Dine-in and take-out dinners will be served inside the cafeteria. In addition, there will be a drive-through line for picking up dinners. Guests who choose to dine in will be treated to colorful decorations and musical entertainment by four different student orchestras, including the PBSO Youth Orchestra. The PBHS Orchestra will present the Pink Panther/Pops Concert.
The Taco Salad Supper has been a project of the Pine Bluff Orchestra Association, a support group for Pine Bluff schools’ orchestra program, for many years. This year is the second time that it will be co-sponsored by the Pine Bluff Symphony. Proceeds will be divided equally between the two organizations.
Proceeds from the supper will be used in the school orchestra program to fund scholarships, awards and special activities for students. The funding received by Pine Bluff Symphony will help to underwrite youth programs, including student instrument loan, coaching, a workshop for students, the PBSO Youth Orchestra, and the Symphony’s annual children’s concert.
Tax-deductible contributions to this project may be made at the Pine Bluff Symphony Orchestra office or mailed to PBSO, P.O. Box 8725, Pine Bluff, Ark., 71611. Checks should be made payable to PBSO/TSS.
