Eau Claire (WQOW)- If you’re interested in learning more about instruments and would like to help The Memorial High School Orchestra, you are invited to join them for The 7th Annual Cookie Walk Fundraiser.
At this free event, you will have the chance to enjoy holiday music played by orchestra students, free carnival games and crafts for children visiting the event. There will also be an instrument petting zoo which will include violins, violas, cellos, and basses. They will be providing a beverage table with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, hot apple cider, and milk for purchase. You will even have the chance to visit and take pictures with Santa Claus and an elf from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. And if that wasn’t enough reason, there will be hundreds of homemade cookies for sale by the pound.
This will be on Saturday, December 8, from 12 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Memorial High School Commons at 2225 Keith Street, Eau Claire. Guests are asked to park along Keith Street or in the lot near Clairemont.
This year’s event benefits all Memorial High School orchestra students by bringing in clinicians and tutors throughout the year and allowing for more accompanists during the solo & ensemble festival in the spring. Some commissioned pieces are also being planned.
