Panthers Stadium Events - Earn Charms points while raising funds for the Band!
Working the Concession Stands for the Panthers (Bank of America Stadium) raises a lot of money for the Band. There are upcoming events this Spring! Please consider helping in this area if you are able.
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.
