The Basha Band Boosters of Chandler, AZ are THRILLED to launch the Living Tree Fundraising Campaign for the 2019/20 school year!
The Basha Bands Program is the largest band program in the CUSD participating in competitions and performances at over 40 shows and events annually throughout Arizona and the Southwest. Evan Quintus, our Basha Bands Program Director, has identified the need to purchase a new truck/trailer with custom wrap to safely and reliably transport all of the bands’ musical equipment and props for each of these events and competitions. The current trucks have many years of service including wear and tear from over 500,000 miles of use. In addition, funds raised will be used to supplement many other aspects of the program, such as meals, props, and the purchase and repair of musical equipment.
We are inviting our Basha Band families, friends, and the community to join in our efforts to raise funds to support this much needed purchase through the Living Tree online fundraising campaign. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and we look forward to your continued involvement and support of the Basha Bands Boosters.
We wish to share with you that just shortly after the fundraiser began; we were invited to view an older 48’ moving truck/trailer from a local company here in Phoenix. This was amazingly fortunate as we had been scouring the country for months to find a truck/trailer that fit our requirements and one that did not have an expensive shipping charge to get it to Arizona. Upon investigating it further and getting approval from our Band Director and Administration, we concluded this was the truck for us and recently made the purchase. It definitely needs work though! This is again, why we need you and need to continue to try and hit our fundraiser goal!
New brakes, new ramp, new lighting, covering the moving company logos and replacing all eight tires costs money! Once that’s done it will be a solid trailer and will serve the Basha Band Program well for years to come. Please help us give our hard working, talented band students the entire package!
