Ways to Support Centaurus Band Programs: New for 2018-19
RELOADABLE KING SOOPERS AND SAFEWAY GROCERY CARDS
Earn money for the band programs each time you buy groceries or gas with your King Soopers and Safeway grocery cards. Use the cards at any Kroger-owned (King Soopers) or Albertsons-owned (Safeway) grocery store, and these generous companies donate 5% to our General Fund. Learn more about how to get your cards and how to earn year-round for the band without spending anything extra.
VIRTUAL MARCHATHON 2018
During this summer’s Band Camp (7/23/18 to 8/1/18), students will mail, email, tweet and tag friends and family living outside of Lafayette with this “virtual” appeal. The social media/letter-writing campaign extends our annual door-to-door Marchathon event’s reach beyond people living in Centaurus’ home area (Lafayette and parts of Erie). Learn more.
Centaurus High School Marching Band is preparing for its 2018 competition season, which means that our annual Marchathon is coming up soon. On Saturday, August 25, 2018, the marching band will don their uniforms and “march” door-to-door throughout our BVSD-CHS “neighborhood” (over 10,000 homes). Our band is a point of community pride, and the students work hard all day, meeting our neighbors and soliciting financial support! The Lafayette/Erie community always comes through in a big way for the Centaurus Warriors Marching Band, and it’s extremely important that every student participates in this fun (and essential) day of fundraising. Parent volunteers are always needed to drive and to serve lunch. Learn more.
