The Lake Bonneville Symphonic Society runs local projects supporting youth and adult classical musicians in Brigham City, Tremonton, Ogden, and surrounding communities. Lincoln Youth Symphony and Lincoln Youth Chamber Orchestra, as well as the Lake Bonneville Community Symphony, are projects of the Lake Bonneville Symphonic Society.
In addition to funding from the George S & Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation and the Utah Arts Council, the Lake Bonneville Symphonic Society relies on their annual Gala Fundraiser Dinner and Silent Auction as an enjoyable way to spotlight local support.
So far this year, they would like to thank the following businesses that have graciously donated to the effort: Paradise Furniture, Honeyville Grain, Hair Therapee, Utah Jazz, Attitudes Salon, Footzoning from Misa Findlay, Piano Tuning from John Findlay, Hand-Carved Walking Stick from Bruce Howard, Alpine Gardens, Canyon View Animal Health Center, Classical Strings, Idle Isle Candy, Peach City, Holmes Clothing, Cover Up, Murphy's Appliance, Sonic, Hunan Village, Domino's, Drewes Floral, Premium Meat Company, Idle Isle Cafe, R & K Marble, The Ark.
The organization is still seeking additional donations for their silent auction, as well as cash donations to support this worthy cause. It is imperative that this year's fundraiser be highly successful to keep the programs serving the youth of this and surrounding communities. Grant money is never a guarantee, and awards have been smaller each year for several years.
This event will be Friday, February 18, 2011, at 6:00 pm at the Brigham City Senior/Community Center, 24 N 300 W. Tickets for the roast beef dinner are currently on sale at $15 per plate. The evening includes a raffle for the Paradise Furniture recliner, a silent auction, and live entertainment. If you know a member of either youth symphony, please contact them for your tickets, or contact Julie Gardner, 435.723.8262, LincolnYouthSymphony@gmail.com.
