Each family has the opportunity to subsidize fair share with student account fundraising. Any amount raised from these opportunities will go directly towards the student’s account and applied toward the next fair share payment. Student Fair Share pays for travel (transportation, lodging, meals), show design, instruction/staff, uniform/costume maintenance, props, equipment, truck rental/maintenance, and field maintenance.



Enjoy top-name artists while earning money towards your Fair Share! The Summer Concert series at Walnut Creek draws thousands of attendees from April through October. The Green Hope Band is charged with staffing three beverage stands at these events. Student accounts are usually credited $75 – $90 per concert worked.

Working times are generally 5pm – 11pm. We only have opportunity for approx. 10 people at each event so it’s important to sign up early. Prior to working, you must attend Team Training, a free 2-hour course offered by the NC Alcohol Commission.

The next TEAM training will occur June 25th at 6:00 PM at the Walnut Creek amphitheater. It will be an outdoor training so please be prepared for the weather. This may be the last training this concert season. Please plan to attend if you would like to volunteer at Walnut Creek this year.

You already buy groceries… earn money while you shop! For every $100 you spend, you’ll earn 5% from Food Lion or 6% from Lowe’s Foods. (NOTE: 90% of earnings go to Student Account / 10% goes to GHHS Band Boosters.) This is applied directly toward your student account. Many families earn up to $500 towards their student account.

Each year between July and September, Green Hope Band sells GoPlaySave books. Each book contains great offers from many local merchants. We ask all GHHS band students and their families to participate in this fundraiser. Books retail for $30. For each book sold, 45% of the retail price ($13.50) is credited to your student account.

Encourage friends, family, and neighbors to purchase a GoPlaySave Book to help you earn money for your account. Books are available in soft-cover as well as online/mobile!
