2018 DINAUCERT DATE CHANGE !!

Dear Parents,

We hope your 2018 has gotten off to a great start! We have some updates regarding the DINAUCERT (dinner, auction, and concert), which we are bringing back after taking a year off to do the chili feed in 2017. Just to remind you, this is a great fundraiser for the band program, and since this is a trip year, we are needing to raise as much money as possible.

The Dinaucert was originally scheduled for Saturday, February 17...however, in late fall, Valley Center was asked to host the Regional Wrestling Tournament scheduled for the same weekend, so we either had to move locations (which logistically, would have been very difficult), or move the date. Between our Dinaucert planning committee, Jan, and myself, we have decided to change dates to March 3, still at the high school. Dinner will start at 5:00, catered by Valley Center's own Ben Anderson (entertainment provided by the VCMS and VCHS Jazz Bands), the auction will begin at 6:00, and the middle school and high school concert will begin at 7:00. 

Tickets to this event will go on sale in the next week or so, and will be sent home with your student. Order forms and money can be returned to me (Ms. Jolly), and tickets will be issued and sent back with your student. Anyone planning to eat (including band students, unless they are helping with the event) needs to purchase a ticket. In the past, we've sold out with 450 to 500 attendees, so be sure to invite your family and friends!

Last but not least, we need help collecting auction items for our gift baskets, and also for our live auction. Please use this Sign Up Genius link here http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0d4bacac2ca3fa7-...to sign up to bring in items for our gift baskets (can be sent to school with your student). Those items will need to be turned in by the end of February (specific date will follow). Also, if you have any connections that could help us obtain items for our live auction, please let us know!

If you want to help plan our event, our committee is meeting this evening (Jan. 18) at 7:00 in the band room. We will also need parent volunteers to help with meal set up, serving, taking tickets, clean up, set up, etc. You can email us at vcbandaide@gmail.com if you are interested in helping. 

Thanks! Amanda and Jan
