The Loretto High School Band has been selected to represent the state of Tennessee in the National Memorial Day Parade. The parade takes place on May 27th and the excitement is mounting!
Being chosen to represent the entire state of Tennessee in Washington D.C. is a huge honor, but it takes money to get there. The parade is 41 days away and they are currently short of their $60k fundraising goal. But the band KISS is providing assistance to help them reach their goal.
The Loretto High School Band originally reached out to KISS asking for a donation to a fundraising auction but KISS had an even better idea. They invited the band to their April 9th Bridgestone Arena show to play as the fans head inside. They are playing KISS favorites as well as a few marching band songs to get the crowd pumped up!
And Band Director Darrell Boston jumped at the chance to play outside the concert because he’s a lifelong KISS fan. He says his mother took him to a KISS concert in 1977 when he was in 7th grade.
The band is accepting donations at Bridgestone Arena, through their website, and through Fundly. They still have a little over $20,000 to go before they reach their goal. Help Loretto High School get to Washington D.C.
