Sponsor Cavalcade: Give GOLD DUST a Chance to Shine
The Charlottesville High School Marching Band is ready to take on a series of statewide competitions with this year’s spaghetti-Western show, GOLD DUST.
With almost 100 members, plus various coaches and chaperones, this means shoes, t-shirts, instruments, uniforms, food, supplies, and endless practice and volunteer hours, all coming together to represent Charlottesville. It is a massive effort.
Over 1000 kids and dozens of bands and hundreds of friends and community members from throughout the region will descend upon CHS for Cavalcade. The entertainment delights all ages.
This marching band competition takes a lot of resources to produce - but it also gives us a chance to build excitement and showcase our talented kids who have worked so hard.
Sponsoring the band now not only makes this season possible for our team but gets your name in front of people who appreciate your support and view you as a caring, vital member of the community.
