complete Lottery Calendar Fundraiser Guide

Please plan to pick up your 5 Lottery Calendars at our October 20, 2022 Booster Meeting.  7pm in the LGI, Rm 341.

The Peters Township Music Boosters 8th Annual Lottery Calendar fundraiser is here! Proceeds from this fundraiser provide trip discounts for students of Booster members of ALL Music Departments and also fund yearly activities for all of our Music Students! Last year Boosters raised over $12,000.00. Let’s beat last year’s total!!

Each $25 Lottery Calendar offers 90 chances to win between $50 and $250 in the months of January, February, and March 2022 based on the Pennsylvania Lottery Pick 3 Evening Drawing. In addition to selling to co-workers, family (don’t forget out of towners) and friends, Lottery Calendars make GREAT gifts for those “hard to buy for” people on your holiday shopping list. Let the people you sell to know that we keep track of every sale based upon the info provided on the calendar stub, so make certain it’s legible and complete. Once you sell a lottery calendar and turn in the stub and money, Sellers have to do nothing!!!  Similarly, Winners don’t have to do anything if their number hits – just sit back and wait for their check!

Our goal is for every Booster family to sell at least 5 Lottery Calendars. Selling all 1,000 Lottery Calendars will raise roughly $18,000! Last year, one member sold 100 calendars. Can you beat that?

The Pie Place Fundraiser

This season we are working with the Pie Place in Upper St. Clair to bring homemade pies to you for the holidays.

Follow these links for pricing information and order form. Copies of the order forms will also be available in the music rooms next week.

Completed order forms and a check made payable to PT Music Boosters can be brought to the October Music Booster meeting (10/20) or dropped off at 109 Brandywine Drive, McMurray.  

Orders and checks are due Sunday, October 31st.

Please be sure to have your name, email, and phone number on your order form so we can reach you if there are questions.

Tips: All products can be frozen but if you know you are not going to eat the pies right away, purchase the frozen unbaked pies. Unbaked pies should be kept frozen until ready to bake.  Then bake at 400 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Instructions for baking pies will be on every pie.

Delivery will be Saturday, Nov 13th. More details on exact time and location will be provided in November.

Proceeds help us cover trips and PT Music Booster costs for ALL groups. Thank you for your participation!

PLEASE CONSIDER VOLUNTEERING TO ENSURE THAT THIS FUNDRAISER CAN CONTINUE.  Contact our Chairs: Lisa and Rick Rothhaar, rick.rothhaar@gmail.com lisa.rothhaar@gmail.com or call Rick at (412) 445-1083 to volunteer or just ask questions.


 Anything else?

  • 12 ounce cans of POP (Coke, Diet Coke, Dr. Sprite, Pepper, Diet Dr. Pepper and Orange Fanta)

Donations can be dropped off at 176 Bebout Road or 100 Meadowvue Court at your convenience.
