Christmas Shrimp Fundraising --- to be picked up on Saturday Dec 20, 2014

We are continuing our successful shrimp fundraiser again for Christmas. We had a few parents who said they wanted shrimps but didn't know of the buying event for Thanksgiving. We are going to serve food anyways, why not serve shrimp where we can get really good quality food at a really good price while helping to make a little money for the Orchestra and support our kids love for music. We have added a little bag by the 2 lb bag for $25 per bag option this time. One doesn't have to buy by the case (5 bags for $100 = 1 case or 1 box) but if one do buy by the case, it's a little cheaper. Ordered by 12-16-14, Tuesday, and picked up at the Parking Lot of PAC on Saturday 12-20-14 at 10:00 a.m. Complete the order form and/or notify David Chan by either email at parkybake@me.com or call at (626)975-1106 for your shrimp order.
