10th Annual Mattress Sale

On October 26th, the Perry High School Band will be hosting our 10th annual Mattress Sale.  The sale will take place from 10AM-5PM in the Aux. Gym at PHS.  This event has raised thousands of dollars for us over the years, and we appreciate your support!

We are asking that each student find at least one referral to come in and check out the sale.  This could be anyone from a neighbor, employer, or family.  The more people who stop in, the more mattresses we might sell!

90% of our sales will come from referrals.  We are asking families to find other families in need of a bed and refer them to our sale.  You may be surprised how many people need a new mattress!

All mattresses are brand name and up to 50% off of retail.  Layaway and delivery are available.  Twin beds start at $199, Full $289, Queen $299, and King/CA King from $499.

In order to assist with our marketing campaign, we are asking parents to opt into our texting campaign by texting perry2019 to 484848.This is an easy way for us to forward information directly to you, which you can share with family and friends directly from your phone.  You will only get 4texts max and then it will be deleted after the event.
