Get Your Bulldog Britches On
The Fayetteville Bulldog Marching Band is scheduled to represent our community in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, but it will take more than a song. Each of the 210 band members was responsible for raising $1,250 individually to attend, but the fundraising deadline this weekend came up short.
Three years ago, the Band Boosters were able to collect $97,000 from 180 corporate and individual sponsors for the trip to the Rose Bowl Parade. This year, only about 6o donors have helped out with cash contributions of $13,000. Blame George Bush, the meltdown of corporate greed, or a Superintendent who doesn't care, if you want, but please help support our outstanding and dedicated band students with the trip expenses.
Don't leave our Band Books in the red. Go to the Bulldog Band website for more information, or just mail your donation to Fayetteville Band Boosters, P. O. Box 9623, Fayetteville, AR 72703.
