Fundraising - Gala Dinner

Buy Grocery Certificates!


Naomi Miles is our contact person on the board for grocery gift cards. If you live in the Brigham City area and would like to be included on her grocery gift card route to regularly purchase grocery gift cards, please contact her at 435.723.7617. 


Money raised can be specified for the general fund, for NUYS, NUYCO, or the NUCS (Community Symphony). The cards work at any Smith’s, including the pharmacy and gas pump, or at either the Brigham City or Tremonton Kent’s. It is an ongoing fundraiser.

Participants buy cards and spend them like cash; our organization makes 4% to 5% cash back. This is a great way to budget for groceries!

This Grocery Card Fundraiser has been a safety net for the Lake Bonneville Symphonic Society. It is an important part of the organization.



Our Gala Fundraiser Dinner & Silent Auction is held yearly in the spring. It is a lovely evening of food and entertainment, as well as a raffle & silent auction. Please contact us if you'd like to donate to the next one!
