Easy Fundraising Opportunity!

Sensation Research is a product research facility in the Deerfield Township area, with clients who make food, beverage, personal care, cosmetics, home care and many other products. They are looking for people to train to taste test products.

The Mason Band Boosters will be paid $5 per completed survey for adults (up to 100 signups, thus $500). The survey can be accessed here:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LJRZLGC

Additionally, if anyone is  interested in a part time position with Sensation Research, the band will receive an additional $20 per person who passes the screening process. People who become tasters would join the group working part-time at the rate of $15 per hour.

You may share the link with friends in the Cincinnati area who may be interested. Sensation Research has asked that if you’ve filled out the survey in the past, you allow others the opportunity at this time unless your interest has changed. If you have any questions, please contact Janice Anello at fundraising@masonbandboosters.com.
