Time to Get Ready for the District 99 Orchestra Banquet!

Dear Orchestra Families,

Our annual Orchestra Banquet is less than a month away, on Friday, May 3 at North High School. This year we're continuing the Basket Raffle fundraising tradition which supports the ongoing need to replace the school-owned string instruments and bows. (Last year we raised nearly $1,200!)

To make this a success, we need everyone's help collecting and assembling donations to be raffled/auctioned off. Basket ideas include:
  • Finals Week Care Package (lots of food and goodies)
  • Summer Picnic Package (basket, blanket, candles, etc.)
  • Fourth of July theme (anything red, white and blue)
  • Other potential themes -- spa essentials, music, pets, fitness, art, entertainment, food, jewelry, etc.
Donations can be made by individual families or a group of people. Single items will also be accepted; we'll assemble them into baskets. Other ways to help:
  • Join a team that will solicit donations from local businesses. (Don't worry, we'll provide instructions and coordinate efforts.)
  • Come early on the day of the banquet to help set things up. 
  • Tap your creative side by helping get donations ready for display. 
Our hope is that every orchestra family participates in some way. Please use the form below to let us know how you can help. (And be sure to hit the Submit button.) Thanks!!
