Lincoln-Way Marching Band Invitational Info
The big week is finally here! We are excited to partner with Music for All and serve as a Bands of America Affiliate Regional Competition! We have a full day of great bands and great music on tap at LW West!
Volunteer sign ups are posted on Charms. We need an immense amount of volunteers to make the invitational a huge success. As a reminder - volunteering at the LWMI fulfills your major volunteer requirement for the year.
There are still spots that we need to fill. If you have not signed up yet, please do so ASAP. If you have already signed up and would like to pull a double shift, we would greatly appreciate it. A complimentary meal will be provided for all volunteers who work the entire day.

Our goal is to raise $30,000 through Snap Raise and we can reach that goal if everyone enters 20 email addresses and includes a photo of themselves. Remember - the emails are sent to people you know (family members, friends, etc.) and when they see a photo of you in your band uniform, they are more likely to make a donation.
It is not too late to enter in your emails!
