Second Bowling Fundraiser Doubles Proceeds for Planned Scholarship
JOLIET, Illinois (January 30, 2011) - The JTHS Band Alumni Association (BAA) held its 2nd annual Scotch Doubles Bowling Fundraiser to benefit its Scholarship Fund. The event was held at Town & Country Bowling Lanes. According to President, Brad Uffelmann, "It was a total success and raised twice the proceeds for the scholarship fund as in the previous year."
The BAA is organizing an alumni band concert on Sunday, July 29, 2012, to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the JTHS band program. The BAA plans to award the first scholarships to coincide with this historic event. The goal is to award two scholarships: 1) to a graduating JT Central senior band student in the class of 2012, 2) to a graduating JT West senior band student in the class of 2012. All of the proceeds from the bowling fundraiser go towards these scholarships.
The BAA is interested in connecting with all JT band alumni (band sponsors
included) to perform in, help organize, and attend the centennial
celebration weekend. Please contact the BAA at 815.714.8706 or
