Help Me March Gold!

Hey everyone! I am very proud to announce that I have been offered a spot to perform for the Open Class Drum Corps, Gold! It's a dream of mine to march a Drum Corps and I know that with some help, my dream will become a reality. Let me tell you a little about myself, my name is Abel Valencia and I am 17 years old. I am a senior at Canyon Springs High School and am on track to graduate this June 2018! I have been involved in the marching band and concert band at my high school for the last 4 years and even did band for my 3 years of middle school. Of the many different hobbies I have, reading, video games, etc. Music is one of my favorite, if not my favorite. I have played the Euphonium for the last 7 years and have played the trombone for the last 4 years. Gold is an Open Class Drum and Bugle Corps based out of the San Diego area. Gold travels to many different venues in many different states to perform from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena to Lucas Oil stadium in Indianapolis. This Drum Corps is very competitive and the tour would go from the end of June until August. To go on this exciting tour there is a hefty price. I would need about $3,000 to cover the tour fee and other expenses on tour. I am attempting to get a job and work to try and earn some of the money myself but even if I got a job this very moment I would not be able to make enough for the tour. I am so grateful to have the parents that I have, as they have been so supportive of this activity but they would not be able to pay for this themselves. This is why I am asking for donations of any kind to try and help me cover the cost of this amazing activity. Any donation will help, even one dollar gets me one step closer to my goal of being able to march with this Drum Corps. Thank you for your support and taking the time to read this!
