“PRIDE OF VIENNA” MARCHING TO A DOOR NEAR YOU
James Madison High School Band Boosters Announce Tag Day Sept. 9
More than 150 uniformed James Madison High School Band and Color Guard members will knock on 10,000 doors through Vienna and Oakton to thank residents for their support and solicit donations for the Band Boosters during its annual Tag Day fundraiser, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, September 9, 2017.
TAG Day proceeds support the James Madison High School Band Program. Competition performances have earned the JMHS Band a reputation of excellence, and it is one of only a few Bands to hold two prestigious Sudler Flags of Honor (an international award from the John Philip Sousa Foundation). The Band plans to compete at four events this fall.
“The support of our community is very encouraging,” said Wai Oo, Drum Major “Not only do we represent James Madison High School when we perform, but we represent the Vienna and Oakton communities whose support and generosity we greatly appreciate
TAG Day is the first of three annual Band Boosters fundraisers. It will be followed by the Annual Turkey Trot 5K, 10k, and Fun Run on Sunday, November 19th, and the Tiny Tots concert November 30 and December 1. Both events have become beloved community traditions.
Cash or checks (made out to JMHS Band Parents) will be gratefully accepted. If the band students do not make it to your street and you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, you may mail one to James Madison High School, ATTN: Band Parents - TAG DAY
(2500 James Madison Drive, Vienna VA 22181) or visit the band's website at www.jmhsband.org.
This event is sponsored by the JMHS Band Parents Organization and is operated independently of the Fairfax County School Board, the Superintendent, and James Madison High School.
