3rd Annual Ukulele Extravaganza Jan 31 6-8pm at SLV High

Felton, California, January 10, 2014. Friday, January 31, 2014 marks the 3rd annual Ukulele Spaghetti
Extravaganza in Felton, California. This event takes place at the San Lorenzo Valley Middle School
gymnasium from 6-8pm.
Dinner consists of spaghetti with homemade meat or marinara sauce, garlic bread, and salad. Gluten-free
noodles are available by request. A silent auction and raffle will also be held at the event. Students of the
various music programs throughout the district will be donating their time to set-up and clean-up for the
event, as well as to coordinating parking.

In addition to dinner, the Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz, Sons of the Beach Club, and other local clubs will
lead guests in an ensemble of over 60 ukulele players in songs appropriate for any level player. Participants
are encouraged to bring their own instruments, and instruments will also be provided for the evening
free of charge. According to Joy Hagen, club president: “What started out to be a fund-raising event has
become a fun community get-together that my family looks forward to. I can see us coming even after our
kids have graduated.”

The music boosters will donate some of the tickets to Valley Churches United Mission for distribution to
valley residents. Suggested ticket prices for the event are $15 for adults, $8 for children and students, and
are available for purchase at Tiki King’s Ukuleles of Felton, 6235 Highway 9, Suite B. Call for tickets at

The San Lorenzo Valley Music Boosters is a group of parents who donate their time to support the
district music program from elementary to high school. The boosters raise funds for equipment and
supplies, and also to off-set the costs of performances and competitions. No student in the district will be
denied the opportunity to participate in band or choir due to financial need.
