HPU’s Tau Beta Sigma to host band fundraiser dinner

BROWNWOOD – November 26, 2013 – Howard Payne University’s chapter of Tau Beta Sigma, a national honorary band sorority, will host its second annual Christmas Dinner fundraiser on Saturday, December 7, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., in the fellowship hall of Brownwood’s First Baptist Church. A minimum $5 donation is requested and proceeds will go toward the purchase of new instruments for the HPU Yellow Jacket Band.

HPU music students will perform live as guests enjoy a meal of lasagna, garlic bread, salad and chocolate cake.

“The Yellow Jacket Band creates music the entire community can enjoy,” said Tau Beta Sigma member Ruby Johnson, a junior from Alvarado. “We would appreciate people coming to support the band.”
