Regional Magazine Fundraiser

Have you gone to IC? Are you planning on going this year? What about Summer Programs? Ever think they may be a little too expensive? Well you’re in luck!

Wisconsin Region is fundraising for scholarships for both of these things! Region members are asked to support the fundraiser by selling as many magazine subscriptions and renewals as possible!

Click here for more information.

Catalogs, and order forms are available in the offices, and online. But there is more!

The top 3 selling Alephs, and top 3 selling BBGs will win prizes… half off WRC? An awesome retro piece of BBYO clothing? Marcus Movie passes?

If you have any questions, ask a regional board member or Rachael or Dani.

We are determined to admit as many members into IC 2013 as we can!
