Background Music
for Norwalk Student Education Foundation

Norwalk Student Education Foundation Fundraiser

Hello - We are looking for a quartet for a couple hours on November 2, something like 5-7 perhaps for the Norwalk Student Education Foundation (NSEF) fundraiser. This would be background music while we do cocktail, appetizers, and the silent auction, prior to the live auction, I believe. Here are the event details:

Norwalk Student Education Foundation Annual Fundraiser
Carper Vineyard and Winery - 4603 Dakota Street. Norwalk, Iowa 50211
