• Private music lessons from Music Junction

For those able to, there are an additional 20 opportunities included in the auction to directly sponsor the purchase of a new musical instrument, a trip for a student musician to participate in a performance, or replacement of the 30-year-old marching band uniforms.
“We are extremely fortunate to live in a community like Burbank that values education and the opportunities it provides for students,” said Kiersten Walker, JBHS IMA online auction chair. “There are businesses and individuals that generously provided tickets, collectibles and experiences to us so that we could offer them to those both within and outside the IMA. This is a great opportunity for people both around Burbank and throughout Southern California to bid on some great things and feel great while doing it.”
The JBHS Instrumental Music Association Booster Club Inc. is a nonprofit organization. For more information about the program and how to support it, visit jbhsima.org.
