The Harker Heights High School’s Red Brigade Band and Avalon Color Guard will be entertaining the Harker Heights residential areas as part of a fundraiser on Saturday.
The march-a-thon fundraiser will last from 8 to 10 a.m.
The band will march two routes, one around Skipcha neighborhood and another around the Mountain View neighborhood, providing music and entertainment for two hours. It will also provide seven-minute lawn concerts for $50 for those who live along the routes. Concerts must be arranged through the band booster president.
Through donations, the band is hoping to raise $17,000 this year. Currently, the band has raised $800.
“The donations will help with scholarships, food for special activities, and special transportation needs,” said Clair Stringham, band booster president.
There are three ways in which students are able to obtain donations:
•Students are asked to each get five, $10 pledges
•A donation jar along route and at stopping points during the concert
