Jazz Festival – Friday, Mar. 27

A BIG thanks to everyone that helped make our Jazz Benefit such a success last weekend. We don’t have the final numbers but all indications show that once we have figured in all the revenue and expenses we will be right at our projected revenue for this event (or a bit higher). In my years dealing with this event it was the best one by far, and we came away with ideas how to make it even better next year. Thanks to all the committee chairs and the people who put in long nights and weekends to make this event happen.

We have one more booster event before we wrap up the year at Honors night. Our first annual Jazz Festival will be held this Friday, Mar. 27, at Burke High School. Being the first time we have hosted this event it is essential that we make a good first impression, so the directors put it on their calendar for next year. Please consider helping us out on this important new event.

Thanks again for all your efforts on the Jazz Benefit… our club is only as good as our members… and we have a GREAT club!

Bar (baked goods) Donations for Burke Band Auction and Jazz Benefit

Boosters –

Burke Band is hosting the Burke Band Auction and Jazz Benefit at the Champions Run Club on Sunday, March 22nd. This is a Major fundraiser for the Burke Band Booster Club and we are asking each band student and/or jazz band student to bring a 9” X 13” pan of bars to be served at the benefit.

Bars are to be peanut/nut free due to allergies and also in either a disposable pan or baked in a foiled lined pan so they can be removed and wrapped in foil. IMPORTANT: Please do not cut the bars. We will be storing them in a refrigerator until the day of the event and will then cut them so they are the same size.

Below is the link to the SignUp Genius for the bars donations for the Jazz Band Benefit and Dance.
