If you or your family will be buying Ham or Turkey for the Holidays, you can purchase gift cards and a portion of the sale will be donated to the band trip. The HoneyBaked Ham gift cards are available in any denomination, have no expiration date, everything is done online, and there are never any additional fees. They can be used at any HoneyBaked Ham location nationwide or to shop online. Students from any band ensemble can sell to relatives or friends IN or OUT of the state. Please see the link below for more details and to order.
