As one of the largest fundraisers of the year, it should be no surprise that we have a big need for volunteers to help with the Evening of Jazz, both prior to the event and during the event itself.
It takes a village to prepare for this wonderful evening! Among other things, we will need people to help solicit/collect items for the Silent Auction, inventory and value any items not submitted with a value, and help set-up both the dining and auction areas the day prior and day of the event.
At the event itself, volunteers will be needed to assist with parking, take tickets, monitor the lines, and also to staff the Silent Auction. Band students who are not in the Jazz Band bus the tables and also assist with parking. We will also need help with cleanup!
To volunteer to help with this event, please use the SignUp form here. If you have silent auction items or dessert items to donate, please send an email to Jazz@DSBandBoosters.org. To volunteer on the silent auction team, please send an email to Secretary@DSBandBoosters.org.
While dinner tickets account for a portion of our fundraising from the Evening of Jazz, the Silent Auction is a critical component of this event’s success.
Our goal is to provide a wide variety of items, so that there is something for every taste and every budget. From bed and breakfast nights to baking baskets to beautiful bling, we would love to have your help!
If you have a community business, we’d love to have your company represented at the Silent Auction. Not only is your donation tax-deductible, but you will be noticed by our 600+ attendees, who love to shop local.
To learn more about donating an item, or to make a sponsorship donation, please contact our event chair, Kathy Roy at Secretary@DSBandBoosters.org or our silent auction chair, Kathi Thomas at Jazz@DSBandBoosters.org!
An Evening of Jazz will be held on Friday February 23rd at 5:30 pm at Dripping Springs Ranch Park, 1402 Event Center Drive, Dripping Springs.
Dinner is all you can eat on one plate and will be served from 5:30pm – 7:00pm by Pok-E-Jo’s at Brodie Oaks. The meal includes BBQ brisket, ribs, sausage, and chicken with all the fixings, beverages and dessert.
Event tickets can be purchased from any high school or middle school band student, or can be purchased online using the “Purchase Event Tickets Online” option on the Evening of Jazz menu above.
Both the Dripping Springs High School Jazz Orchestra and the Dripping Springs Middle School Jazz Band will entertain you throughout the evening with a wonderful repertoire of lively jazz tunes!
The Silent Auction takes place throughout the evening, with exciting items for all budgets! The Raffle drawing is held during the evening; you need not be present to win.
