4. Volunteers and Donations
Our students rely on the YACM Community for their success. A very important part of Holiday Harmonies is our ability to project a festive, elegant occasion. This allows our children and youth to have the experience that they are involved in something significant. We host a festive Gala helps us elevate this event.
We ask for donations from the YACM Community to make this a memorable occasion for our children .
We need donations for :
Wine service (10 bottles of white, 10 bottles of red
A "Bucket of Booze" raffle ( a festive basket of celebatory adult beverage)
We also need volunteers to help with load in and strike (loadout). We are looking foward to a wondersful celebration of the Holiday Season while helping our Student Artists experience a memorable performance that will last a lifetime.
