Mandan Band Boosters to hold annual Band Blast on March 9

The annual Mandan Band Blast, a fundraiser for Mandan Public Schools band programs, will be held Saturday, March 9, at the Mandan Eagles Club, located at 1400 Collins Ave. The Band Blast begins at 5:30 p.m. with a social hour, followed by dinner of prime rib or shrimp at 6:30 p.m.

Those attending can participate in silent and live auctions, raffle drawings and a dessert auction. Dance music will be provided later in the evening by Big Al’s Big Band. Raffle and auction items include a Magic Photo framed print of old downtown Mandan, acoustic guitar package, rechargeable-portable speaker system for iPod, pool cue, Rapala cordless filet knife, Shimano Symetre 1500 reel, carved wood items donated by Dakota Woodturners and much more.

Money raised at this event is used to provide scholarships for students to attend International Music Camp, hire band clinicians and offset the costs of uniforms, instruments, band trips and competitions.

Tickets for the dinner and auction event are $25 and are available by calling Angie at 751-6501. Tickets also may be purchased at the door.
