Hello Band Families!
Tomorrow is Colorado Gives Day. The CCHS Band Program, with the Cherry Creek School Foundation, is raising money for new timpani for their percussion sections. A set of used timpani costs approximately $18,000. Why replace? The current timpani are no longer able to be tuned or repaired.
We need to reach as many band families, band alumni, and band supporters as possible before Colorado Gives Day on December 7th. Please help us get the word out and forward the CCHS Band Colorado Gives link to 10 contacts in your email list, and please share our posts on Facebook and Twitter to your pages. Many thanks for helping us in our effort!
To date, the Band has raised $2,143 of our $20,000 goal for Colorado Gives Day! And it is easy to have your employer match your contribution. To do so, provide your employer with your receipt and direct them to our Colorado Gives Day page: https://www.coloradogives.org/
