West Jefferson High School music students presented a Christmas Cabaret on Dec. 18. The night included music, a dessert and drink bar, pictures with Santa, an ugly sweater contest, gingerbread house decorating, a craft table, an art gallery, Santa letter boxes, and coloring and activity pages.

The event served as a fundraiser for the band and choir programs; it also benefited two local charitable organizations, the Good Samaritan Food Pantry and Santino’s Crusade for a Cancer-Free World.
