Ryan is in the Center Grove High School marching band. This is his third year marching with the Trojans. He plays the Mellophone and absolutely loves it. He also participates in Jazz band and Pep band. A couple of day a week he also goes to the middle school across from the high school and helps with the 6th grade band. Last year his band placed 4th at State and 9th in the Bands of America Grant National competition out of 98 bands. They have a very successful band program. But, because of all the success, there are a lot of costs to run an award winning program like this. Bands fees are $650 per student and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day trip will be $1300 per student. Sierra is currently in 8th grade and participates with the Center Grove Fall/winter guard program. She will perform with the High school fall guard next year as a freshman and be a part of the Marching Band. Sierra is active in her youth group at church and recently participated in a 30 hour famine to raise money for the needy.
I love that both of my children are in Marching band/Color guard, but it is very expensive. I will have to pay $650 for each of them for band plus $1350 a piece for the Macy's trip. That's about $4000 I will have to pay next year. I am trying to raise about $2700 to cover the cost of the band trip. The band is working on a few fundraisers, but the money will help to pay off their band fees first because those have to be payed for them to go on the trip.
Even if you can only donate $5, I appreciate the help. This is going to be an amazing once in a life time opportunity for them and I really want them both to be able to go. I will post updates as the fundraiser goes along. We have 13 months!!Thanks to all that are able to donate. And please forward this on to anyone you know that might.If you don't want to make an online payment, please hit the contact me button at the top of the page and we can make other arrangements.
