Letter: A band booster thank-you
On behalf of the Woodbury Royals Band Boosters,Inc., I want to thank all who helped organize the basketball game between the Woodbury High School staff and the Woodbury Public Safety personnel Wednesday night, Feb. 18.
Many people volunteered their time to the success of this event and many Woodbury businesses donated raffle and concession items to support the Marching Royals "Glam the Band" campaign.
The benefit to the Marching Royals at the end of the night was $1,312. This amount will be matched for a total of $2,624. To put this amount in perspective, it is enough to purchase six complete uniforms.
Our total goal for 150 uniforms is $60,000. The basketball event brings the total funds donated, committed or fundraised for Glam the Band since mid-November 2008 to $36,658 -- or 91 of the 150 uniforms are now funded.
Thank you to the Woodbury High School staff and the Woodbury public safety folks for putting together a great show.
Thank you to the businesses, the volunteer announcers, officials and band booster parents.
And thank you to all who came to cheer on the teams. The event would not have been successful without all the support!
Deb Aamodt, president
