Band Fundraiser and Concert

The Aledo school bands had their big fundraiser and concert last night. I took Anna for her concert part. Kara didn't feel good about going, and at the last minute Alyssa decided to stay home - probably because she wasn't quite done with her nap.

I was glad they didn't go. The place was a madhouse, but in a good, fundraiserly kind of way.

Anna did great during the concert - she was much more pleased with her performance than last time.

There was BBQ for dinner, and there were a number of auctions, both silent and live, with some very impressive items donated. The auctions that seemed to generate the most excitement, though, were the cream pies people bought to throw in the faces of the band directors. These plates of whipped cream sold for hundreds of dollars each! Well outside our budgetary confines. I was amazed.

To my untrained eye, it looked to be quite a big success.

Wow ... they must really dislike the band directors to pay hundreds of dollars to throw a pie in their faces. :)

I'm glad Anna was pleased with her performance! We're always hardest on ourselves.
