Wheres the beef? Sierra High band has it
Placeholder Image

The Sierra High Band Boosters are proud to say they “got the beat.” But they will also say they “got the beef.”

And that’s no joke.

But the best part is, they are also practically giving away the USDA-choice meat cut and wrapped by Fagundes Meats of Manteca.

It only takes a dollar to win, giving you the best bang for your buck there is. However, the more tickets you buy, the more chances you have of winning any – or maybe more if you’re really lucky – of the three prizes offered: 100 pounds of beef for the first-prize winner, 50 pounds for the second prize, and $25 pounds for the third prize.

Tickets are only $1 each, or six for $5, 12 for $10 and 24 for $20 which translates to one free ticket for every five tickets purchased.
The lucky winners will be drawn on Band Awards night which will be held on Tuesday, May 26, starting at 7 p.m. One need not be present to win.

Hammarstrom said this is the school band’s only big fund-raiser this school year.  Money generated by this effort will help the program in the repair and tuning of the band’s instruments, as well as to buy “much-needed instrument cases” and purchase replacement uniforms.

Hammarstrom used Thursday night’s annual jazz band concert, one of two spring concerts this school year, to drum up support for this cause, interspersing commercial breaks during the show to remind parents to buy their tickets that evening.

Tickets also will be on sale during the concert and symphonic bands performance on Tuesday, May 19, in the school cafeteria starting at 7:30 p.m.

Those who are not interested in purchasing a ticket for the drawing may also make a donation to the school band program.
