KEESEVILLE - The AuSable Valley Jazz Band is hosting a barbecue benefit dinner and silent auction Saturday, March 26 at the Keeseville Knights of Columbus from 6 to 9 p.m.
The dinner is to benefit the jazz band in their efforts to raise funds to offset the cost of their upcoming trip to New Orleans. The group plans to travel to the "Big Easy" in late May where they will be learning about and experiencing as much music as possible and also doing some volunteer work for Habitat for Humanity.
Tickets are $10 and may be purchased by calling Terry Saulsgiver at the school at 834-2800, ext. 204, or 578-6241.
There are many items for the silent auction that have been very generously donated by local businesses from Lake Placid, Keene Valley north to Plattsburgh. The students have all been working very hard to prepare a wide range of musical selections for the entertainment portion of the evening. The Knights of Columbus is located on Rt 9N in Keeseville.
