The College Park Instrumental Boosters have organized a Selfie Adventure Race on February 7 at 11am in Pleasant Hill Park as part of a fundraiser for the Symphony Orchestra and String Orchestra at College Park High School. The students are fundraising for travel to Florida this April. Planned performance venues include Disney World, Epcot Center, and Universal Studios. The students will have a clinic at the University of Florida and share their skills at a joint concert with a local Florida high school. Educational activities will be included throughout the week, including time at the Kennedy Space Center. “The tour experience extends musicians’ abilities, bonds student musicians into a more cohesive ensemble, and gives students the opportunity to showcase both their talents and the musical excellence of the College Park High School Instrumental Music program,” said Frank Monaghan, a College Park instrumental music booster.

Over 70 high school musicians and their equipment will be traveling across the country. The boosters have raised over $90,000 as of this printing and still need to raise $27,000 by Feb. 15, 2015. The community can help fund this trip by going to the GoFundMe website: to make a donation of any size. Any community support is greatly appreciated.

Students work in teams of two (or more) and receive a list of crazy clues. After solving each clue, teams go to locations and snap photos of all team members there. Team members use the Internet to solve clues. Photos are inspected at the finish line. The team to reach the finish line first with the correct photos wins the team trophy. “The idea for the ‘World’s Greatest Race…Ever!!!: A Selfie Adventure Race’ was conceived by parent members of the College Park Instrumental Music Boosters organization,” continued Monaghan.
