South Cobb High School's Blue Eagle Marching Band was selected from over 350 applicants to be the ONLY band to represent Georgia at the 2009 Presidential Inaugural Parade. While this is an amazing opportunity for the high school band members, it is extremely expensive to transport a 95 member band and all their equipment to Washington, D.C. These kids and their families just don't have the approximately 700 dollars per student it will cost to fund this trip. Q100's 'The Bert Show' had a fundraiser yesterday, and, along with several other fundraisers at the school and in the community, managed to raise just over 50,000 dollars. They are still about 20,000 dollars short of their anticipated costs for this trip. Please copy this link into your browser and take 2 minutes read about these students, and then if you feel so moved, please donate whatever you feel comfortable with. Even if it's only a dollar or five, every little bit helps, and these students are worth it!
