Disney & Dessert event to benefit school orchestras
The Mercer Island School orchestras will hold their second annual ‘Disney & Desserts ‘fundraiser at 2 p.m., February 9 at Mercer Island High School. The date was changed after the Seattle Seahawks won the chance to play in the SuperBowl.
The family-friendly event will feature a dessert buffet with a wide variety of sweets donated by local bakeries, businesses and Island bakers, with lively performances by the district’s high school orchestra, dressed in costume. There will also be a silent auction.
Advance tickets are $10 and can be purchased from MIHS orchestra students or online at TeamO-mi.org. Tickets at the door are $15.
All proceeds will support enrichment of the Mercer Island School’s orchestra programs, from grades five through twelve.
