Fwd: Raising money for Obama music programs -- by baking! (PSO concert too)

From: Jean Siegel <>

Hi PPS Parents,

Would you please help earn money for PPS Obama Academy's music
programs -- by baking?

The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) is returning to East Liberty
for a fifth annual Community Engagement Concert at East Liberty
Presbyterian Church on Saturday, June 2nd at 7:00 p.m.

ALL proceeds from the concert will benefit music education programs at
Pittsburgh CAPA, Pittsburgh Dilworth, Pittsburgh Obama, and Hope
Academy of Music and the Arts.

Helen Blier is again running the bake sale after the event, once
again, the proceeds will support the music programs at the 4 schools.
She's a little stricter than I am baking for teachers -- she asks
folks to make something, and to individually wrap the items, so they
can sell them a piece at a time.  Please contact Helen at   pacem1
-at- gmail -dot- com. Also, Helen would appreciate one or two
volunteers to staff the bake sale as well.

If you're interested in the concert itself, here are the details:
(please buy your tickets at the school from Mr. Schrader, because then
we keep all the money)


$10 - Adults

$ 5 - Students & Seniors 60+

FREE - Children and youth 18 and under with adult

SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICALLY IMPORTANT: The proceeds from tickets we sell
at the school before the concert, we get to keep, completely. That's
100%, as in all (A-L-L) of it!

Tickets are available for purchase at the school from Mr. Schrader.

Tickets are also available online at Brown Paper Tickets (online sales will be split between the four
participating schools).

There will be cash sales at the door the evening of the performance
(door sales will also be split between the four schools).

THANK YOU for your support.
