As sure a sign of spring as the return of the robin – is Jazz Café on Thursday, March 24 at Granville High School.
Everyone is invited to come out and listen to music, bid on desserts and help the Granville High School Jazz Band raise some funds for upcoming adventures like a trip for the senior band.
“The band members are really excited about the Jazz Café and the trip to the Empire State Plaza. These are their favorite events of the year,” Band director Crystal Everdyke said.
Everdyke and her musicians will be laying down some jazz tunes while the audience has a chance to grab some tasty munchies and enjoy.
A dessert auction will be held with pies, cakes and cheesecakes going to the highest bidder.
The evening will wrap up with a raffle drawing for prizes donated by local businesses. Raffle tickets are on sale now from any Jazz Ensemble member and will also be available the night of the Jazz Café. “They are also excited about the prizes this year, especially the new ones. The Disney Hopper Passes have been a great hit. We have another five pound chocolate bar to auction off – I’m sure they will pool their money for that again,” she said.
The cafe is free and open to the public, but the tasty treats are going to cost you.
The emcee will be Rev. Jerry McKinney who will try to get top dollar for those goodies. The two grand prizes for the raffle portion of the evening will be a set of Telescope Casual Furniture or a set of four Disney Park Hopper passes.
Tickets are on sale now, $1 each or 6 for 5.
