Postpone grocery shopping in the slush and instead have your Saturday evening dinner at Ballard High School! The dinner is a major fundraiser for the music program, so come prepared for excellent entertainment. All 12 music groups from the school will perform. The theme is "Lights, Camera, Action: Music from Stage to Screen." Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students/kids.
I attended last year and the spaghetti was great. The music parents have the routine down, they have a yummy homemade sauce recipe, and they get a local bakery to provide high-quality bread (no mushy perfab rolls). Comes with a salad and dessert, too. It's a great deal. In this mom's opinion, it would be worth that amount to see the very talented jazz groups alone perform ... add in the orchestra, chamber groups, choral ensembles, symphonic band, etc. and a dinner away from home with cleanup done by someone else ... well, wow. How can you beat it?
