Mardi Gras Dinner & Dance!
Join us for our "Mardi Gras" Dinner & Dance is this Saturday, May 13th from 6-11PM at "The Source" in Buena Park! The boosters have been working hard to make this a special event - including Mardi Gras decorations, delicious food, and a live DJ playing your favorite tunes! We’ll also have a special performance by our very own Gahr High School Jazz Band! This is sure to be a fun and memorable evening.
Date/Time: Saturday, May 13, 2017 from 6-11PM
Location: The Source - 6940 Beach Blvd, Buena Park, CA 90621
Cost: Tickets are just $25/person. Kids 6 & under are free.
Attire: Semi-formal. Bring a mask!
Student Help: All students are expected to help with either set up, a shift during the event, or clean up. However, if a student purchases a ticket for the dance, they will not need to help and can enjoy the evening as a participant 😀.
We are asking each student to sell a minimum of two tickets for the dance (or make a $50 donation). Tickets are just $25/person and are purchased on: gahrband.ticketleap.com/mardi-gras. There is a text box to give credit for the sale to a student. All ticket pre-sales are due this Tuesday, May 9th so we can have a head-count for food and seating.
