      Music Boosters Fundraiser

      Dear Music Department Parents
      We need your help!!! Please read this entire post!
      The EPCHS Music Booster organization is holding our only fundraising event of the year on Sunday, February 24th and we sincerely hope you will join us!  The Music Boosters provide monetary and volunteer support to the EPCHS Music Department throughout the school year and provide scholarships to students as they attend summer camps and head off to college. Money raised at this fundraiser replenishes our coffers so we can continue to serve all of the students in the music program in the coming year. 
      About the Fundraiser – 
      It will be held at Jacob’s Well, 3450 W. Maple, in Evergreen Park on February 24th from 2pm to 6pm. 
      We will be raffling off great prize baskets and there will be a cash raffle as well. 
      Entertainment will be provided by our very own EPCHS music students. 
      If your child is participating in Solo/Ensemble you will be able to hear them play their piece before they go to contest!  
      The cost of admission is $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $15 for students. 
      Any student who plans to eat at the fundraiser will have to pay the $15 entry fee to cover the cost of food. 
      Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the door. 

      Here’s where you come in! 
      We realize many families plan to purchase their tickets at the door, however our food vendor (Chuck’s Southern Comfort BBQ) needs an idea of how many people to expect.  We do NOT want to run out of food! PLEASE, even if your family plans to purchase tickets for the event at the door,we would love for you to RSVP with a headcount by responding to this email within the next few days. This isn’t a commitment but we need a ballpark number so we can make sure everyone eats!!! 

      Thank you! 
      The Music Boosters

Our holding area is NOT a locked classroom, so do NOT bring valuables with you. Eat a big breakfast and maybe a small, non-messy snack for the bus, but you won’t need cash for concessions or anything because there really won’t be time at this one.

              Parents are encouraged to come out and support your performance. Naperville North High School is at 899 Mill Street in Naperville. Admission to the contest is $9.00 for adults and $5 for kids under 10 and seniors.

              If parents would like to ride the bus to chaperone, please contact Mrs. Kazin directly.
