Important Policy Changes for sodexo - Please Read!
Due to recent increase in last minute cancellations and/or no call/no shows, we are implementing a new policy for sodexo events.
While we understand unexpected emergencies arise, we would like to keep unnecessary cancellations to a minimum as it creates a tremendous amount of work for the chairs in trying to find replacements not to mention puts us in jeopardy of loosing these extremely valuable fundraisers as each organization has requested a certain number of people to work for a particular event-they are counting on us for help.
Effective immediately-please make sure you are ABSOLUTELY without a doubt, able to work an event prior to signing up. If you have a true emergency, please give as much notice as possible. Otherwise, if you cancel or are a no call/no show- charges will be applied to your students' accounts.
For example, sodexo: $40.00 (the amount may vary) If you are signed up and you have to cancel, you must find your own replacement. Otherwise, if you fail to do so or you are a no call/no show-your account will be charged $40.00 (the amount may vary).
We appreciate your understanding in this matter. If you have any questions please feel free to contact myself or any board member.

SODEXO CONCESSION STAND FUNDRAISER AT SCHOTTENSTEIN CENTER
Cell Phone: 614-403-7412
PAY: $40.00 per person for concession stands.
$6.50 per hour for carts.
Note: Please allow 4-6 weeks after the event to be credited to your account.
What is involved with concession stands?
sodexo is a fundraiser available to WHS marching band/color guard students and their parents and involves working concession stands during sports events and concerts at the Schottenstein Center. Transportation will be provided to and from most events.
Our group is assigned a concession stand up at the Schott in which we prepare and sell food items to guests. There is NO vending involved! The guests come to us instead of us hauling products around. The products will include soda, water, nachos, popcorn, hot dogs, pizza, sandwiches etc. Some events do involve selling alcohol. The pay includes $40.00 per person for concession stands and $6.50 per hour per person for a cart. The money is deposited directly into each student's account to be used towards various expenses for band.
If I or my student is interested in working, how do I sign up?
The easiest way for me to notify you of upcoming sodexo events is via email. If you wish to be on the contact list for sodexo, please either call me or email me (see my contact information above).
I will also have sign-up sheets in the band room and on the booster website for students to sign up to work. The sign up sheets will include the time for when we will meet at WHS for carpool, the time we have to be at the Schottenstein Center, the time when the gates are open to the public and when the actual event starts.
If you sign up to work an event, we will call you a week prior to the event to confirm as well as provide transportation and team leader information.
Due to the nature of the fundraiser, once you sign up for an event, you are responsible to work that event unless it is a true emergency.
In case of an emergency, we ask that you provide us with as much notice as possible, preferably at least 48 hours so that we can find a replacement for you.
