With this crazy band life, has come an opportunity for me as an individual. I have been involved in coordinating one of the bands biggest fundraisers, Kingdom of the Sun Marching Band Festival. This is my first year and pretty much my first time for taking on anything of this size. We are talking about 22 bands and 2000 kids competing at our school! Very exciting, yet challenging! In an effort to keep this event going, we really need to show a profit for all our hard work and time spent. If I am not at a band competition or football game on the weekends, then I am lighting up the phones and approaching local businesses requesting donations anywhere from goods and services to monetary donations. My philosophy is always ask for everything I need and want, and the worse they can say is no. I have found many, if not most, people to be so generous and accomodating in our endeavor! Money is tough to come by just for basic educational needs let alone funds for the arts such as band. I enjoy doing what I do and if it gets us what we need for the band then I am ecstatic! Does it take a lot of time? YES. Does it require lots of follow up? YES. Is it worth it? YES. I think so! Every little bit helps the kids and the teachers as well as our ultimate goal, to raise funds for the band!
