UPDATED: 'Taste & Sound of Woodstock' To Raise Funds For Band Program

The annual event sponsored by the Woodstock Wolverine Band Boosters brings in money for Woodstock High's marching band program.

UPDATED 10:10 am: Food and music will return to Woodstock High School in an effort to raise money for the Woodstock Wolverine Band Boosters.

The annual Taste & Sound of Woodstock will be held at 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday March 2 at Woodstock High School.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 4-10, which provides access to sample food from dozens of area restaurants. 

Local businesses will also be showcased and local musicians will perform throughout the event.

The band booster organization supports the school's band program through fundraising and adult volunteers. 

Michael Woodard, this year's organizer of the fundraiser, said the club hopes to have between 300 and 400 people come out for this year's festivities. 

The club also hopes to raise between $5,000 and $10,000. The club has been "blessed" with the outpouring of support from the community so far, with merchants donating items for raffle prizes. 

Four musicians have been signed on to perform and Woodard added he hopes to have at least 13 restaurants participate in offering samples for the public. 

Proceeds go towards anything from helping purchase new instruments, band uniforms and paying for the cost to participate in marching band competitions, orchestra and concerts.

"It’s to support the band in its efforts to help develop our children," he said, adding he's thankful for the merchants, band parents and the community at large for supporting the club thus far. "We are picking up where tax dollars can't."

Woodard added he hopes the community will turn out in support of the band boosters and the club's efforts to help cultivate a quality band program at Woodstock High School.
