Events and Fundraising

Fundraisers are a way for band members to work together and raise funds for the band. Fundraisers like these events below allow the band to offer unique musical educational experiences that our kids might not otherwise enjoy.

PAST EVENTS AND FUNDRAISERS

Band-O-Rama

This is an end of Marching Season performance. It will showcase all the exciting and toe-tapping music the students learned.

Come prepared! BBLZ and Mr. Thompson will auction off an opportunity to lead the Marching Band in playing “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond. That’s right, you can be a drum major for a song. It’s a fun opportunity in which a bunch of teenagers must follow your directions! Donations of cash, check, or credit card is accepted.

Mark your calendars for October 18th

Poinsettias

Sales start in October, and plants are distributed in early December. Students earn a portion of their plant sales deposited directly into their band account!
