I'm asking we try to raise the money to keep things going without doing a sale. Although I love cheesecake (I've sold cheesecake for many years) I think we might appreciate not having to sell more stuff.
Here is the breakdown of our needs:
$2000 instrument repair
$2000 band festival (8th grade)
$1000 music purchase
Something else, I'd like to comission the EMU resident composer, Dr. Whitney Prince, to compose a piece of music for East Middle. This summer, he showed interest in writing for us, and I think it's a tremendous opportunity. His comission is about $2000.
We have 271 kids in band this year, and I'm trying to raise $7000. If you can, please donate what you can to help with our expenses. If EVERYONE in band gives $26, that will cover this year. From experience, a little less than half of my population participates in fund-raisers, so if you can donate more, please do.
