77 Day Annual Drive

On April 6, 2017, in News

From Executive Director, Chris Holland

Time flies and here we are at the critical Annual Campaign… but this year we are calling it an ANNUAL DRIVE! I have been inspired by the intensity of our members, staff, and design team over the last 7 months. We have a product, staff, and corps that will make you proud and they will entertain and compete on a high level. Goals were set in all areas and all deadlines and expectations were met. I have watched our new design team put together an incredible production. I have witnessed master educators teach and motivate. And… our 2017 members, after an intense audition process, have been working at a high level preparing for camps, traveling monthly and putting in a lot of work in between camps. Hearing and watching them perform… you can feel the spirit and intensity.

Now it is our turn…

We have a 77 day challenge – a 77 day focus to “drive” in funds. We keep a very expensive activity as affordable as possible for our members. This means that we challenge ourselves as an organization to raise significant money to offset the operation costs. Membership fees will only cover 33% of our drum corps operating costs. The annual campaign – this drive – represents the largest corps donor fundraising campaign of our calendar year. This year we are determined to raise $77,000.00 and I will always bet on our alumni and friends when it comes to supporting the “Giants” that carry on the tradition of the “Corps we Love.”

Please join the Crusader Club and help us support the members and hit our goal!
