Bradwell Institute Band Boosters have started a fundraising campaign to buy new band uniforms
Sharon Adams, boosters president, and Daryl Wolfram, band director, announced the start of the campaign this week.
Adams said the current Bradwell uniforms are almost 10 years old and must be replaced.
Adams and Wolfram have found a corporate sponsor to help the campaign. RG’s Fresh Burgers & Real Fries has agreed to be the corporate sponsor.
Boosters are going to sell RG’s gift cards for $10 each. RG’s has agreed to donate $3 to the Band Boosters for each RG’s card the boosters sell. RG’s will also sell the gift cards at the restaurant and make a similar donation for each card sold.
Michael Kohout, owner of RG’s said he is proud to be able to help the Bradwell Institute Band Boosters.
He said, “When my son was a band member I was a band booster for four years. I recognize the band members work very hard and long hours to learn to play an instrument and march. These kids really deserve the community’s support.”
The campaign will kick off tonight when the boosters will be selling RG’s gift cards at the concession stand during the home football game.
Adams urged everyone to stop by the concession stand and purchase a gift card during all home games.
