Orchestra association plans taco supper fundraiser


The Pine Bluff Orchestra Association (the support group for the orchestra program in Pine Bluff schools) and the Pine Bluff Symphony Orchestra will present the Taco Salad Supper fundraiser.

Tickets are on sale for the event to be held in the Pine Bluff High School cafeteria April 4 from 4–7 p.m. The dinner includes taco salad, a drink and a dessert.

Eat-in and take-out dinners will be served inside the cafeteria. There will also be a drive-through line for picking up dinners. Guests who choose to come in to the supper 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 for many years; this year is the first time that it will be co-sponsored by 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.

Tickets are $10 and are available from any orchestra student, parent or teacher. They are also available from any member of the symphony board or the Symphony Notables. Tickets may also be purchased through the symphony office at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Services Center, 211 W. Third Ave. Details: Call 536-7666. Advance purchase of tickets is encouraged; there will be a limited number of tickets at the door.

Tax-deductible contributions to this project may be made at the Pine Bluff Symphony Orchestra office or mailed to PBSO, P.O. Box 8725, 71611. Please make checks payable to PBSO/TSS.
