The “Glam the Band” campaign for uniforms for the Woodbury High School Marching Royals has achieved sufficient funding to-date to pay for the jackets and pants.
This amounts to about two-thirds of the total cost for 150 official marching band uniforms.
The remaining third, or $20,000, will complete the purchase of the other uniform details such as the hats and plumes.
The Marching Royals hope to wear their new uniforms when they perform their half-time field show at the first home football game Sept. 11 against Park High.
