SIAM (Supporters In Area Music)
This is the single largest fundraiser for the music boosters and is a district-wide effort among all of the Lincoln-Way Music Booster organizations. The SIAM card is a discount card which can be used at hundreds of locations throughout the Lincoln-Way area. In August, the music students sell the cards door-to-door throughout all of the district communities. The cards are also available at all four high schools and select area businesses.

Butter Braids & Cookie Dough
A fundraiser which give students the opportunity to sell delicious treats to family and friends and raise money for their IBA’s.
Students are given a catalog of various items which family and friends can order from for later delivery. Profits go to the students’ IBA’s.
You and your friends and family can purchase gift cards for places you shop at on a regular basis or to give as gifts. Fundraiser materials will detail the percentage for each retailer that can be earned for the IBA.
Our most recent Spaghetti Dinner was held in December 2011 after the West Winterfest Concert. All proceeds from the dinner went toward the music booster general fund.
Friends and family can order from the Pampered Chef catalog or website and profits go to the student’s IBA.
West Fest began in March 2011. This event features over 100 crafters and vendors displaying their wares in the gym and main hallway of L-W West. In addition, local restaurants form the "food court" for the event in the school cafeteria, and school and community musical ensembles as well as other groups entertain shoppers and diners in the cafeteria. The third annual West Fest is scheduled for March 16, 2013.
Flats of high-quality flowers are sold with orders placed ahead of time and delivery shortly before Mother’s Day. This is another district-wide effort and also an IBA fundraiser.
Jazz Cafe transforms the LWW Cafeteria into our very own jazz club. The event features a professional musician along with the LWW Jazz Band and Jazz Choir as well as the New Lenox Jr. High Jazz Band. Coffee drinks, smoothies and desserts are available for purchase and a fantastic set of raffle prizes are offered.
The third annual car wash was held Saturday, June 25th, 2011. Students can raise money for their IBA accounts by soliciting donations prior to the car wash, and donations received during the car wash go to the music booster general fund.
What is an IBA?
Each student can establish an Individual Bank Account (IBA) with the boosters and profits from certain fundraisers are credited to the student’s account. The funds can then be used to pay band fees, trip expenses, etc.
