Gala supports performing arts groups
Submitted By Anthony Gao
On Friday, May 12, the smooth sands and sounds of the California Coast transform the grand ballroom of the Fremont Marriott Silicon Valley as Mission San Jose High SchoolÕs (MSJHS) annual Performing Arts Gala ÒBeyond the SeaÓ gets underway. Featuring the MSJHS Jazz Band, orchestra, concert bands, color guard, concert choirs, guest vocalists, and theatrical performances, the evening celebrates the award-winning performing arts groups of one of CaliforniaÕs top public high schools.
Silent auction and raffle prizes are offered throughout the night as guests dine on a sumptuous three-course meal, and dance to the smooth tunes provided by the MSJHS Jazz Band.
Presented by MSJHS Parents of Universal Performers Foundation (PUP), a non-profit organization dedicated to creating, fostering, and encouraging the performing arts at Mission High School, this annual fundraiser supplements the schoolÕs meager budget with such programs as scholarships, clinicians, coaches, theatrical equipment, instruments, and uniforms. PUP believes the arts are an essential part of education that provides the next generation with an important outlet for creativity, which is essential for innovation. All proceeds go to Mission HighÕs performing arts departments.
Tickets, $80 per person until April 30, with discount pricing of $725 for table of 10, can be ordered online at http://www.msjpups.org/2017-may-performing-arts-gala/. For more information, visit www.msjpups.org or call (510) 668-6077.
