After the greetings by emcee Vineeta Sawkar, 2009 CHA President Angela Delong Gatzlaff, and Dr. Alan Goldbloom, President and CEO of Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, the band continued with dinner music.

Dinner music ( around 8:25 to 9:30) (To help keep the volume down, the trumpet section used flugelhorns except when some kind of mute was called for. As requested by the organizers, we excluded vocals from the dinner music. Furthermore, we set up with the drums in the corner and the trumpets facing across the stage, rather than out toward the audience. The entree was served starting around 8:50. We didn't have enough quiet songs on the list to fill the extended dinner time, so we repeated the first four.):

When I Fall in Love (GN-flugelhorn; no repeats)
I Left My Heart in San Francisco (Glen P.)
When You Wish Upon a Star (GN-flugelhorn)
Li'l Darlin' (Dan-flugelhorn)
In a Mellow Tone (Mike B., Bob-flugelhorn)
Longer (GN-flugelhorn)
Groovin' Easy (Glen P.)
Not So Loud, Please! (Jeff-flugelhorn)
Blue Skirt Waltz (instrumental)
Moonlight Serenade (Kay)
Blue Skies (instrumental; ad lib solo by GN-flugelhorn)
When I Fall in Love (GN-flugelhorn; no repeats)
I Left My Heart in San Francisco (Glen P.)
When You Wish Upon a Star (GN-flugelhorn)
Li'l Darlin' (Dan-flugelhorn)

At this point, Vineeta introduced Karen Lee Sorbo, who gestured toward "Belle", who made her way through the tables and sang "Beauty and the Beast," accompanied by Raymond Berg on the RBB's piano. After her performance, the band left the stage as Karen conducted the auction of six items and presided over the Fund-a-Need donations for the Midwest Children's Resource Center.
