Red Raider march on DC-July 2017
"A CAPITOL FOURTH" - America's Premiere Birthday Celebration is a three day event held in our Nation's Capitol which for the Band will include not only marching in the National Independence Day Parade down Constitution Avenue but also a guided tour of Historic Washington DC including all the Memorials & the Smithsonian Institute Museum, a visit to Arlington National Cemetery & the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to participate in a special US Military National Wreath Laying Ceremony, attendance at a concert on the Capitol Lawn featuring the National Symphony Orchestra and of course, Fireworks !!
It is a great honor for Coatesville Red Raider Marching Band to be nominated and given this awesome opportunity to bask in the National Spotlight... if only for one day. As always with opportunity comes responsibilty and this one brings with it a great financial undertaking for which we are asking for help from every man, woman & business who is reading this story about our incredible journey .
Your generous donation will help each Coatesville Band Student cover the expense of transportation to and from Washington DC via Coach Bus, modest hotel accommodations for three nights, admission costs for the guided tours and meals for the participant.
The Red Raider Marching Band has less than nine months to raise enough funds to send about 100 people, band students & chaperones, on this Adventure of a Lifetime!!!
We need and greatly appreciate everyone's help.... pass the word!!
We at CPMC would like to thank everyone who has donated to the Coatesville Marching Red Raiders so far ... we totally appreciate your support ! Continue to help us reach our goal by passing on our Go Fund Me information to all your family & friends. All proceeds will go to paying the expenses of the band students trip to Washington DC in July. Thanks again !!
