AURORA, Neb. (KSNB) – The Aurora Band Boosters had their 19th annual waffle fundraiser on Sunday and dozens of people showed their support.
“This is the first time with the COVID restrictions we put on takeaway orders and that has added a new crease to everything that is going on. So I’d say things overall are very, very good running, “said Dan, band director of Aurora High School Sodomka.
People paid $ 7 to get all the waffles and sausage you can eat. They also bought raffle tickets for $ 10.
“We do the waffleman and then we have a big raffle where people get prizes and then the money goes to our band booster to support our band program and our children,” said Kate Metzger, band director of Aurora Middle School .
At first, the organizers feared that they might not be able to run the fundraiser this year due to COVID-19.
“We were very nervous and when things opened up,” said Sodomka. “Our administration was very supportive and said, ‘If the waffleman comes, we’ll find out. “
Without this fundraiser, the boosters would not be able to purchase instruments, meals during competitions, and other needs.
“Just any extra things we might need that aren’t on the normal school year budget,” Sodomka said. “You are there to be able to give us this help.”
The waffle fundraiser ran from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. People who didn’t make it this time just have to wait until next year to get a plate.
