We have a special opportunity. Augustana College in Rock Island, IL is touring for their Spring Break. One of the band members, George McCollum is a former Burke Band member. George’s mother is Loretta McCollum, a former Booster President. George, Loretta, and the Augustana Band are looking for our help!
They are making a stop in Omaha and performing at Burke High on Wednesday, February 20th, at 8:00. They are looking for housing for the students after the concert. You will take the students home, give them a place to sleep, feed them breakfast, and drop them off at school in the morning. If you can take at least two students for the night, please contact Loretta McCullum (firstname.lastname@example.org). Since some of the students have allergies or other requirements she can coordinate all of this. They are not looking for anything special, a sleeping bag, air mattress, couch or a bed. And breakfast doesn’t need to be fancy either.
Not only will you be helping out, but this is a unique opportunity for you and your Burke student to share.
Please, please give this some consideration. They may need about 20 families. Let’s help make this a great experience for Augustana and show them Burke Band Boosters are fantastic. Feel free to contact Loretta with any questions. She is excited and anxious to find a spot for everyone.
