Spring is coming, and young band members' hearts are turning to thoughts of ... fundraising. Well, actually, that is probably only the band parents, because we have depleted our reserves to pay for the new uniforms. Did you know that a new band uniform costs $585? Last year we got the new hats, which the band proudly wore this Fall, and next Fall we will have them in their whole uniforms. But, we need to get those reserves restocked. So, here's our spring fundraiser!
The Marshall Band students are now selling tickets for a drawing on June 8th. For $5, you get not only a chance to win a $500 Amazon gift card, a GoPro HERO4 Silver Action Camera, an Amazon Echo, or a night at the Ritz Carlton, but also the satisfaction of helping the Marching Statesmen, a Virginia Honor Band. You need not be present to win.
Thank you to everyone who has already bought tickets from a band student, or in front of a local business on May 6!
We currently offer 2 ways to buy tickets, until May 31:
- From a band student you know
- Online (via Paypal, credit card or debit card), at marshallband.org. Click on "Donate Today!" and then you will see the Donate button. You can put a note in the remarks that it is for tickets (but when in doubt, we are giving tickets).
