Why are the Geneva Music Boosters raising money for new band uniforms instead of the District paying for them outright?
Seventeen years ago, the Geneva Music Boosters successfully raised enough funds throughout the community to cover 50 percent of the cost of new band uniforms. When the topic of replacing the 17-year-old uniforms was raised last fall, the Music Boosters offered once again to help offset some of the cost to the District by fundraising. In the past, the Music Boosters supported the Geneva Theatre Boosters in a similar effort to raise money to help defray some of the cost of new auditorium seating at Geneva High School.
Bids for the band uniforms have been received and the Geneva Music Boosters are in the final throws of their efforts to raise the $56.5K needed to cover half of the uniforms. The goal is to have the new band uniforms for the 2015-2016 school year.
