Letter: The Buccaneer Bounty Dinner letter 2015

This is a fun and worthwhile event to raise money to send the KHS Buccaneer Band on our proposed trip to Montana late this spring, in addition to supporting the band throughout the entire year.

We need your support,

With state funding decreasing, we need your help like never before.  We are fighting to keep quality band programs going – to support your teams at sporting events as well as entertaining at festivals, parades and concerts.  We appreciate how much you already do and give, in time, money, and moral support.

As you  can imagine, fundraising is crucial to the band’s success.  An activity such as this allows us to expand the pool of people who contribute, allowing us to expand programs or decrease direct costs per student household.  We are reaching out to the community to help achieve our goals and maintain the musical excellence for which the Kingston High School band is known.

Ways you can help:

  • Recruiting additional volunteers
  • Donate your time by helping with the event
  • Procuring items for the auction
  • Invite neighbors and friends to purchase tickets
  • Donate funds

We need your contribution.  Whether it’s your time, your willingness to donate funds or procure items, to knock on doors and personally invite your neighbors, to help set up and tear down the event.  We need a lot of people to do a little work.  Our success depends on you.  Without it programs and abilities for the band will diminish – some may even go away.  You can help the Kingston High Band continue to be a success.  Thank you in advance for your contribution.

To get involved please contact Cari Trussell at or call/text at 360.440.3986


Everyone please sign up to help out in some capacity.
