Thank you for making the 2013 Brigade Blast the best one yet! It was an evening of wonderful performances, great gift baskets and silent auction items, and a wide range of tasty concession items. We had over twenty performances with hundreds and hundreds of student performers and thousands of audience members. Our Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble, Winter Guard, and Winter Drumline had great performances and we are very proud of their accomplishments! Thank you parents and to our great instructors who have made this possible.
We would like to thank Esmeralda Alvarez and Raziq Noorali who organized and coordinated our volunteers and students to help Brigade Blast run so smoothly and on time. Thank you to Lori Ramhoff who ran, assembled, and helped fundraise the gift baskets and auction items. Thank you to Karleene Garica and Susan Poole who created our first hospitality room that was a huge hit with the directors. Thank you to Todd Berg and dozens of parents that worked the grill and concession stands. Thank you to Sheryl Cunanan, Sal Gutierrez, and the Winter Guard students who did a great job running the bake sale and snow cones. Thank you to Shelle Barbeau and all the parents who worked the entryways. Thank you to Rich Ramhoff who took amazing photos throughout the entire evening. Thank you to Norbert and Karleene Garica for their prep work leading up to Brigade Blast, the great communication system in place during the evening, and for set up and tear down at the event. Thank you to the entire booster board for all the hours you've dedicated to making this event and our program so great.
Thank you to all the parents, family members, alumni, and students that signed up and helped prep in the days leading up to Brigade Blast; that donated their time, energy, and gift items; and who worked tirelessly throughout the entire evening! We had over 60 parent volunteers that helped making this Brigade Blast the best one yet. YOU are what make this program so extraordinary and help our students reach their full potential!
