There have been suggestions that we do more fundraising in preparation for the Hawaii trip. If this is something you have an interest in, please let us know. We will need more hands to assist in order to bring this to fruition.

Some fundraising facts as it pertains to our band:

  • All fundraising profits must be split evenly & equitably between all band members.
  • In order to provide a $100 savings to each student, we must earn $20,000 in profits.

If you are willing to assist in organizing any fundraising efforts, please email
