A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR DONORS AND SPONSORS THE BAND WILL BE GOING TO PEARL HARBOR TO REPRESENT THE STATE OF ARIZONA AND THE USS ARIZONA AT THE OFFICIAL 75TH ANNIVERSARY PEARL HARBOR MEMORIAL PARADE DECEMBER 7TH 2016!  WE COULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS WITHOUT ALL OF YOUR HELP AND IT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!

UPDATE!

The Band continues towards their fundraising goal and they are still in need of your help!  So far they we are about $24,000 from our goal to send the whole band to Pearl Harbor and deadlines are fast approaching. We greatly appreciate any support you can give!

This year, the Shadow Mountain Marching Matadors have been selected as the official ambassador for the State of Arizona to represent the USS Arizona in Hawaii at the 75th anniversary Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade on December 7, 2016.  Each of the eight battleships moored in Pearl Harbor at the time of the attack will be represented by an outstanding high school band from the state that bears its name, and we were the sole band selected from Arizona!

While we are extremely proud of this honor, we cannot do this alone.  This letter is to ask for your assistance with our fundraising efforts. To cover the cost of our band fees, including this trip, we need to raise over $150,000.  Your generous donations help offset the costs of the band program, providing the funds we need for musical instruction, equipment, competition fees, and travel expenses. While we strive to be self-reliant and learn responsibility through our program, we realize that we cannot do this without outside assistance.  Please help!
