Please ensure marchers have eaten before they come, have some snacks and drinks with them and have money for concessions. We are the 1st band in our division to perform and there are several after us so the students should have time to grab something from concessions after we perform.

URGENT! Lots of help is needed to make this banquet the huge success that it has been in the past! We are need of at least 5-6 more volunteers to help gather donations for our raffle baskets.

If you know of any business that might like to donate to our scholarship fundraiser, please use the Scholarship Donation letter located on the Music Mentors website. This letter explains that we are a non-profit, tax exempt organization, what the donation is for and how to donate. The website also has a list (Scholarship Donation Progress Worksheet) of the businesses we have already contacted and those who have donated. We want to be sure we do not approach a business multiple times.
