Rio Band Families,
Our 35th Playathon was a huge success! Fantastic music, good community vibes, and above-projected fundraising all contributed to a wonderful event. A huge thank you to Hannah Oldfield and James Treadwell, our student and parent chairs, respectively as well as EVERY student and parent who had a hand in the organization, planning and implementation of this tremendous undertaking. The cooperation and dedication of our band community is what truly sets us apart.
We raised over $31,000 for the band program, thanks to pledge parties and the generous donations of our families and the community. At the All-Play, I announced the top individual earners, but due to a clerical oversight, one very important student was left out….
In second place overall, raising a total of #1,280.01- WILLIAM ‘THOR’ SNYDER!!
We all thank William and his family, and apologize for missing him at the All-Play.
FOX 40 came out to cover the event- here’s a link to the news clip: http://fox40.com/2015/11/06/rio-americano-high-school-holds-35th-annual-disney-play-a-thon/
