More than 110 members of the Monarch High School Coyote Marching Band will be in the communities of Superior and Louisville this Saturday, August 22, collecting donations. This door-to-door campaign is the band’s primary fund-raising activity.
“The band marches because of donations from parents, friends, and neighbors,” commented new Monarch Band Director Chuck Stephen. “This really is a community effort to keep these kids on the field all season long. The money you contribute tells these dedicated students that their commitment is worth it and that the residents of Superior and Louisville are behind them as they enter competition season.”
Money raised on Tag Day is used to purchase and service instruments and to pay for music, performance design, transportation, uniforms, scholarships, and so much more. The Coyote Marching Band has competed in the finals of Colorado’s 4A State Marching Band Competition the last three years, finishing in sixth place in 2015. Their show “Spanish Fantasy” is in the works and you will be able to catch performances at upcoming home football games. The band will also march in the Louisville Labor Day Parade.
If you miss the knock on your door, you can still contribute by mailing your donation to Monarch Music Boosters, Tag Day, 329 Campus Dr., Louisville, CO 80027. Monarch Music Boosters is a recognized 501(c)3 organization, so your contribution should be tax-deductible (consult your tax preparer).
