CHS Band Boosters

We're a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization of volunteers. We have a governing board but rely on parents to fuel the work. We raise money and host events to support band students and help cover program costs throughout the year.

 

Our goal: To make sure that practical and logistical challenges don't prevent the band from achieving its best and having fun while doing so.
