Pancakes and Performances

The Clovis West Instrumental Music Program is pleased to announce its spring fundraising event; the 4th annual “Pancakes and Performances.” The event will take place on Saturday morning, May 11th, in the Kastner Intermediate MPR. As always, the morning will be full of great performances and a delicious breakfast of pancakes and sausage. We will also hold an event raffle with fabulous prizes!

Students are asked to sell 10 event tickets, which they have already received. Students who sell all 10 of their tickets and return the funds to the band room box by Friday, May 3, will be entered into a special drawing! Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 on the day of the event, with children three and under admitted free of charge. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event so remember to bring cash. We encourage everyone in the Clovis West Instrumental Music Program to get involved in making this spring fundraiser a great success! All ticket money and extra tickets need to be returned to the band room no later than Friday, May 3.

We are also seeking community support for the event and are asking for $100 and $200 donations from families and businesses to help defray costs. Donors will be recognized on signage at the event. Please view the attached Sponsor Form and let us know if you/someone you know is interested!
