Jeff Garcia's Fundraiser:

Help me march DCI this summer!

This summer, I intend on spending the summer with the Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corps, from Fort Mill, South Carolina. This is somewhat of a marching band with brass, percussion, and color guard that tours parts of the U.S.A. for two and a half months. Carolina Crown is one of the most prestigious drum and bugle corps in the Drum Corps International circuit. For the past several years, they have been in the top 12 corps at the Drum Corps International World Championships. Further, in 2009, Carolina Crown won the Jim Ott award for the best brass section in Drum Corps International. Although this is a very rewarding and educational experience, it is also very costly. Touring with this drum and bugle corps costs upwards of $3,000, which doesn’t include traveling to audition camps, camp fees, or auditioning fees.
I would love more than anything to march for at least one summer. The experiences I would gain here would be unmatched to anything else. One of my goals for my future is to have a job teaching a brass section in a drum and bugle corps, and going on tour this summer would get me one step closer to that goal. My only problem is that I am struggling to come up with these funds. I have applied everywhere I can possibly think of, although I cannot fit any of them into my busy schedule. Honors brass quintet rehearsals, symphonic band rehearsals, and normal schoolwork has taken up a large majority of my time. If this organization could help sponsor me in any capacity, I would be forever grateful.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments!
