Greetings Vocal Arts Parents!
Once again, our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the recent fires - it is so incredibly heartbreaking to watch our community suffer. It was reported that several GV students and families were affected, including the loss of homes. I know we all want to do what we can to help our fellow Grizzlies, so in addition to other efforts being made around GV, Vocal Arts specifically will be doing two things to help the families who lost their homes: 1) We will be donating all the proceeds from our Chipotle fundraiser directly to these families and 2) for every 10 mattresses we sell at our upcoming mattress fundraiser, we will be donating one mattress to these families as well. Please come and join us as we do our part to help support our GV community!
In addition to being on high wind advisory, it looks like this week really is going to blow right by! 😂 With all the exciting things going on, here's what you need to know for this week:
TOMORROW: Chipotle Fundraiser, 5pm - 9pm @ Chipotle on Golden Valley Call Time for student performers: 5:30pmPerformance: 6pmIf winds are too high, we will cancel the performance portion ONLY; the fundraiser will still happen as planned unless power is out.ALL VOCAL ARTS STUDENTS are set to perform unless they have an excused conflict.Come have dinner anytime between 5-9pm and mention Vocal Arts at the register.Remember, all proceeds will be going to GV families who lost their homes in the latest fire.MATTRESS FUNDRAISER: New Date is now Sunday, December 15th, 10am - 5pm
We will do another round of promotions at our holiday concerts. Hopefully, people will want to buy new beds for Christmas!We will send a new round of promotional materials in the upcoming weeks - please help us out and plaster it EVERYWHERE :)Remember, for every 10 mattresses we sell, we will be donating one new mattress to the GV families who lost their homes in the latest fire.GOLD CANYON CANDLES: Beginning soon and available all the way through the holidays!
These candles are SERIOUSLY the best in the business - they beat everything else (Yankee, Bath & Body Works, etc...). Their holiday line especially has some of the most delicious, most NATURAL SMELLING candles I have ever smelled. They make EXCELLENT gifts for the holidays as well, so stock up and help Vocal Arts at the same time! (AND they deliver nationwide, so sell to family and friends everywhere!)We will be sending home some promotional materials for this soon - please keep an eye out. All orders can be placed online so we will also be sending a link to the online store for our specific fundraiser - SO EASY! :)SCHEDULING VOLTAGE ONLY:
There are two new rehearsal dates added to the calendar, November 16th and December 1st. Please watch for a separate, detailed email from me regarding this tomorrow.Competition dates are being confirmed soon, HOORAY! We will have these dates for you shortly, but safe to say, please plan on all or most weekends in March!ALL VOCAL ARTS and GV:
