A New National Record!

Back to School and Back to Work; The Allen Eagle Escadrille Sells a Record 147 Mattresses

Welcome back to school! Custom Fundraising Solutions hopes this year will be your best yet! It’s already ours! We are proud to announce that Custom Fundraising Solutions has officially given back over $14 million dollars to schools, teams, and groups across the country via the Mattress Fundraiser.

Last month, the Allen Eagle Escadrille, the “Biggest Band in the Land”, hosted their first mattress fundraiser with Custom Fundraising Solutions of North Texas (CFS of North Texas.) The Escadrille’s fundraiser made history, selling 147 mattresses and breaking the current national record. Their efforts, those of the Booster Club and the community support helped the Eagle Escadrille earn an impressive $25,650.  

All funds raised by the 147 mattresses sold will support their upcoming trip to the Rose Parade® next January in Pasadena, California! Families and individuals from all over browsed the mattress showroom set up in the Allen High School Band Hall. Each of the 147 purchases supported the Escadrille’s upcoming trip to the New Year’s Day Rose Parade.

Part of what made the fundraiser such a success was the student’s involvement! Check out this great promotional video made by the Escadrille band!

Joe Matejka, founder and President of Custom Fundraising Solutions was present at the record-breaking fundraiser. “We averaged selling one mattress every 4 minutes over a 9 hour period. It really got us excited to see the community support such a great group of hard-working kids, all while getting a quality product they need at a great price. That is why we are in this business…to help the kids!”  Custom Fundraising Solutions congratulates the Allen Eagle Escadrille for their hard work and dedication during the fundraiser and wish you all the best of luck in January!
