The Story

EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2015

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Jul 31, 2015

We can't march everywhere, the BMB needs wheels!

We need YOUR support and are seeking donations of any amount to purchase a 17 foot equipment truck. We currently rely on our members to use their own vehicles to travel to and from performances with expensive equipment and instruments and would like to provide a more safe and reliable way to travel! 

All donations up to $5,500 were matched by a generous donor, but we still have a ways to go until we reach our goal of $20,000!

 

About the Blugold Marching Band

Under the lead of Dr. Randy Dickerson, the Blugold Marching Band (BMB) has grown from just 60 to 300 members since Fall of 2000. The BMB has since updated its appearance, added new on-field components, and increased its performance schedule to include local, national, and international performances. As the BMB continues to grow, so do our expenses. From new uniforms to travel expenses and instrument repairs, the BMB replies on financial support from fans like you to keep marching on.
