This is a “State Year” for the Wildcats, which means this is a year 4A bands get to contend for a state title. Kennedale has made the state level competition the last 6 times it has competed and finished 5th in the state in 2014 and 8th in 2016. Our goal is to head to State again this year for a 7th straight run!!!!
Our show is better than ever and we feel that we will continue our momentum and will be a State Championship contender once again.
As in years past we are raising funds to help offset the cost of traveling to San Antonio for the finals. The KBBC tradition is to raise funds amongst the parents, grandparents, family, friends, alumni and other Wildcat Band supporters around the world to pay for our students to travel in actual charter busses rather than the yellow school busses. We also try and help with some of the other expenses and things that make the trip a success and memorable for the band.
We have set a minimum goal of $15,000 which is the base amount we need to cover the commitment we have to our children to get there. Honestly, if I thought we could hit it, I would ask for $25,000 this year. I believe in the community that supports our band and I know we will exceed our minimum $15,000. Remember even small donations of $25 - $50 will add up to big support. We ask only that you give what you can to help these 170 students that have dedicated countless hours and sweat to continue a tradition of success. By the way, if you are part of a company that will match your gift, feel free to contact us directly to coordinate that opportunity. If your company would like to sponsor the Wildcat Band at a more meaningful level, we would love to talk to you too.
Our District leadership has been amazing with updating our marching band uniforms, a brand new drumline, and the purchase of our new super trailer and pull truck. Even with all of their support, the band program itself is still in need of quite a few things to maintain the State-Level success for both the marching band and concert bands throughout our small, five school, district. We are one band family from beginner band to the marching seniors and every dollar the KBBC raises helps our family. Any funds not needed for the State trip will be directly applied to supporting the band program and our students.
All donations to the band are tax deductible and we can provide you the appropriate documentation for your support.
Thank each of you for your support of our amazing Wildcat Band program. Without the parents and families supporting our students these successes would be nearly impossible.
If you have any questions or other thoughts on helping the band feel free to email us or reach out to me directly via the contact info on this campaign.
