Take Selfies to Support CP Band Traveling to DC

Aug 29, 2016 11:46AM ● By Elena Hutslar

College Park High School is home to a concert band, symphonic band, wind ensemble, and jazz band, as well as a string orchestra, chamber orchestra and symphony orchestra. Our bands and orchestras consistently earn high marks at festivals across northern California.  In spring 2017, College Park High School’s Concert Band, Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble travel to Washington DC on a performance tour that includes exchange concerts, clinic with a university music educator, performance by the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center, and touring and performing at one of our national monuments. 

They are currently fundraising to make this trip possible. Their second fundraising event:

The “World’s Greatest Race!” returns to Pleasant Hill! WGR is a family friendly selfie adventure race that takes place throughout downtown Pleasant Hill. Each team must solve clues that lead to downtown destinations where they take group selfies. Smartphone assistance is allowed for solving these quirky clues.  The first team to the finish line with photo evidence that all clues were solved correctly is the winner! The entry fee is only $10 for the chance to be crowned grand champion of The World’s Greatest Race!

The World’s Greatest Race! takes place Saturday, October 8, and the entire community is encouraged to come out and join in the fun! For more information, contact [email protected].
