Dear Friends of Ballet,

I’d like to introduce you to the Hannaford Bulk gift card fundraiser that is new at the Northern Vermont Ballet Company (NVB) and the Ballet School of Vermont (BSVT) this year.  For every $1,000.00 in Hannaford gift card orders, NVB receives $50.00! This is money that NVB can earn by any family making a simple change from buying their groceries  with cash, check or a debit card to buying their groceries with Hannaford gift cards.  

How does this work?  Twice a month I place an order for Hannafords gift cards.  Each order must be a minimum of $1,000.00.  Families pay me and I have to make a one lump sum payment to Hannafords. The first time you order I will either hand deliver or mail a Hannaford gift card to you with the amount you ordered already on the card.  The card will be ready to use as soon as you  receive  it.  Hannaford gift cards are used just like a debit/credit card in the card reader at each register.  Caution: cashiers will offer to dispose of your card once it is empty…..DON’T give it to them! Once you receive your first card all of your future orders will be reloaded to that card on the same day the order is placed.  

Some frequently asked questions (FAQs):

Q1.  How often are orders placed?  

A1.  On the 1st Friday of each month.  With enough participants ordering regularly orders could be increased to as often as every two weeks if participants are interested in participating this frequently.

Q2.  How would I pay for my order?

A2.  Cash – dropped off at the ballet school in a sealed envelope with my name on it & the date of the order.  Check – made payable to me and either dropped off at BSVT or mailed to my home


Paypal – paid to ****** (I will email you the address.) Paypal has a way to send $$ to family and friends and they don’t charge a fee for this.  I can walk you through how to make a FREE Paypal payment.

Q3.  How will I remember to place the order?

A3.  A couple of days before each order I email participants and ask that everyone reply and let me know if they want in on the upcoming order.  

If you already shop at Hannaford and you see the value in NVB benefiting from you simply making the change to paying for your groceries with Hannaford gift cards then please reply to this email and let me know you’d like to be added to the list of families that I notify of upcoming orders.  

If you have any questions please email me or call me. I will provide you with my home phone when you email me.

If you’re ready to begin ordering, please email me the following details:  

  1. How much do you want on a Hannaford gift card?
  2.  How are you going to pay?
