Friend: $50 - $99
Tag Day 2020 is Going Virtual!
Join the Campaign: Oct 18-30
Tag Day is the Langley High School band program’s largest fundraiser of the year. In normal years, band and color guard members work in teams to knock on doors of homes in our Great Falls and McLean boundary area, leaving door tags if no one answers. Due to Covid-19 restrictions this year, we are unable to hold in-person fundraisers, so we cannot hold our regular Tag Day event.
Introducing … Virtual Tag Day!
This year more than ever, the success of the Langley Band Program is heavily dependent on parent and community support. Our goal is to raise $30,000 in 2 weeks! If each family gives $100, it will be a big first step towards our goal. In the Tag Day spirit, please reach out to family and friends as well!
To help Langley Bands perform at the elite level we do, we have three primary needs:
Funding for sectionals with professional musicians – this has proven to be the single biggest additional factor for students’ musical development and is more important than ever due to the current virtual learning/playing environment.
Instruments and equipment – to meet the needs of our growing band program, there are key instruments we need to acquire, such as marimbas and a contra-bass clarinet.
Marching band uniforms – the success of the program means we need to outfit more Marching Saxons in the future!
All donations will be listed on the Langley Bands website, as well as in concert programs this year (if we have any) AND in next year’s programs!
Donations are tax-deductible. The preferred method of payment is via PayPal, but you may also mail a check to Langley High School Band Association, PO Box 7741, McLean, VA 22101. If mailing a check, please email Mary Kunkemueller at firstname.lastname@example.org so we know your pledge is coming by mail and we can track it in our goals.
To add incentive to this Virtual Tag Day campaign, there will be a friendly Battle of the Bands competition! Band classes vary in size, so the class with the highest percentage participation wins. We strive for 100% participation and only you can make that happen! The suggested amount is $100, although any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated and will count toward participation (all donations-to-date count towards the participation goal).
We'll keep you posted on which Band is in the lead before announcing the winner via email in early November. Students in the winning band will receive a swag bag!
Donate now and let's see who will be crowned winner of this year's Battle of the Bands. Regardless of which band wins, all band students will benefit! Each dollar goes towards supporting your student’s unique Langley Band experience.
Your generosity will help Langley Band students for many years to come!
