    It is with great pride that I inform you of the GCHS Marching Warriors Bandís invitation to perform in the 2016 NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Parade on August 6th in Canton, Ohio. Our students will have the opportunity to perform for an audience of over 200,000 spectators celebrating the induction of Granite City High School Alumnus, Kevin Greene, into the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    We are very excited to have received this honor, and we are pleased that our studentsí efforts and determination are being recognized. Unfortunately, this opportunity has come at a time when our students will not have the chance to fundraise enough money to cover the cost of the trip. The total cost of the trip for our 165 member GCHS Marching Warriors Varsity Band will be roughly $50,000, including transportation, hotel, and food.

    We are asking you to help make this dream come true. We want all of our students to share in this once in a lifetime experience, and it will only be possible through your help. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the GCHS Band today. You, through your generosity, can help students realize their goal of representing Granite City High School and our community at the 2016 NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Parade.

    Thank you for your consideration and support of this request.
