Orchestra Benefit Dinner

Dear Orchestra Families and Supporters,

The Arcadia High School Orchestras are excited for the return of the Orchestra Benefit Dinner, with our 29th Annual Benefit Dinner and Recital happening on Saturday, February 24, 2024. This fundraising event is held annually at the Arcadia Masonic Center. The AHS Orchestras have a history of excellence of over 60 years and continue to be a model for high schools throughout the state and country thanks to avid financial support from the community.

This year's time-themed event, "Stringpunk" will begin with appetizers while you browse for deals at our silent auction, then a catered dinner, followed by entertainment featuring string ensembles from all four AHS Orchestras and a guest artist. The grand finale will showcase all 200 orchestra performers completely surrounding the guests for an unforgettable experience. 

The funds generated from this prestigious event provide many orchestra necessities (coaching, musical instruments, materials and supplies for the orchestra room) that may not otherwise be available to us. This is a great opportunity for you to be a Friend of the Orchestra. There are five ways in which you can provide support for this event: 1) purchase or sell event ticket(s), 2) purchase or sell advertising space in the program book, 3) donate money and be a benefactor, 4) donate items for our silent auction, or 5) volunteer your time to be on our OBD committee. We are grateful to receive new and current items valued at $50 or more for our silent auction, such as musical instruments, electronics, tickets to sporting or music events, gift certificates, and services such as spa treatments or music lessons (just to name a few). All donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Here is a contribution form for you to complete. Please take a few moments and respond by sending this form back by February 13, 2024. Thank you for your support and generosity for the continuing success of the Arcadia High.
