BHS Music Booster's 2015 Gala Benefit Concert and Silent Auction


The following is a press release from the Burlington High School Music Boosters Association: 


The Burlington High School Music Booster Association announces its eighth annual “Gala Benefit Concert and Silent Auction” to be held on Sunday, November 8, 2015 at 2:00 pm in the Fogelberg Performing Arts Center at Burlington High School.


This year’s Gala is Disney-themed to celebrate the Marching Band’s trip to Disney World in April 2016.  The show will feature the BHS Concert Band, Jazz Band, and Color Guard as well as solo performances by Mia Campbell, Shinji Coram, Patrick Creedon, Crystal Curran, Clayton Davison, Steven Gelberg, Gabby Goulette, Tehniyat Hakim, Emily Ovesen, Ivy Saltsman and more.


The doors will open at 1:00 pm and guests are invited to peruse and bid on the auction items provided by individual and local business donations.  The concert will begin at 2:00 pm. Refreshments will be provided by LaCascia’s, Not Your Average Joe’s, Roche Bros, Roma’s Bakery and Wegman’s. Children are encouraged to join in the fun by dressing up as their favorite Disney character for the event.


This year’s Silent Auction promises to surpass all expectations.  Dental Bright of Burlington is offering a full orthodontics (Braces) package.  Some other top items are private lessons and camp tuition at the Real School of Music, Chef’s dinner and wine package for 6 from Burton’s Grille, Disney World park hopper passes, sets of tickets to theater and sporting events, gift certificates to Altitude trampoline pack, a luxury “prom package”,  gift certificates to local restaurants and the very popular scratch ticket tree and more!


Reserved seating tickets for the “Gala Benefit Concert and Silent Auction” are $10 each.  All proceeds from the tickets go directly to the Disney Trip Fund and proceeds from the auction go directly to the Music Booster Fund to cover costs for chorus & band support for the year as well as scholarship funds.  Tickets are available through Burlington High School chorus and marching band members, by phone at 781-A-FUN-TIC, online at www.burlingtontheatre.com and at the door.  Guests can mention the name of a marching band member after they purchase their tickets and the total cost will go directly to reduce the cost of that student’s trip to Disney.


Can’t attend the Gala but would like to help send the Marching Band to Disney?  Donations can be made at the GoFundMe site at www.gofundme.com/bhsmbanddisney2016.


The Fogelberg Performing Arts Center is handicapped accessible.
