Dear Families of SCN Music Students,
As you may know, St. Charles North is a Grammy Award winning high school. We have been able to achieve this success in part because proceeds from our Jazz Showcase and other fundraisers. They have given us the ability to bring in guest clinicians, provide travel opportunities to national and international events and purchase and maintain musical instruments for the students.
This year, the Jazz Showcase will be held on Friday, June 2nd at The Q Center in St. Charles. Both instrumental and vocal jazz groups will be performing. Although talented jazz ensembles of SCN will be featured that night, it is important to understand that the proceeds of this fundraising event benefits ALL of the amazing music programs at SCN.
The tradition of this event provides an opportunity for time spent with family and friends enjoying the entertainment and our annual Silent Auction. As you can imagine, an evening of this magnitude has many facets to its continued success. This is where you come in. There are many ways that you can support this event.
· Buy tickets and attend with family and friends
· Purchase ad space in the event program for your business or invite a friend to
· Make a donation to the silent auction or raffle
· Volunteer your time by participating in one of the many subcommittees of this event:
- Donation gathering
- Basket Prep
- Event set up
- Check In / Check Out
- Help during the event
The students are what make the evening memorable, but the donations are what make the event a fundraising success beyond covering the cost of the venue. Gift cards, autographed memorabilia, tickets, large or small items, services – anything at all that you would be willing to donate would be greatly appreciated!
Please email me to let me know how you would like to show your support for the music programs of SCN. Don’t forget your contact information, and let me know of any questions you may have.
On behalf of the music students, staff at St. Charles North High School and the Friends of Music parents, I thank you very much for your consideration and support of this special event.
Dee DeCosterd, President
