A food truck rally at a school? Why not? Anything goes when the school choir is trying to get to Carnegie Hall.

On Saturday, Mayberry Cultural and Fine Arts Magnet Middle School at 207 S. Sheridan (near Maple and Meridian) will be the site of a lunchtime food truck rally, the proceeds of which will be used to help the school choir finance a trip to Carnegie Hall.

Among the trucks planning to attend and donate 10 percent of their Saturday profits: Hot 2 Trot Gourmet Hot Dogs, Funky Monkey Munchies, Monica’s Homemade Mexican Food Truck, Sunflower Espresso, Brown Box Bakery, Lynn’s Curbside Cookout, Uno Mas, B.S. Sandwich Press and The Big Apple. Cameo Cakes’ new sweets truck, Street Sweets by Cameo Cakes, also will be there, making its Wichita debut. Blue Baboon Books also will be there.

Mayberry’s Lady Panthers choir has been invited to perform at New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall in March, but choir director Danny Darrington is trying to raise at least $50,000 to help pay for the trip, which would include 40 students and 25 parents and staff.

(Full disclosure: My daughter attends Mayberry Middle School. She’s not in the choir, but I’ve heard them sing, and they’re great.)
