1ST ANNUAL SWEETHEART BALL THIS SATURDAY!
You are cordially invited to attend our 1st Annual Sweetheart Ball on Saturday, February 14th at 6:30 - 10:00 p.m. at the Cerritos Performing Arts Center! This is a beautiful and romantic venue for Valentine's Day - and includes a delicious Italian dinner (choice of chicken alfredo or spaghetti & meatballs), salad, bread, dessert, live music by our own Gahr High School Jazz Band, and dancing with a DJ and dance floor! Tickets are just $50 per couple or $35 per single ticket. Semi-formal attire is encouraged.
We are asking each student in the music program to sell a minimum of two tickets for this event. If you don't sell two tickets, you are financially responsible for $20. The profit from the first two tickets sold is to cover the cost of sheet music & materials 2nd semester, as well as go towards the extra $3,000 that must be raised for additional Hawaii costs (equipment truck rental, instrument & equipment rental, oversized luggage charges, etc.).
FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY: Students will be credited $15 from each additional single ticket and $20 from each pair of additional couples tickets sold. This is a great fundraiser for Hawaii or your Winter Drumline or Winter Guard donations!! Tickets will be checked out tomorrow during class. Please see Mrs. Varney or Mr. Loney to check out additional tickets. ALL MONEY AND UNSOLD TICKETS ARE DUE IN THE DROP BOX THIS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 10TH. YOU WILL BE FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOST OR UNRETURNED TICKETS.
HAWAII, HERE WE COME!
Thank you to everyone that attended last week's Hawaii Tour Meeting! This is shaping up to be an exciting and memorable trip! The updated documents are in the Hawaii section on our website: www.gahrband.org/hawaii
We also discussed summer school possibilities. The best option is to talk to your school counselor ASAP and sign up for Gahr High School's "Cyber High." This is an online course that is taken during 2nd semester. Band & Color Guard students participating in the Hawaii Performance Tour will be given priority. The students may only take one class at a time, but it is possible to complete more than one class in a semester.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our MusicAmerica Tour Manger, Dean McDowell, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at (760) 702-7973.
