An overflow crowd of Booker High School friends, teachers, parents and supporters enjoyed lively conversation, Southern classics, cocktails and live entertainment by the band, NeXXLevel at a fun- filled annual fundraiser called, “A Bull Market at the Blue Rooster.” BHS musicians greeted guests as they walked passed a unique line up of themed gift baskets that were awarded to the highest bidders during a silent auction. The event took place on April 28. Proceeds will support new band uniforms, a sound system for the mock courtroom on campus, aerial microphones for the theater and special initiatives such as student reward and recognition programs .
