NUYS Gala Fundraiser

This email is about the upcoming fundraiser. Another email will be sent about Abravanel Hall. 

The Gala Fundraiser Dinner and Silent Auction (which is scheduled for April 9, 2016, 6 pm, Brigham City Senior Center, 24 N 300 W, $15 per plate) helps fund the general operating expenses of the organization. It's also a fun evening with live music, a silent auction, and a raffle. 

Please find some way to contribute to this effort, even if you cannot attend. 

There are two areas we need help with right now. One is ticket sales, and one is getting donations for the silent auction. 

Gala Tickets

Josie Anderson (from the LBSS board) stopped in today to hand out Gala Fundraiser Tickets. She gave each family 4 tickets to sell, and a letter of explanation. Please ask your musicians about this! They really did take them home if they were there today. :) 

There is a $25 prize for the musician who sells the most tickets from each orchestra.

Gala Silent Auction

Baskets -- There will be nine theme-baskets at the silent auction this year, each put together by different sections of the orchestra. We had a rather boisterous drawing today to determine the theme for each basket. Please bring your basket contribution to Saturday rehearsal anytime between now and the gala.

Here are the results of said boisterous drawing: 
Chamber Orchestra: 
Violin 1 and Viola -- Chocolate Lovers
Violin 2, Cello and Bass -- Movie Night 
Youth Symphony: 
Violin 1 -- Camping and Outdoors
Violin 2 (odd folder #s) -- Game Night
Violin 2 (even folder #s) -- Summer Fun
Viola & Bass -- Man Cave
Cello -- Kitchen
Woodwinds -- Salon "Pamper Me"
Brass & Percussion -- Disney

Other Silent Auction donations
There will be a drawing for $100 Visa Gift Card, with one entry for every silent auction donation. So if you get 5 silent auction donations, you get 5 entries into the $100 drawing! 

We are working on a collaborative spreadsheet so you can see which businesses have been contacted so we don't duplicate our efforts. A link will be sent.
