Dear Friends, Family and Colleagues,
Please help me support my choir students as they work to raise the necessary funds for the Summer 2014 Choir Tour to Italy. There are several initiatives happening. The most direct way to support a student is to simply mail in your contribution (Kellogg Community College, Vocal Arts Area, 450 North Ave., Battle Creek, MI 49017) or simply go online and contribute directly to our fundraising site: http://www.gofundme.com/4py40c
Upcoming initiatives include:
You may contribute at any KCC Music Department sponsored event
“SHOP TILL YOU DROP” The Kellogg Choirs Exchange Store: (an old fashioned rummage sale with designer goodies at donation prices) date and location to be announced.
Choir night at BW3’s (Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant)
in the Lakeview Square Mall (TBA)
“Feed the Pig” campaign will roll out next week!
