(Seguin) -- Seguin ISD Band members want you to stay out of the kitchen Wednesday night. Tickets are still on sale for this year's Seguin Band Boosters Annual BBQ & Auction. The fundraiser will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Seguin-Guadalupe County Coliseum.
Band member Genesis Weitman says in addition to some great food catered by Bill Miller BBQ, the fundraiser helps to bring all band students together for a full night of entertainment.
"All of the bands from all the schools from the middle schools to the high school all come together and join and play for whoever wants to come and there's a silent auction and a live auction. There are also raffles and there's a lot of really good food and it's just a good time for the community," said Weitman.
Band Member Hailey Merkel says the fundraiser also helps to wrap up another successful season.
"All of the bands from the middle schools to the high schools, they all perform their own thing. All of the high school bands actually perform as one band, the marching band. We perform the show like we just play the music and it's our last time playing the show all year. It means a lot because it's just like, okay, this really shows the end of the season and the end of the show and it gives us a good start into concert season," said Merkel.
Senior Richard Rivera says he's looking forward to the event and encourages everyone to come out and support the programs throughout the Seguin ISD.
"It really helps a lot. It means a lot for everybody who is in band, because without the fundraiser and without the things that we do, we couldn't necessarily go on as we normally do. We would find a way, yes, but everything would go into improving the quality of the bands within Seguin ISD," said Rivera.
Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased in advance from any Seguin ISD band student, at Tier One Dental or at Seguin Radio KWED. Dine in hours are from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Drive thru will also be available on the east side of the Coliseum from 5 to 7 p.m.
