PLD BAND FUNDRAISING The quality band program that we have come to expect from Dunbar is expensive. The Band receives very minimal financial support from the Fayette County Board of Education. Fundraising efforts by the Band Parents Association (BPA) and the members of the band provide the necessary funds to support the Band’s activities. The entire band program at PLD benefits from these funds, which are used to pay for such things as sheet music, instruments and instrument repair, other equipment, uniforms, instruction, and other administrative support. In addition, the funds raised by the PLD Band Parents Association pays for all transportation to assessments and contests and off-campus performances, food, lodging at contests, entry fees, and award patches.
YEAR-ROUND FUNDRAISERS All fundraising activities are for the ENTIRE BAND. We all benefit from the funds raised because we get our music, instrument repairs, buses, uniforms, and so much more from these funds.All we ask is that everyone do their best and participate to help support the band.
Snap Raise Campaign Snap Raise is a spring pledge drive for band. More information about this campaign will be sent out by the Fundraising Committee in the Spring.
Jackpot Bingo This is one of our biggest fundraisers that runs every Tuesday, all year long. Parents help sell bingo sheets, computers, organize pull-tabs, and even call the numbers. Students walk the floor selling pull-tabs and promoting our wonderful organization. All band students are expected to work at least 6 (six) evenings of BINGO and their parents are asked to work at least six (6) evenings. With 52 weeks of BINGO, that should be easy for all of us to do.
