The biggest bash of the year happens on December 7th at Bethel Church (600 Shockley Rd, Richland). All four TCSBA bands will play their Caribbean and African fare and some Christmas songs, too. The Fall after school bands will also wow you with what they’ve learned since they started classes in late September.
Bring along some canned goods for the Tri-Cities Food Bank, and bring your checkbooks and Christmas shopping lists, too. Our silent auction always has amazing gift potential. You’ll also find lots of tasty treats at the bake sale, and even a raffle for great prizes. All proceeds benefit the Tri-Cities Steel Band Association. Thanks for your support!
We’ll see you at the TCSBA Christmas Concert on December 7th from 6-10PM! If you have any questions about the event or if your business would like to donate something for the silent auction, please contact us!
If you would like to help advertise this event, please print and hang this poster (PDF format). Thanks!
