Our November restaurant night is This Wednesday, November 20th at Moe’s on Harrodsburg Road from 4-9 pm!  Please come out and join us!  We will have Championship car magnets available from 5-9 for sale!  $10 each!

UK Football Game Concession Volunteers

We have another Concession Opportunity with Atomic Ramen!  There is a High School Football tournament taking place the same weekend as the Parade (which is Saturday morning) at the UK Stadium.  There are several potential sessions, but we would like to choose 1 (or 2 if there is enough interest).  We need 8 people to work each session:

Friday 12/6 from 12:30-4 p.m
Friday 12/6 from 5:30-9:00 p.m
Sunday 12/8 from 12:30-4 p.m

This was such a fun opportunity last time and was an easy way to earn $500.  If you are willing to work, please email lbafundraising1@gmail.com with the best day/time slot for you (or indicate which ones would work for you).  We will choose which shift to work based on the availability of volunteers.  Please let me know as soon as possible if any of these times work for you so I can give Atomic Ramen plenty of advance notice.

KMEA State Championship Gear

KMEA State Championship Gear is now available to order!  DEADLINE to order to receive items by the first week of December is TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19!


Band Bash

Band Bash 2020 is scheduled for March 6th, 2020 at Calvary Baptist Church!

Parents– this event is not just for the kids, it is also FOR YOU!  Parents and students both get a little dressed up and come out to listen to our amazing Jazz Ensembles.  The evening begins at 7 and ends at 10 and features performances by both Lafayette Jazz Ensembles.  There are light Hors d’oeuvres/desserts and a silent auction. 

This event is strategically placed-  the perfect location to park your car, walk or shuttle to Local Taco/Joe B’s/Mellow Mushroom with the band parents you haven’t seen in months and have been missing, then come back and watch the kids have a little fun and bid on fabulous items!  Please mark your calendars now and watch e-News for updates on how to get tickets as we get closer to the event. 

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.
