Orchestra & Band on the Run 4 ... the music never stops
Advanced tickets go on sale Jan. 22

With lights low and excitement high, the 4th annual
"Orchestra and Band on the Run" fundraiser presents a musical
nightclub experience featuring three student-led jazz combos
and the exquisite Northgate string quartet offering classical music
during dinner. This year's event takes place from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Saturday, Feb. 24 at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Lafayette.

The evening not only features a catered dinner, fabulous music,
and the chance to mingle with friends, it also includes fine wine
by Duvin Wine Bar in Oakland and craft beer by Calicraft Brewing Company
in Walnut Creek, as well as a silent auction, and our popular dessert auction.

We have a wonderful assortment of silent auction items, including
Disneyland stays and special musical evenings out.
If you have an item you wish to donate for the auction,
(a vacation rental or a killer bottle of wine perhaps),
contact Dani Bennett.

Tickets are $50 and will go on sale Jan. 29 via Brown Paper Tickets.
Discounted tickets will be available to NIMB families starting Jan. 22;
order forms will go home with students that week.
