Please help me go on my band trip to Chicago!!

Hello friends and family,
As many of you know, I am a member of the Westwood High School band, and this year we were one of the few high schools selected to play at the Midwest Clinic in Chicago, Illinois, which is the largest instrumental music education conference in the world. After lots of hard work, I was chosen as one of seven percussionists from our school  to play with the band on this trip, and I feel honored to get to represent both my school and my band in this exciting event. Over the years, the expenses of band and the band trips have really started to pile up, and this year I wanted to help my parents as much as I could with this next pricey trip. I am making this gofundme to ask for your help through donations and prayers along this journey. I hope you will consider supporting me through this trip to the Midwest Clinic in Chicago, Illinois!
