|We challenge all of you GYSO parents to create a winning silent auction basket for the upcoming Celebrity Luncheon! The family with the basket that sells for the most WINS!
Simply put on your creative hat, put together a desirable basket of goodies [think about a theme or adding extra value items you get donated.] We will showcase the GYSO baskets at the Silent Auction on March 25 and the one that sells for the most wins a private lesson for your child with either one of our conductors or one of our GSO players [depending on the instrument of choice for the winning child.]
The GSO’s Celebrity Luncheon, March 25th, is our biggest fundraiser of the year, now in it’s 10th year. We select 20 people from the metropolitan area to be “celebrities”… we like to have a varied group – artists, actors, business people, political people, chefs, writers, radio and TV personalities, and sports figures. Then we sell 9 seats at each table for people to come enjoy lunch at the Marietta Country Club with their celebrity of choice, enjoy a keynote address. [this year that will be done by Carmen Agra Deedy — children’s book author and story teller]… and of course shop the silent auction!
We also invite you to join us for the event, BUT luncheon attendance is not required to enter the GREAT GYSO Basket Competition!
Tickets are available on the GSO’s website: https://georgiasymphony.org/
Baskets need to be delivered to Mary Kay Howard at 257 Machelle Ln, Marietta 30064 by March 21 (very close to Marietta High). You can also bring your basket to March 19th GYSO rehearsal.
