Items for Donation Needed for Band Bash Silent Auction

We are looking for items for our silent auction which will be held on March 6th.  We GLADLY ACCEPT gift cards that you got for Christmas and will never use and new items that don’t suit you but may be loved by someone else (hand cream, purse, earrings, scarf, golf club, tie, sunglasses, etc.).  Please contact lbafundraising1@gmail.com and we will arrange for item pick up.

If you have connections with a business who might be willing to donate an item, we would love to ask them for you.  Contact Jennie Hayes at (859) 229-9376 or lbafundraising1@gmail.com with their contact information, and I will be happy to get the process started.  Better yet, if you are willing to ask yourself (sincerely appreciated) then please print off the document in this link.

We would LOVE to have your help in asking companies that have donated in the past.  Contact Jennie Hayes (see above) if you would be willing to assist.  The process is simple- you drop off or email the flyer to a business that has already shown they are willing to support the band.  Several people asking at a couple of locations makes a HUGE difference in the workload of putting this event together!  I will gladly offer up the different locations and you can choose the ones that work for you.  This process is time sensitive.  We like to ask companies over the course of the next 4-6 weeks so that we have time to follow up with them if needed and get in the items for donation.

Band Bash 2020

What:  A night of jazz meant for parents and students to enjoy!  There will be a silent auction, hor d’oeuvres, and we will be drawing for our raffle.

When:  Friday, March 6th, 2020

Where:  Calvary Baptist Church

Why:  You haven’t seen your fellow band parents for months and you have missed them!  Your parents/neighbors/best friends love jazz, and this is the perfect opportunity to share the band with them.  You want to get an early start on Mother’s Day/Father’s Day/Birthday/Christmas shopping, and you know that you will find awesome auction items that will also go toward supporting the band.  You will be there for the raffle drawing (which is good luck)! 

Discount Cards


We are now offering the Lafayette Discount Card for $5!  A perennial community favorite, the Discount Card is good through July 31, 2020.  Please contact Jennie Hayes at lbafundraising1@gmail.com if you are interested in purchasing any.  They make wonderful Christmas gifts!

Join Us for BINGO

Please sign-up to work a Bingo session!  Email LafayetteBandBingo@gmail.com to let Dan know what shift you’re available.  This is the biggest fundraiser for the band.  Bingo is held every Tuesday night throughout the entire year.
