Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 7 p.m. at St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church on the east shore of Bde Maka Ska.

The Southwest High School Performing Arts Council is proud to announce the date for our annual gala fundraiser, Hot Notes on a Cold Night Cabaret: Saturday January 20, 2018 overlooking Bde Mka Ska (AKA Lake Calhoun). We need your help to make the party of the year even better!

Hot Notes on a Cold Night celebrates our high-quality Theatre, Dance, Choral, Orchestra, Guitar and Band programs. This year, it will cost $75,000.00 to fund the Performing Arts departments at Southwest. The School District will pay approximately $2,500 of that. We’re going to have to party hard to make up the difference!

To succeed, we depend on the support and generosity of wonderful partners like you. 100% of your tax-deductible donation to our silent or live auctions goes directly to providing the best Performing Arts education to over 1,000 Southwest students.

Studies reliably show that participation in the Performing arts increases performance in other academic areas, like math and science. We’re determined to continue Southwest’s long tradition of top-quality Performing Arts—and the benefits they provide—for our students and community. But we need your help.

If you’re interested in being a sponsor, we’d love to talk to you! Multiple sponsorship packages are available, and your investment will be greatly celebrated.

Your tax deductible donations may be sent to:

Hot Notes has gone digital this year! 

For a speedier, more convenient fundraising experience this year, we’re excited to use BidSmart’s digital system for our auction. Registration, check in, check out, bidding and payment will all happen on your cell phone.

When you register and/or buy tickets, you’ll receive a text message with easy, step-by-step instructions to get you up and bidding. The system will keep you updated, so you can socialize and enjoy the rest of the evening without checking back on the tables, or someone swooping in and outbidding you at the last minute. Meanwhile, a large video screen in the performance hall will keep everyone updated on our progress, hot items, and other up-to-the-minute details.

Here’s a short video from GiveSmart on how it works.
