Music Dept End of the Year BANQUET DONATIONS


The end of the year is fast approaching and with it comes our annual Music Department Banquet.  This occasion celebrates the hard work and dedication of our music department students.  Our goal is to make this event as enjoyable and fun for the students as possible. However, it is very difficult to meet this goal due to the current economic situation, so we would like to ask for donations, which may consist of (but are not limited to) monetary donations, gift cards, snacks, and prizes. Any and all contributions would be greatly appreciated.

 If you would like to donate, please contact Mr. Seta at 831-7905 or via email at

 We value and are incredibly appreciative of your consideration and generous support.

 Thank you,

Banquet Committee 2013
