As I hope you all know by now, Cherokee will be hosting the Tournament of Bands State Championship Competition (hereafter, Home Comp) on Saturday October 30, 2021. This is an exciting opportunity for our band kids to host a competition for the first time in 3 years!!
This is also a great fundraising opportunity for the Band. There is a LOT of work that needs to be done to make this competition run smoothly and so we need All Hands on Deck from ALL our parents, alumni, friends and family!
The most important place for us to start and ASAP is with chairpeople for the various committees. Descriptions of each are included below. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Maryann Correll at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. It's a busy day but it's FUN too and a wonderful opportunity to share this day with our band kids and participate in their excitement as hosts.
ALL band families are needed to make this event a success!
Get your car all shined up and spiffy and support a great community cause at the same time! Head to the Cherokee Bands Car Wash:
>> Saturday, July 31st
>> 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
>> Lauren Oak Garden Center, 199 Tomlinson Mill Rd, Marlton

All proceeds will benefit the Cherokee High School band programs, which have been hit particularly hard this year by state budget cuts and the pandemic related inability to hold fundraising events. Your donation is greatly appreciated!
