Entertaining for a great cause!August 30, 2012
Can our leadership class put on a party or what? I am a member of the 2012 Leadership Class as well as a local musician. I decided that I could both volunteer my time to play music at the Barnyard Bingo Night fundraiser for the Soil Born Farms Outdoor Classroom and provide my services for a silent auction item. It was my pleasure to support such an awesome project. I played guitar and sang at the beginning of the night, setting the tone (pun intended) for the fun evening ahead.
From my unique vantage point up on stage I could see excitement in the crowd as people came in the door, saw the 50 bottles of wine they could win, meandered through all the raffle and silent auction prizes, stopped at the bar and food setups, and sat down at their seats ready for some serious bingo game play! Adding some barnyard-inspired live music was just the icing on the cake. It was great to be able to show my fellow classmates what I could do, but also to support the awesome class project. Not to mention that our prizes promoted the awareness of our local cultural scene in Sacramento. We had prizes that included local artists, stage productions, culinary venues and musicians. I would do it again in a heartbeat…next year’s class, hit me up!
