The EVBA exists to support all the students involved in Eastern Regional High School’s Marching Band, Drumline, and Colorguard. Often, that support is in the form of hands-on help to carry gear, setup equipment, repair uniforms, etc. However, the lion’s share of our support is financial.
The EVBA subsidizes the band’s annual school-board funded budget to:
• Purchase instruments
• Procure equipment and props.
• Offset the cost of uniforms.
• Provide snacks for our performers at football games and competitions.
• Supply meals before football games and during camps at a minimum cost to parents and caregivers.
• Maintain uniforms.
• Award seniors with scholarship money.
• Offer other assistance as the needs arise.
To that end, we need your help! The following fundraisers are opportunities for you to help support our Marching Vikings!
Become a member! This is a simple process. Complete this form here and return it with a check for $20. Becoming a member not only helps raise funds for The Band, it also will give you access to private, member-only information (photographs and videos of the band performances, access to meeting minutes, the ability to become an EVBA officer, to vote for officers, and more).
Find or become a sponsor. We have several levels of sponsorship available. Please refer to this document sponsorship-letter for more information.
Assist with and attend our home shows. Eastern will be hosting 2 major shows this year. The first will be during the outdoor season (the TOB South Jersey Regional Championships on 10/22/17) and the second during the indoor season (date to be determined). For both shows, we will need hands-on volunteers but the purpose of the events are to raise funds, so we will also need:
• Candy and small items to sell as grams.
• Food and water donations.
• People to attend – ticket sales!
• Sponsorships: we will be offering special sponsorship opportunities.
Purchase spirit wear and other custom items. We have some old spirit wear inventory listed for sale on our site (see the “Shop” button above). And for a broader selection of items, check out our Cafe Press page: EVBA Boosters’ Cafe Press Store.
Take part in our Designer Bag Bingo. This event promises to be a lot of fun and a great opportunity to generate revenue for the EVBA. Details will be coming soon.
If you have any questions about the above, would like to be part of the Fundraising Committee, or have an idea for a new revenue generator, please use the “Contact Us” page to let us know. We’d love to hear from you.
