Jazz for bureau

Fine Arts students from Notre Dame High School in Red Deer will put their talents toward raising cash for the Red Deer Christmas Bureau. On Friday, Dec. 11, the students are holding a Jingle Bell Jazz Night set up to raise money to send 22 drama students to perform in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland next August. The students have now decided to share proceeds from the event with the Christmas Bureau. Jingle Bell Jazz takes place at the Memorial Centre on Friday, Dec. 11, starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students with group discounts available. The Christmas Bureau is to receive $1 from each ticket sold. Tickets can be purchased from the school or at the door.
