Battle of the Bands

The Modesto Elks Lodge teamed up Sunday with the Stanislaus County’s Sheriff’s Department and Behavioral Health and Recovery Services to offer kids and their parents a palatable “just say no” message regarding drug, alcohol and tobacco abuse. The lodge held its first battle of the bands, which featured five contestants, as a draw for kids and their parents. Once at the lodge, the kids had a chance to win coupons for ice cream, baseball tickets and other goodies if they could correctly answer questions on drug education and similar topics. Audience members also munched on free food. Organizers said the event had drawn about 75 people as of early Sunday evening. The bands each received $50 for participating and competed for cash prizes of $300 for being picked the top band, $150 for second place and $50 for third place. Members of the band Kickstart evaluated the performers.
