The second biggest fundraiser supporting Alton's music program is being held this weekend. On Saturday March 12, the 13th annual Alton Band & Orchestra Builders "Music Matters" Dinner & Auction will be held at the Alton High School Commons. ABOB supports music education, equipment purchase and maintenance, and music scholarships.
The organization has been around for more than 50 years. Alton School District Instrumental Music Coordinator Laura Plummer tells The Big Z this year's crop of musicians will entertain guests beginning at 6pm.
