Local restaurant helps support NSMS Choir during fundraiser

NSMS Choir Teachers accepted a check for $750 from Las Palomas Mexican Restaurant during their fundraiser night at Las Palomas where they received 10% of the money spent from the event. The evening was so successful that the restaurant ran out of food and they decided to match the 10% so that Choir received 20% of the evening tickets related to the fundraiser. We greatly appreciate Las Palomas support to our community and NSMS Choir.
