Happy Easter Mighty Hawk Band!
Congratulations to all three Concert Bands (Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, and Concert Band) for earning Straight 1st Division Ratings from All Six Judges in both Concert and Sight Reading at the UIL Concert and Sight Reading Contest last week which also serves as our State Evaluation.

Upcoming Jazz Dinner Auction – A Note From Our Dinner Auction Chair
On behalf of the Birdville High School Mighty Hawk Band we are requesting your support of the Annual Jazz Dinner and Auction, a very special event that highlights the accomplishments of the Jazz Bands and helps raise funds for the continuation of the band program and Birdville High School. The Jazz Dinner and Auction will be held on Friday, April 30th at the Hurst Conference Center Parking Lot Rooftop
We are hoping this year’s event will be a tremendous success, raising $15,000 - $20,000 for the Band.
The Jazz Dinner Auction is one of our biggest fundraising events of the year. The money raised from this event helps to keep our band fees at a minimum. This is where we need your help! We need items to auction off.
If you have items or services to donate for the auction please email Danielle Russell-Manning and firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text (480) 432-5694 to donate items. In past years we have auctioned off Cowboys, Rangers, and Stars Tickets, Vacation Get-A-Ways, American Airline miles, TVs, Apple products, Golf Tickets, and lots of Mighty Hawk Band keep sakes just to name a few . We cannot do any of this without the support of our Band Family and need your help. No item donation or service is too small. In return for your donation, we would like to offer you the following promotional consideration:
Recognition in the dinner program
Recognition on auction signage
Recognition on the Mighty Hawk Band website
Recognition on all Mighty Hawk social media venues
Thank you so very much for your consideration and willingness to support our program.
