*** Click here to DONATE gently used in-working condition instruments to our program *** 


The total need for the band is $100,000+ and the instruments are itemized below. 

The total EMERGENCY need is $25,000  to get through THIS IMMEDIATE Crisis!

We went from "Worst to First!" from 2012-2018 in UIL Competition under the direction of selfless leader Chris Evetts.  Chris grew our band from 29 members to a Championship crew of over 130 students!

Many Many of our kids instruments are completely broken or patched together with duct tape! There are even children who march with frozen horns or with no instrument at all just to keep the line with their fellow bandmates.

This is one of the only chances that some of the kids will have a chance to get a scholarship to college or benefit from the experience of being part of a team.

We appreciate anything that you may be able to contribute and shares are equally as valuable!

Phase 1
Immediate Emergency Funding Phase Almost Complete (96.3%)

As of 3.30 PM September 2, 2018 Sunday (Day 5) you and your shares have raised $19,268 of the emergency $20,000 that was needed for our children.

Phase 2
Corporate/Business Sponsor Involvement to reach the $100,000 need of the band, before the national story that Anchor Harry Smith of NBC Universal will be filming at and around Woodrow Wilson High School (October 11-12) leading up to our Big Home Game Rivalry vs Bryan Adams that Friday night .

Harry Smith personally chose Woodrow Wilson Band, out of number of other Cinderella stories, to do this story on pursuant to reading the August 13th Dallas Morning News Story (link below) that recognized and honored the “29 and Worst to 130+ Strong and FIRST!” that Chris Evetts and our kids achieved 2012-2018.

This project is bigger than just providing hard working and dedicated winners with functioning instruments. It is about showing Dallas, the Nation, and most importantly our children that good people, hard work, pride, and strong community can prevail when working together.

This National NBC Story is an opportunity to strength community relationships for ALL groups within our schools, restore Woodrow Wilson's legacy and pride to the top of DISD, and show EVERYONE that our Lakewood Area, Highland Park, and University Park Communities are truly special..

I want to personally thank each and everyone for their gracious compassion in helping our program and children in need.

Please continue to help by sharing, posting, and communicating Phase 2 with our LW, HP, and UP community businesses that all of us support with our continuous patronage. Their tax deductible contributions will truly make this the perfect ending to a Cinderella story of a marching band's rise to top and the special people and businesses that rose to the occasion to support them.

GoGo Woodrow!
