Cookie Dough/Popcorn Sale Extended to Thursday, March 24

Close your eyes, sit back and imagine the smell of fresh cookies baking in the oven. Then, think about the ease of just scooping the pre-made cookie dough out of the tub and putting it on the baking sheet, with no other preparation. Or when you are watching a movie and want to have some popcorn, but you do not want to make it. No worries, if you have already-made delicious popcorn on hand.

Yes, it can be that simple. All you have to do is order your favorite tubs of cookie dough and popcorn. The rest is easy. You have great tasting cookies and popcorn with very little effort.

We need your help. At this point, we are significantly below our goal. Please submit your orders with payment by March 24. They can be turned in to the Fine Arts Office, band or choir mailbox, or to one of the Fine Arts teachers.

Each item is $12. Checks are to be made out to Downers Grove South Fine Arts. Need an order form? Click here to print an order form.

Remember, the purpose of this fundraiser is to provide scholarship money for any eligible DGS Fine Arts student.

Thank you for supporting DGS Fine Arts. If you have any questions, you can contact Nancy Segredo at (630) 971-2106 or at segredojm(at)aol(dot)com.
