LWBBB Meeting October 18

Lakota West Band Business Boosters (LWBBB) was formed as a way for band parents who are also local business owners to support and promote the band.  The LWBBB holds monthly breakfast meetings at 8 am at the First Watch Union Centre Boulevard location on the morning of our Upbeat Club meetings (3rd Thursday of the month).  For more information, contact Kevin Moorman at 604-2997.

Sponsorship Team forming

The Lakota West Upbeat Club is developing a new corporate sponsorship program for 2018.  Local businesses will have the opportunity support the band in exchange for advertising on our concert program, website, and/or truck.  We’re looking for a few volunteers (ideally parents of freshmen and sophomores) to help build the program.  If you have a knack for graphic design, we’d love to have your help putting together our concert program for the year.  Local business owners with fundraising experience or community contacts would be a great help soliciting sponsors and designing the structure of the program.  Finally, if your business would be interested in sponsoring in the band, please contact us at Some of the items this group may work on include concert programs, solo & ensemble guide, potential truck wrap, senior pic keepsake, bannars, Jazz n’ Cakes placemat, video,  and program, and sponsorship promotional materials. This team would work closely with the Upbeat co-presidents and communications lead.

Taste for Music
