**UPDATE 1/12/17** 

The Marching Pride was able to exceed their goal of raising $135,000 to send 265 students, chaperones, and staff to Washington D.C. because of the overwhelming support of donors throughout the United States. Thank you FOX News for sharing our story!

The  Marching Pride students, director, staff, parents, and PRHS Band Boosters would like to thank everyone who donated to our program to make this possible. It is because of the generosity of Americans from all over that our students will have the opportunity to march for the President of the United States. Words cannot express our gratitude! This experience will be one our students will never forget!

If you would like to continue to support the Marching Pride, donations can be mailed to Palmetto Ridge High School at 1655 Victory Lane Naples, FL 34120 Attention: Band Boosters.

The Palmetto Ridge High School Marching Pride has been selected to represent the community of Naples and the state of Florida in the 2017 Presidential Inaugural Parade. To march for the President of the United States is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. In the past 20 years, only four other marching bands in the state of Florida have had the opportunity to march in the Inaugural Parade. The Palmetto Ridge Marching Pride will be the first marching band in Collier County to march in the Presidential Inaugural Parade and we would love to send every one of our 235 members to Washington D.C. in January 2017. 

It will cost each student around $575 to attend this trip. The Palmetto Ridge Band Boosters have set a goal to raise $135,000 by January 2nd so that every member of the band can take part in this once in a lifetime opportunity. The majority of students at Palmetto Ridge High School live in Golden Gate Estates, which is the Northeastern part of Naples, FL. About 54% of our students are on Free/Reduced Lunch. We are reaching out to local businesses, contributors to the arts, corporations and individuals to help fund the cost of this trip. We want every student to participate,
but the cost of the trip is beyond the means of many of our working class families.

For more information on the band, please visit our website: www.palmettoridgemarchingpride.com

My wife and I saw these young people on Fox News and want to help them reach their goal to march at the Inauguration. We are proud to see these young people strive to meet this goal.
