Applause! Bulb Sale Student Fundraiser is Happening Now
Early in the fall semester, performing arts students will receive information about selling flower bulbs to friends and family to raise money for the student's individual account. Bulbs ship directly to the customer. Funds in the account can be used to reimburse the student for individual performing arts expenses. Click here for more information.
New Site for Online Sponsorships
OPRF no longer allows organizations like Applause! to use the Revtrak system to process sponsorship or other donations. To make your sponsorship donation online, use the "Donate now" button above and it will take you to the Applause! online store (powered by Square). It is a fully secure site, even if it's not as familiar as Revtrak. Sponsorship acknowledgement letters will be emailed unless you provide a mailing address in the "notes to merchant" box at checkout.
