On this morning’s (February 15) Meet Cortland County segment, Cortland Schools Music Department Chair Jen Rafferty stopped by to discuss a special mattress sale fundraiser coming up on March 1 in the high school gymnasium.
Not only will shoppers get to choose from brand-name mattresses priced up to 50% below retail, but a portion of every sale will help support the music department’s goal to acquire more instruments for students.
Currently, some miss out because they can’t afford to buy or rent.
A lot of progress has been made to overcome that in the past year, but Rafferty said there’s still much work to be done.
The mattress fundraiser is set for Sunday, March 1, from 10 AM – 5 PM at Cortland Junior Senior High School, located at 8 Valley View Drive.
