It’s that time of year again!
On Friday, January 19 in the Laura Speed Elliott Middle School Auditorium at 6:45 p.m., the 23rd Annual World Famous Boonville Silver Pirate Band Concert and Pie Auction will be held featuring all bands from David Barton, Saints Peter & Paul, Laura Speed Elliot Middle School, the Boonville High School Silver Pirate Band and the Derendinger Auction Service.
Last year the money raised from this event was used for student centered activities, including the purchase of new instruments and providing scholarships to send numerous kids of all ages to summer music camps. The event has been a “delicious” success in years past, raising thousands of dollars for equipment, new band uniforms, scholarships, and travel meals for students in the Boonville Band program. With the music of the bands and the stellar talent of the auctioneers, the goal of the Boonville Silver Pirate Band Pie Auction and Concert is to put the “fun” back in “fundraising.” Your business and individual donations are tax deductible and continue to be deeply appreciated by all of the musicians in the Boonville Band program.
To chase away the January cold the audience is cordially invited to a Chili Supper held before and during the Band Concert and Pie Auction. The mouthwatering chili will be served from
5:30-7 p.m. in the LSE Commons.
The bands will be performing a wide range of musical styles, including marches, overtures, popular, and swing music, with extra added entertainment by the world famous and extraordinary pie auctioneers from Cooper County. Professional and dedicated auctioneer Col. Tim Derendinger specializes in turning a pie auction into a fantastic evening of music and fun. Col. Derendinger will be dressed in style with a tuxedo provided by Marcey Caldwell at A Baker Floral in downtown Boonville. This is a great time to get out, enjoy some great band music, and see what’s cooking in Boonville at this entertaining event. Be part of the tradition of great food, music and fun with the Chili Supper at 5:30 p.m. followed by the World Famous Pie Auction & Concert at 6:45 p.m. on Friday, January 19.
Tickets to the Chili Supper can be purchased at the door. Cost for the Chili Supper is $5/adults; $3/children 5 and under. Admission to the Pie Auction and Concert is free.
