Hi! My name is Marissa Najima, a senior from the Laguna Creek Marching Band and Color
Guard in Elk Grove, California. Each year we raise over $75,000 to support band activities. This allows us
to travel and compete with other bands in California, to provide working equipment and uniforms, and
to sponsor numerous highly competitive and successful groups including a Jazz Ensemble, Marching
Band, Winter Guard, Winter percussion unit, and two concert bands. We are currently raising money
through Crowdrise as part of our annual fund drive.
In addition to our normal band expenses, we are also trying to raise money for purchase of new low
brass instruments including a new sousaphone, and an electric guitar and amplifier for the needed for
Jazz Ensmeble, as well as other instrument repair and acquisition.
Our goal for this drive is to raise approximately $10,000 towards these items. Won’t you please help us
to achieve this goal? It only takes a few minutes, and any amount will help. We thank you in advance for
considering the needs of our organization.
