Annual Giving 2020: Recovery from COVID-19 Cancellations
This past month has presented new and unprecedented challenges for all. While our hope is that our extended band family, friends, and fans are managing this situation the best they can, our hearts go out to the young performers whose seasons have ended too soon. Our band students were in the midst of prepping for Jazzcakes, playing in the pit for the spring musical, and hitting their stride towards the peak of indoor drumline and color guard events.
The Centerville Band is proud to play host to several performance events throughout the year. With the support of many volunteers and even more fans, events like Jazzcakes (March), MEPA (March), and Soaring Sounds (Summer) have been critical fundraisers for ALL Centerville Band Programs.
We are truly blessed to live in a region where the performing arts are valued as an integral part of our community. We are equally blessed to have a strong foundation of volunteers to help along the way.
The loss of these events will mean that the Centerville Band will need to raise $40,000 to maintain our present budget and continued strength of its programs. Our 2020 Annual Giving Campaign will be used to help recoup from losses due to the unforseen cancellation of events and fundraisers.
