Help Send the Bellevue High School Band to Disney World
The Bellevue High School Band of Gold has the opportunity to perform on the Downtown Disney stage and spend one week in Orlando.
But they need some help.
The band is made up of 45 members and according to a fundraising page, the students represent some of the highest achieving and some of the "neediest" in terms of their socioeconomic backgrounds. Many members have never been beyond a 25-mile radius of Bellevue, the fundraising page notes.
The total cost of the trip is $30,000 and there are just over 100 days for the community to help the band raise the needed funds. The trip is scheduled for April 2015.
"This trip to Disney represents a childhood trip of a lifetime they might never otherwise get to experience," noted Lisa Berkemeier, Band Boosters president. "It is our hope that through this site, those who share a passion to support young musicians as they attempt to spread the power of music and reach new levels of educational and worldly experiences, support this cause."
