After more than 20 years, the Stevenson High School marching band is ready for a new look.
But the conversion will come at a cost. The SHS Band Parents Organization is running a drive to help cover the cost of 400 new uniforms. Each uniform costs $350, according to its website. The price includes “uniform design, label, pants, jacket and shako (hat),” according to the site.
The organization is asking businesses, organizations and individuals to donate money toward the effort. Those who contribute $350 will have their name sewn on a label inside a uniform jacket. Donations of lesser amounts are also welcome.
For more information or to donate, visit the band's fundraising page.
The Stevenson High School marching band performed (in casual, summer attire) in the Buffalo Grove Days parade. See the musicians in action at Stevenson Marching Band Performs in Parade.
