Patrick's Macy's American Band Fund

Hello supporters! This is Patrick, and I am an alto saxophone player.

I just received news that I've been chosen to be a part of the 2013 Macy's Great American Marching Band (that's the one you see on television.) I look forward to representing the State of Mississippi; however, I need to raise funds to get there!


The hotel stay, meals and transportation to and from practice costs $1,500. I will also need to purchase an airline ticket to get from Tupelo, MS to NYC. I will be there for a week, and most of my time will be practicing for the parade.


I greatly appreciate your help to get me to New York City for this incredible opportunity. All donations big or small will be appreciated.



Thanks for your help!


(This is Emily, and I'm Patrick's mom. I would add that Patrick has been practicing non-stop since he was in sixth grade and received his first saxophone. He has been talking about the Macy's Parade for years. All of his directors and classmates will vouch for his hard work, dedication, talent and leadership. I would write more, but he really doesn't want me to say anything.)
