Davenport Central Boosters Boost Choir After Boosted Funds
Less than a week before a major trip, the Davenport Central High School choir got a phone call asking where their check to the bus company was.
Turns out, nothing on the trip had been paid for.
The Central High School choir boosters found out that $160 thousand in travel fee's they sent to their travel agent hadn't actually been spent on their trip, leaving them scrambling for answers less than a week before heading to New York City.
They don't know what happened to the money, but the choir boosters were able to dip into their rainy day funds. That combined with some donations have allowed the trip to go on.
It's completely paid for again, the entire itinerary has been saved and students didn't have to pay an extra dime.
The boosters vice president the last thing they wanted to do was cancel.
"I have a daughter who's talked about nothing but the New York trip for the last 60 days so I can't imagine telling her that it was off." choir booster Sue Honsey said.
The boosters are discussing taking legal action against their travel agent. They're not sure though that they can recover any of their money.
We put a call into the travel agent but had to leave a message. The Central High School choir leaves for New York on Tuesday.
