Panthers Stadium and Spectrum Center Events - Earn Charms points while raising funds for the Band!
Working the Concession Stands for the Panthers (Bank of America Stadium) and Hornets (Spectrum Center) raises a lot of money for the Band. Please consider helping in this area if you are able! Several upcoming events are full, but there will be more events in the future.
You will receive 25 Charms points for every game worked for your student, and a 25 Charms points bonus after every 4th game. Charms points convert to money you can use to pay fees, and points never expire! Use them for Winter Guard, Winter Percussion, Winter Winds, Spring Trip, etc! Use them for next year’s fees as well.

Band Fees and Charms Info
Charms is a website that the band uses to post fees and keep track of Charms Points. Charms Points may be earned through various fundraisers (Panthers, Sam’s Cards, etc.) that can be used to pay for band fees. Rising 9th and 10th grade students will also see an Accessory Fee for show shoes and section specific items (gloves, mallets, etc.)

Go to the Charms website (https://www.charmsoffice.com/).
Click Login in the upper right corner.

Click "Enter Charms"
The "Initial Student Area Password" is the first three letters of the first name and the first three letters of the last name. Example: John Smith's Student Area Password would be JohSmi. The capital letters are required.
