Care Card partnership
what is care card
The Board of Visitor's Care Card program has grown to become Arizona's largest retail fundraising event. Shoppers have the opportunity to purchase a $60 Care Card granting them 20% discount at hundreds of local retailers and restaurants in a 10-day shopping period each October. 100% of the net proceeds from Care Card sales go directly to a selected beneficiary each year.
In 2023 the Chaparral Band Boosters made the decision to join their profit-sharing pilot program and contribute to the organization's efforts to raise funds for this year's beneficiary - The Big Pink Bus. In return, the boosters will receive 50% of the net profit generated by cards sold to patrons using our unique link or QR code.
For each Care Card sold using the Band Booster unique link/QRC $30 will go toward supporting The Big Pink Bus, and $30 will go to the booster to address unmet financial needs for the band program.
How does it work
Sales open on September 20, 2023.
Ask family, friends and neighbors to support by purchasing a $60 Care Card via Chaparral Marching Band unique link or QR code. Care Card is delivered immediately after purchase via email.
Patrons can use the QR code at participating locations between October 20-29 and enjoy 20% off popular retailers and restaurants around Scottsdale and the Valley.
