Oxnard High School Marching Band Provides Community with Good, Clean Fun by Hosting Car Wash
The Oxnard High School Marching Band & Auxiliary is sponsoring its “Spring Trip to Disneyland” car wash fundraiser event this Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 9-3 at Oxnard High School parking lot, located at 3400 W. Gonzalez Road in Oxnard. All proceeds from this event will benefit the band and auxiliary to offset the costs for the student’s spring trip to the “Happiest Place on Earth”.
The cost is $7.00 for ANY vehicle and you can purchase tickets from your favorite band student or drive right on in! 100% of all funds raised will go to the students in order to pay their expenses to travel to Disneyland.
“This will be the band’s first spring trip in 4 years. In better times, our band was known as “The World Traveling Yellow Jackets Marching Band”. The band has traveled extensively in past years to Hawaii, Mexico, Canada and beyond. Due to ongoing budget cuts to music education, we have had to cancel spring trip since 2011. These students have been working harder than ever to sell car wash tickets for this trip. This car wash fundraiser is the last opportunity for these kids to raise funds to pay for their trip. Although the students plan on a lot of leisure time, the band will be performing at California Adventure and will participate in the Disney Soundtrack Session. Students will learn what it is like to work as a performer in the recording studio.”
This will be the band’s last major fundraising opportunity for the 2013-2014 marching band season! Educators, friends, family, band boosters, band alumni – please come out and support your Oxnard High School Marching Yellow Jackets and help them get to Disneyland!
