While at the Georgetown men’s basketball game on Saturday, the Eastern High School marching band played at halftime and they mentioned they are raising funds to take a trip to New Orleans in April to play and visit Southern University, so band members can talk to the band director about possible scholarships. The Go Fund Me page is below:
eastern2neworleans The Blue and White Marching Machine is excited about the opportunity to travel to Louisiana. This will be the first time our band will be showcased in that region in over 20 years! We will be traveling to New Orleans April 28th-May 1st. As you know, it can be costly to move a large organization, so we need your help. All donations will be greatly appreciated as we embark on this adventure for our students. They will learn about the rich history of New Orleans, additionally, visit and tour prestigious HBCU “Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While on campus, students will meet with the director of bands and university administrators to discuss scholarship opportunities.
Thank you for your continued support
