The Band Boosters and the Band of Pride will be having a fundraiser Thursday, September 28, in the Butler parking lot. They will be selling pork chop and chicken sandwiches, either by themselves for $5 or in a meal with chips, drink, and homemade brownies, for $7.

You can either contact a band member or call John at 270-839-3980 to place your order.
This fundraiser, and many others, help with the Band of Pride’s expenses throughout the year. John said that it takes between $30,000 and $40,000 to cover transportation costs, uniforms, hotel stays, and more. Two thirds of those funds come from the community, whether it’s donations of money or time and personal equipment.
