The Lafayette High School Choir continues to practice and raise funds for its planned March trip to New York to perform at Carngie Hall. Under the direction of Kim Gregory, the choir will sing in the National Youth Choir in New York, but that dream depends on raising cash.
Students and chaperones must raise $1500 each to pay for the trip, which will cost about $80,000.
To accomplish that big money goal, students have been fundraising since last May. They’ve done everything from washing cars, to hosting dinners, to conducting talent shows and selling raffle tickets. Right now, the choir is selling raffle tickets on a 2013 Landmaster utility vehicle and a Remington shot gun, both to be given away November 1.
Landmaster tickets are $10 each or 3 for $25 and the gun tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20.Tickets are available at all home football games and in front of Rebel Rags on this Saturday, Oct. 19.
