The Rockford High School Marching Band is going to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this fall... hopefully! But the total costs are like... $1,500 per student, and there are over 300 students in the band!
They're running a bunch of fundraisers this summer to help pay for it. So how can you help?
You can make a direct donation to the band using PayPal. Check out the Rockford band website for a donate link!
They're also running a GoFundMe page for those who can't or don't want to use PayPal. There are a lot of details, and you can see people donating money in other people's names/in memoriam to those who love/loved the Rockford marching band.
Businesses can sponsor the band and get a call out on their website. Great advertising opportunity, a great cause, and it's tax deductible!
On July 21st at 6:30pm the band is hosting a dinner and auction at the Rockford Sportsman's Club. The cost is $25 per person and includes dinner, dancing, a raffle, and a cash bar.
On September 1st in partnership with KOOL Chevrolet, the band is raffling off a 2017 Chevy Cruze. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased on Monday nights from 8:30-9pm at Rockford High School or during regular business hours at KOOL Chevrolet any time up until September 1st.
Help the Rockford High School Marching band make it to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! They still have a ways to go and every dollar helps!
