Dear Band Parents,
The Omaha Burke High School Band Program is very pleased to announce our 9th Annual Burke Band Jazz Benefit Dance & Auction to be held Sunday, March 20th at Champions Club Clubhouse.
Musicians from Beveridge and Buffet Middle School Jazz Bands, a combined Elementary Band and Burke High School Jazz Bands will all perform. This is on of the Burke Band’s signature fundraising events and benefits the entire Instrumental Music Program. The event is coordinated by the Burke Band Boosters, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, donations are tax-deductible.
We will again feature the popular silent auction as part of the event and we are asking support from our students. Each of the sections has agreed to contribute items towards an auction basket that will be sold during the silent auction portion of our benefit.
Please see the list below for the Theme of your student’s basket(s). If you are not inclined to shop for items for the basket, cash donations are gladly accepted! Please make checks payable to Burke Band Boosters and return them to Mr. Wright or myself. Contact me if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org, 402-689-2536.
Also, if you have items to donate for another auction basket or items for the raffle from your business or personally, we welcome all in-kind donations.
Additionally, our musicians will be helping “host” this event. We would like to count on the students to direct traffic at the event, sell raffle tickets and help as needed. Please plan on attending and showing your support.
Please return all items to the Burke Band Room no later than Wednesday, MARCH 2nd, right before Spring Break. It is very important that you include the receipt of the item and complete the form via the link below. Please return this form with the item.
