Popcorn Palace’s fundraising program just got better! If this is your first time here, welcome to our new blog! As you’ve probably noticed, in the last week we announced and launched our new-look logo, website, tag line (A Heavenly Experience) and packaging.

With the rebranding comes a NEW fundraising program that makes it even easier and more profitable for organizations to raise funds.

Program Highlights:

  • 50% Profit on Every Item:  Fundraisers can now earn 50% profit on the snack bags, value bags, jars, Signature Tin, 6-way and 6-Flavor Gift Set
  • New Products & New Flavor Names:  The 6-Flavor Gift Set and the Signature Tin, 6-way are two new items available to organizations.  In addition, the popcorn flavor names have changed to reflect the new branding
  • Simplified Product Line: In addition to the Signature Tin, 6-way and 6-Flavor Gift Set,  the new form has 8 of our popular flavors to ensure maximum sales
  • Shorter and Simpler Order Form:  The form layout has changed based upon feedback from fundraising coordinators. The new form allows the participant to cut off the bottom portion so the coordinators have a copy of all orders

As always, our fundraising program has no up-front costs, no minimum orders and the experienced staff are ready to help with all of your fundraising questions and needs.

Popcorn Palace, as you can see, has rebranded, retooled and reimagined everything from our logo and website to our flavor selections and fundraising program. And to celebrate the new Popcorn Palace, we’re giving one lucky person an entire year’s supply of popcorn (a one year subscription to the Popcorn Palace Flavor Calendar Club).

HERE’S How to Enter:

Each one of our first 365 tins of popcorn ordered has a QR code on it inside the tin lid. All you need to do is use your handy QR Scanner (Just search for “QR Reader” in your smart phone app store/marketplace) to scan the code and you’ll get shot off to our entry form. That means that there are only 365* chances to enter.

Good luck!

December’s “Pictures are Worth a Thou$and Dollars” Winner: Midwestern Christian Academy

8 Jan

Serving as an educational ministry of Midwest Bible Church, MCA has provided a balanced traditional academic program with a Christian emphasis for over 50 years.  MCA is focused on developing the whole child. Recognized and accredited by the Illinois State Board of Education and the Association of Christian Schools International, MCA’s purpose is to provide a quality education, while challenging students to develop physically, intellectually, spiritually, and socially.

In addition to the recent advances in curriculum, MCA also offers extracurricular activities such as: girls and boys basketball, girls volleyball, boys soccer, drama, puppets, band, computer, music, and choir.  All curriculum, activities, and programs are under the guidance of God and His Holy Word.

“Our fundraising goal for the popcorn sale was $20,000.  As a school, we did extremely well and raised over $19,000,” said Joseph Scifo. “The profits of this fundraiser will be going toward the rehabilitation of our school kitchen.  The kitchen has been  neglected for far too long, and is in desperate need of new appliances, storage shelves, sink basins, plumbing, flooring, and other structural improvements.”
