Concert Wardrobe Reminder
By now everyone should have been fitted for their concert wardrobe. Please double-check that all your pieces fit and contact us immediately if there are issues so we have time to correct in the next two weeks. Thank you!
Discount Coupons For
A Madison Symphony Christmas

The $5 discount coupons for A Madison Symphony Christmas are available at the Rehearsal Table each weekend throughout the fall as well as from the MYC office during business hours. One coupon may be used for multiple ticket purchases which means only one coupon is needed per family. As in past years, coupons can only be used in person at the Overture Center Box Office.
Poinsettias: Still Time to Order!
We have many plants available in various quantities across most sizes and colors and will continue to sell until our stock is sold out.  

The easiest way to place your order is via the electronic ordering forms. Again, plants are available until our stock is sold out! 

Consider contacting your church, your office, your neighbors, favorite restaurant, hotel, hair salon, etc. Ordering is easy! Families are credited $5/plant sold toward their fundraising contribution goal. 

Please note: orders need to be received by the MYC office at least two business days before your desired delivery or pick up date so Felly's has time to prepare your order. Questions? Please ask!
Sunshine in a Box: Fruit Sale
The Details:
  • Families earn $10 per box sold toward fundraising goal.
  • Orders, along with full payment, are due no later than Monday, November 28
  • Fruit is delivered on Saturday morning, December 10. If you sell, you are committing to picking up your fruit between 9am and 11am at the back entrance of Westgate Mall (freight elevator location) off of Tokay Blvd.
  • We are continuing the Food Pantry option in which your customers can purchase a box for the Middleton Outreach Ministry Food Pantry and MYC will deliver it.
