We are currently seeking donations for our dinner and silent auction to be held on Monday, May 1 from 6-8PM. The fundraiser goal is $5,000.00, which will be used to support band activities next year, including travel costs, entry fees, and to replace and buy new equipment for all performing groups.
The band needs parent volunteers to help with the following:
- Contacting local businesses for donations of new items or gift cards. These donations should be turned in to Mr. Emerson or Sonja Alves by Friday, 4/28.
- Serving dinner at the event (baked potato bar)
- Donations of food items: 5lb sour cream tubs, 5lb shredded cheese, case of chili
Please contact Sonja Alves (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are able to help in any of the above areas or if you have any questions about other ways you can help.
The students will be selling tickets to the event beginning tomorrow. The cost will be $5 per person, or $20 per immediate family living at the same household. Students will split ticket sales with the band, so this can go towards their upcoming camp fees. A raffle will be held at the event, and game tables will be set-up as a fun side activity.
It’s very important that the new director is able to start with a well-funded band account next year, so please consider donating your time and efforts into making this an outstanding event!
