SWINGIN WITH SPAGHETTI!!!

Swingin’ with Spaghetti February 12, 2011 in the Sherwood HS Commons 6pm-8:30pm Hello band parents and students! Our 12th annual Swingin with Spaghetti fundraiser is set for next month. This is the band department and Boosters biggest fundraiser of the year and a wonderful community event. All of the jazz bands are showcased throughout the spaghetti dinner. We are also shaking it up a bit this year with a live auction and raffle. Stay tuned for an update on some of the packages that will be up for bid. Students: Please get your 10 allocated tickets to sell from Mr Petrik starting on Tuesday the 18th. Whom ever sells all ten of their tickets will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate towards band apparel! The unsold tickets and money need to be returned by Feb 2. Please be prepared to play, serve or help with set-up, and take-down the night of the event. A portion of the funds raised go directly to help offset your trip costs or other participation fees and all things band! It is also a great opportunity to show your family, friends, and community members what awesome music students, programs and teachers we have inSherwood schools!

Parents: We are currently seeking donations for the auction; Blazer or event tickets, dinner gift cards or vacation condos, homes ect. Please contact Corrie Fewx if you have a donation or know of someone who would like to support our programs. corriefewx@gmail.com We are looking for a way to purchase an Ipad at a discount , or have one donated for our raffle. We have a good start on donated funds towards our purchase, but are looking for any way to keep the cost down and our profit margin high! Please contact Malia Jasmer if you want to donate or have any ideas as far as purchasing this item. And last but not least, we are looking for volunteers for the night of the event. Look for an email from Leslie Pihl our communications officer for specific needs. Thank you for helping make this event another memorable one!
