Help Send Landstown High School Marching Band to the VMBC Championships!
As we are off to a great start this year, coming in 2nd in our group size and 3rd overall, in the entire competition, out of 16 bands. We are still under our total financial goal to participate in the Virginia Marching Band Cooperative (VMBC) Virginia State Championships, at Liberty University, in Lynchburg, VA. We have planned and budgeted tremendously well, however with an increase of members, we have grown out of the Class I and into the Class II group! This enlargement has been great for our band, but the growth has also increased our costs needed to transport and house our band members on this overnight competition.
Some of our major costs are:
Band Competition Fees
Two Charter Buses (we can’t use school buses because of the distance)
Rental Truck and fuel to transport the equipment and props
Two Nights at a hotel for 63 kids and 14 staff
Provide Meals, Snacks, and Water while traveling
Partial scholarships to a few members in need of assistance
This will be our THIRD trip for our marching band to compete at the VMBC Championships!
2017 Bronze Metal, 3rd place
2016 Silver Metal, 2rd place
The VMBC Championships this year will take place November 3, at Liberty University, in Lynchburg VA. Any donation amount will help in sending our band to this commendable and enriching performance experience!
