By GRAHAM BROOKS / Staff Writer

HELENA–The Helena Middle School choir will be hosting an annual fundraiser in late February to help raise money for the department, and all are encouraged to buy a ticket to attend the event.

The HMS Dessert Cabaret and Silent Auction will take place on Saturday, Feb. 25, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the HMS cafeteria.

Tickets to the event will cost $10 for adults and $7 for children ages 12 and under. Tickets will include a choice of dessert, beverage and admission to the show.

Doors to the event will open at 6 p.m., for those in attendance to view the silent auction items.

All proceeds from the dessert cabaret and silent auction will benefit the HMS choral department to help purchase more technology, new microphones, a new keyboard, and additional sheet music.

This year, the show choir will be performing a “Wizard of Oz” themed show, with a modern twist. The show will include songs such as, “Stitches” by Shawn Mendes, “Wild Things” by Alessia Cara, “Mean” by Taylor Swift, and “Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake, just to name a few.

In addition to the performance by the show choir, several middle school students will showcase their talents in individual performances.

To purchase advanced seating, those wishing to attend should see an HMS choir member. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door.
