BENEFITING: BLUECOATS DRUM AND BUGLE CORPS
Our YAMAHA ATV’s have come to be an important part of our fleet. They make it possible for us to efficiently move our front ensemble and electronic equipment from field to field during rehearsal, and from our equipment truck to the stadium (and back) for every performance. In mid-March of this year, our 2007 and 2008 model year YAMAHA ATV’s were stolen from our property in North Canton, Ohio along with the trailer that they are transported on. They were covered, and the tongue of the trailer was locked. In addition, they were hidden behind a bank of trees so that they were not easily visible from the road. However, perpetrators entered our property, pulled up to the trailer, cut the lock off, and rolled away with the vehicles. They were insured, but the insurance company is only able to offer us $3000 due to the age and value of the vehicles and trailer. Fortunately, our amazing partners at YAMAHA are able to offer us a great price on new and better ATVs. Two new ones, plus a new trailer will cost us close to $15,000. When you deduct the $3000 insurance payment, our total cost as a result of this theft will be $12,000. Because this is such a large and unexpected expenditure, we are asking for your generosity in assisting us with replacing these much needed vehicles and their trailer. A $50 or $100 donation today will go a long way in helping us reach this goal, and your gift will be put to great use as these vehicles will likely last us another 10 years! Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!
