Please Support the Corps in 2018!
As we near the end of 2018 and reflect on a monumental year, we’re looking back on all we have reason to be thankful. Over the last year we’ve run two fundraisers raising a total of $9300. Your support enabled us to acquire our a used 24 foot equipment trailer (our first ever), another front ensemble instrument, newer Pearl drum line, and more! It also allowed us to offer low cost group lessons for local youth; perform multiple clinics in Central Ohio, and Chicago, and much more.
Our needs for 2018 are significant and we need your support to help provide a higher quality experience for members, and educational programs for local youth. Your support this year will enable us to begin replacing our aging 2 valve bugles, many of which are over 30 years old, and need to be replaced as soon as possible. We need to replace our vibraphones, which are nearly 20 years old and have been rebuilt many times. We also need to purchase general music items like loudspeakers (Long Ranger, etc), drumline stands, horn cases, music stands, and more. With the loss of our rehearsal facilities, our rehearsal facilities expenses will increase significantly.
The cost of putting on community programming continues to rise, we work to find ways to ensure affordability to members, and make every donation count. We rely more than ever on the generous support of alumni and friends. Please make the Saints a priority in your giving in 2018 and beyond. As a small organization, every donation has a big impact in helping keep music and arts in our community.
