Hey guys! I'm sure you've heard Jen or Lynn talking about the Battle of the Bands that my high school Key Club put on. We had it last night at our local comunity playhouse and it was VERY successful! We raised about $750 on ticket sales alone and I haven't even begun to count the b:w mission table donations! We had a crowd of about 150, which was huge for us and probably the biggest event we've ever put on. The band that won, the Brothers Bentley, even donated half of their merch proceeds to b:w! Here are some pics so you guys can enjoy them!

Wonderful pics!

 

Sounds like the event really took off.  I'm so happy for you and the rest of your high school key club.  Lynn must have been an excellent judge, haha. Everyone seemed to be very generous... that's totally awesome how the band, Brother's Bentley gave 50% of their merch sales to B:W and how the lead singer of Vanya wore a B:W tee.  A night of music and benefit for B:W! What a night! 

 

Great job!!

This was a great event.  It was clear that the Key Clubbers worked really hard before, during and after to bring everything together.  I think the people who came really enjoyed themselves.

The Brothers Bentley seriously kicked gluteus maximus.  Empty Chair was also great, and I think they have a bright future ahead.  If you ever have the opportunity to see either of these bands, take advantage of it.

 

I was delighted to have been able to participate in this benefit for BWM.    Many thanks to everyone who put so much time and energy into it! 

 

PBJ,

Lynn
