Band Bash 2019:  Save the Date and Silent Auction Donations

Download Flyer


Saturday, March 16th at Oleika Shrine on Southland Drive

Mark your calendars for the evening of March 16th, 2019!  We are having our annual Band Bash, a fantastic evening of jazz bands and silent auction fun to benefit the Lafayette Band. This year’s theme is “True Colors”! It is a great opportunity to get a little dressed up (or show off your best 1980s outfit) and enjoy and evening out with other band families.  All parents, students, alumni, and friends are invited! Fabulous appetizers and desserts will be served, and our own Jazz bands will be serenading us while we shop at our annual silent auction!

Band Bash Silent Auction Donations

We are still collecting items for the silent auction.  If you have a business contact you think might be interested in donating an item for the auction, please contact Jennie Hayes at jennielhayes@gmail.com. Any unused gift cards from Christmas sitting around your house?  We will gladly accept them for the auction! Tickets to special concerts or sporting events? We’d love to have them! (Specifically seeking UK Sports, Musicals, Concerts, etc.)
