Wisc. (WLAX/WEUX) – Bring your appetite this weekend because for the first time in two years the cookie walk fundraiser will return. The fundraiser held for Memorial High School’s orchestra will feature cookies by the pound, live performances, a carnival, and even a visit from Santa and his North Pole crew.

Memorial Orchestra director Soma Pierce-Smit says, while the cookies may be a lure for people to come, the main event is the live holiday music her students have been working on. 

“Last year we were all virtual all online, all virtual all year, with just a little bit of rehearsing and one of the things that got us through honestly was thinking about, we’re going to put in all this work and it’s going to pay off when we actually get to be together. This group in particular really has shown that, and we’ve worked really hard and now we’re able to play together it’s a gift and we’re not going to take it for granted at all,” said Pierce-Smit.

The cookie walk is free and welcome to everyone. It will take place at Memorial this Saturday from noon to 2:30.
