NBC 5 Story. Thank you Maria Guerrero and NBC 5 DFW for caring and making this fundraiser possible.  

Dallas Morning News article that has attracted an upcoming National NBC Universal Story with Harry Smith! this October! 

*** 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!
