Gala fundraiser supports the performing arts
Submitted By Leena Yin
Mission San Jose High School's Performing Arts Department and Parents of Universal Performers are proud to present "Singing in the Rain," their Nineteenth Annual Performing Arts Gala. To be held at the Marriott Hotel Grand Ballroom in Fremont on Friday, May17, the Performing Arts Gala is Mission High's Performing Arts Department's most extravagant fundraiser of the year. "Singing in the Rain" will feature Mission's acclaimed Jazz Band, Orchestra, and Choir, and individual vocalists performing toe-tapping jazz and swing music, with a Roaring '20s theme providing the backdrop for the event.
The evening includes a delectable three-course dinner, a silent auction for a variety of valuable gift baskets, and the opportunity to hit the dance floor! Tickets are $75 per person until May 1, after which they will be $85, and proceeds from tickets and auctions benefit the Mission San Jose High School Performing Arts Department. Semi-formal attire is requested, and room reservations at the Marriott can be made at a discounted rate of $89 by contacting the Marriott at (510) 413-3700 and mentioning the Mission San Jose Jazz Band Dinner Dance.
The performing arts are an essential yet underfunded part of education that provides our younger generation with critical creative outlets. Your investment in Parents of Universal Performers continues the tradition of supporting the arts at MSJHS.
Please RSVP by April 26. To purchase tickets or for more information, call (510) 402-6016, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.msjpups.org.
