A FUNDRAISER BENEFITTING GOLDEN VALLEY BAND PROGRAMS
Attendees Agree – This Was a Great Event!
SANTA CLARITA, CA - The much anticipated “Jeep Night 2023” fundraising event benefiting the Golden Valley High School Band programs took place as scheduled.
Sponsored by the SoCal Jeep Junkies and KHTS 98.1 FM & AM-1220 AM Hometown Station, the event was held at Route 66 Classic Grill on Saturday, September 16, 2023 – 6p-9p.
The GVHS Band Boosters were thrilled that 80+ Jeepers donated $20 each, and the raffle from items donated by over 24 companies generated large donations…they also received a donation from George Thomas (Route 66) for food and beverage sold during the event.
Overall, the event raised more than $4,000, twice the amount of our goal of $2,000! These donations will go a long way in helping to keep the band programs running smoothly…which includes purchasing and maintaining musical instruments, marching band uniforms, sheet music, guitar strings and drumheads to name a few. (100% of all donations went directly to the Golden Valley Band Booster organization, a registered 501c3)
In addition, KHTS 98.1 FM & AM-1220 AM Hometown Station sponsored a food drive on behalf of the Santa Clarita Grocery.
Performances during the event included Golden Valley High School Bands, and the GVHS Jazz Chorus with special guests “Seven Suns”. An incredible collaboration between GV Band members and Seven Suns took place and was a highlight of the event.
In summary, Music Moves mission of “Supporting Music Education in Public Schools” was accomplished.
