The Dayton Band Booster Organization takes a considerable amount of money to assist the band program. While the band department receives a certain amount of money from the school board budget, most of this money is earmarked for certain expenditures which must be paid each year, such as band music and maintenance on instruments. Please be aware though, this budgeted money is most frequently inadequate to cover the expenses for which it is allotted.
We would not have a band program without the money Band Boosters raises. The band must pay for transportation to and from every away game and band competition. Each year Band expenses (at a cost of over $500 for the per student per year) include field & concert music, transportation to all events equipment bus costs, band supplies, Color Guard & Flag supplies, Junior/Senior Clinic costs, fees to enter competitions, fees for summer band camp, instrument purchases, instrument repair, and the annual band banquet. The Band Booster organization assist the band with these expenses. Therefore, fund raising is an important service of the Band Boosters.
Currently we have 2 major fund raising efforts.
1. Concession Stands (Our BIGGEST money maker)
The Band Boosters are responsible for the concession stands at every home football game. Running the stands requires many volunteers. Please sign up to help operate the concession stands at least two times for football games during the season.
2. Coke Sale - Profits made are for each individual student that rasises the funds. The profit they make will go towards their band expenses including uniform cleaning, meals for away games, shoes & garmet bag (if applicable), shirts, field trips, equipment repair, etc. Funds will roll over every year with the student unless the student graduates or moves out of district.
