All-Community Mattress Sale Benefits Music Department

In an effort to replace band uniforms that are approaching 19 years old and, according to CVIM board members, are hanging on by a thread – literally – the Crescenta Valley High School Instrumental Music board is hosting a mattress sale.

According to board member David Jones, “We chose and love this fundraiser because it ties in with our need so well and because we feel like we are providing a community service at the same time. This is such an easy and local way to replace an aging mattress so a better night’s sleep can be enjoyed.”

A mattress showroom will be set up at Rosemont Middle School in the gym on Saturday, Feb. 16. There will be over 30 name-brand models for customers to try. The beds come in all sizes, are brand new, made to order, have factory warranties and cost less than retail stores. Beds from Simmons Beautyrest, Wellsville, Southerland, and more will be on display.

In addition, there will be pillows, sheets, frames and adjustable power bases available. Every purchase benefits the Crescenta Valley High School band. Delivery and haul-away of old mattresses are available.
