Choir Fundraiser Entertains Shoppers

The Clarke County High School Choir under the direction of Dr. Ryan Keebaugh serenaded shoppers at Apple Blossom Mall Saturday, as they spent the day singing and selling raffle tickets for two important fundraisers.

The Clarke County High School Choir was selected to represent Virginia in the National Festival of States in New York City – a huge honor for Clarke County High School. The 35-person student choir needs to raise a whopping $25,000 to be able to go.

Here are the fundraisers currently in the works (just in case you want to help out!):

–Raffle Tickets – FREE Gas!

The Chamber Choir is raffling $350 in Sheetz gift cards for gas (the equivalent of 100 gallons of free gas!) The consolation prize is a $50 gift card (the equivalent of a free tank of gas!) Raffle tickets are 1 for $5 or 5 for $20; buy your tickets by November 29 in time for the November 30 drawing.

–Madrigal Dinner Ticket Sales

For the Madrigal Dinner on January 7, students dress up in medieval attire, sing and serve a medieval feast to guests. The popular event has sold out every year. Tickets are $25 each.

–Golf Ball Drop

In partnership with Search and Rescue, the Choir is selling $10 chances to win one of several fantastic prizes such as a week at the beach, a night at Rosemont or $1000! Each entry gets a golf ball that will be dropped from a helicopter on December 17. Depending on where your ball lands, you might be a big winner. Deadline to purchase tickets is December 16.


Local businesses can be a sponsor of the choir’s trip. For as little as $100, businesses can be listed as sponsors in the Choir’s program. Or – for a greater contribution – sponsors receive an ad and a listing on the Facebook page.

The Choir performs December 6 at 7 p.m. at Johnson-Williams Middle School, if you’d like to see them in action.
