We've met our first goal!

December 07, 2023

Thank you for your support of The Carolina Band and our upcoming trip to the 2024 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC!! We have surpassed the first $100,000 mark and are 16% of the way there. For context, 16% of the way to NYC will get us from Columbia to the SC/NC border on I-95. We still have a long journey ahead, so please share the Crowdfunding page with your friends and family and let's get The Band all the way there!
