Spaghetti Dinner, Silent Auction, and Bake Sale on May 23,2018!

On May 23, 2018 the Bradley Band hosted our annual Spaghetti Dinner Alumni Concert, Bake Sale, & Silent Auction, which is our band’s major fundraiser for the school year. Funds raised from this charitable dinner and silent auction pay for the purchase and repair of musical instruments, sheet music and band lockers, and the many other supplies needed to support our young musicians. These funds also provide very special opportunities for the students to work with professional musicians and to display their talents outside the school area at contests and festivals. Thank you for your support of the Bradley Band Program!
