Orange Glen Marching Patriots...Drumming Up Support

Funding for the Arts in public school is VERY limited. We are in desperate need of support in order to have a Marching Band Field Show for 2013.

Drumming Up Support

Who are WE?

Orange Glen Marching Patriots have a long history of excellence and success dating back to the “Glory Years” in 1970s when they attended the Rose Parade and were more than 300 strong.  Despite cuts in funding and a shift in demographics, the Orange Glen music program has never lost its desire to provide a sense of discipline, focus, teamwork and camaraderie to its 100 members.

 

Why do WE need YOU?

At a time when public schools are facing drastically diminished budgets, arts education is one of the first subject areas to be cut.  Music plays an integral role in intellectual and personal development of students, but the funds are just not there. The Orange Glen Music Boosters Association (OGMBA) is the major financial supporter of the OG Music Department.  Last year was a constant battle to raise funds to keep our students competing with neighboring high schools that have strong financial support.  Our kids do not dwell on the inequity, they are just happy to be here, supporting each other and participating.

Due to the lack of funds, we face the possibility of not having a competition season this year.  The funds raised last year were just enough to cover the expenses, with nothing remaining to start the 2013 season.  All funds raised will go directly to the 2013 Marching Patriots Field Show.  Any excess funds will be used to purchase low brass instruments and repair old broken ones.

 

Where will YOUR money go? 

All funds raised will go to the following:

Music and drill design for the 2013 field show      $1,000

Drill Instructor and Drum line support                  $1,800

Competition Entrance Fees                                $1,200

Our Goal                                                          $4,000

 

How can YOU have an impact on US?

Students involved in organized music programs score higher on standardized tests, are kept off the streets and out of trouble and have a sense of belonging that makes high school a place they want to be.  We are reaching out to all those who believe in the value of music in our schools or anyone who has fond memories of band providing them a place to belong and a source of life-long friendships.
