Dessert and sweet sounds at Isfeld

On March 7, the Mark Isfeld Secondary School senior concert band, jazz band and choir will hold a fundraiser dessert night and live auction.

The fundraiser is to help send our students on a trip of a lifetime to New York City. Money raised will be applied towards the entire group of 88 students participating in the New York trip.

Dessert Night at Times Squares will be a New York-themed dessert night, coffee and live auction that runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the school gym.

You can enjoy music performed by Isfeld students throughout the evening followed by a live auction from approximately 7 to 8:30. Delicious desserts will be plated and dressed by professional chef Paul Kurucz and Coun. Manno Theos will MC the evening.

Admission for adults costs $7.50, $5 for students And no charge for children five and younger.

School doors will be open at 6:15. You can pay at the door.

Payment for the auction items can be made by cash or cheque following your successful bid.

While in New York the students will be immersed in culture and history related to music. They will attend the Juilliard school of music to experience as well as learn, take in a Broadway show and show their respect at Ground Zero. These are just a few examples of their week-long trip.

As part of fundraising, the group requests donations of auction items from local businesses and families. So far it has items ranging from hotel stays to famous baseballs and iPods to physio.

Support will be recognized in the evening program as well as through communiqués from the school to parents and on the group's Shaw webspace at www.newyorkbandtrip2012.shawwebspace.ca.
