The South Gwinnett High School Marching Band performs throughout the Southeast region at competitions and festivals. The rigorous demand of transporting, feeding, and other operational expenses for a group of 120+ members takes many levels of financial support. We start every marching season with a fundraising goal of over $10,000. To raise this money, students are asked to be involved in many fundraising activities primarily throughout the marching band season. Students are asked to contribute/fundraise a fair share amount of $300.00 each; with an additional amount to cover trips. In the 60 year history of the South Gwinnett High School “Band of Stars” there have been many notable performances. The band has performed at Lake Lanier, Six Flags, North Carolina A & T, winning the Atlanta Falcons Drumline competition and performing at Mercedes Benz Stadium, the Chick-fil-A Peach And we look to add more to the list this school year.
One of the best and most effective ways students can raise money is by acquiring sponsorships that go directly toward the amount needed to be raised by the student. Most fundraisers only give up to 50% profit and the consumer gets some type of product in return. With a sponsorship, 100% of the money goes toward the needs of the student. If you would like to be a sponsor, go to the shop and select "Sponsor a Band Member". Your donation is tax deductible. Please consult your tax advisor and keep a copy for your records. Thank you for your continued support!
