Dear DHS Music Boosters:
Whoohoo! We just had our awesome 7th Annual Irish Guard Invitational this past Saturday! I hope everyone was able to come out and see all the participating schools perform their shows. This is the first year where we had the maximum number of schools registered for the event! For those first timers, we hope you had a fabulous experience!
For all those parents who missed this opportunity to volunteer, there will be many more chances and we love to have you all come out to participate in future events for the benefits of your sons and daughters. These events help raise funds that are necessary to keep the music program strong and allow the program to provide the musical and artistic experience that helps complement and broaden your child's educational experience.
I feel very blessed that we have a wonderful community of volunteers and I want to thank each and every one of our volunteers who came out to support this important fundraising event! I realized some of our volunteers signed up for multiple shifts while others were just returning from their business trips but still signed up to volunteer! I and the Board are very grateful for your support and dedication to the program. Your contribution has helped us host another successful invitational and this will ensure that Dublin High School continues to be a desired site for WBA's future consideration.
Needless to say, hosting this event takes a huge amount of resources and human capital. On behalf of the Dublin High School Music Boosters Board, we would like to acknowledge and thank the following organizations and individuals for their valuable contributions in making this event a huge success:
Dublin High School Board of Trustees,Dublin High School Administration,Dublin High School Athletics Boosters, Dublin High PFSO for their support and consideration of scheduling which allows us to use the DHS facilities each year for this event.
Dr. Kevin Grier for his amazing talents as our announcer for the event.
DUSD Custodial Staff for their dedicated attention to maintaining the facilities and supporting us throughout the event.
Jackie Lawson and the Dublin High Culinary Arts students for providing delicious catered meals for the judges and directors.
San Ramon Golf Club for their generous donations of golf cart rentals to help us get around the campus during the event.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for graciously providing us their parking lot to accommodate our overflow parking needs.
Our vendors: Iron Horse Kettle Korn, Mustache Mike's Italian Ice, and Rocky Mountain Candy for complementing our concessions stands. Aunty Nay's Leis and Wyld Guyz Buttons for their unique band products.
JAMS Music for their continued support of our program and providing instrumental products and services.
All of our sponsors who generously donated to our event.
And last but not least, we would like to thank all of our committee chairs for the planning, drumming up volunteer support, and reaching out to our neighbors and third parties to ensure this event was well staffed and supported by the community.
Thank you, again, for another great invitational!
