A Message from the RRHS Band Boosters

Dear Friend of the Rio Rico HS Band,

Re: Donations to / Sponsorships of the Rio Rico High School Band & Band Boosters

The Rio Rico Band Program is constantly seeking to improve facilities for our student musicians. This year, our goal is to purchase music and revamp our library. This will cost upwards of $5000. Please help us reach our goal by donating to our program. Checks can be made out to: “Rio Rico High School Band Boosters.” We are also looking for donations for food and items to raffle off at our upcoming “Evening with the Rio Rico Big Bands” fundraiser, to which you are invited. We would be more than happy to provide you with a complimentary ticket if you would be willing to donate to our program, with food, item, or a financial contribution!

The Rio Rico band program is one of the fastest growing and most respected organizations in the Rio Rico community. Currently there are about 85 students in the high school band program, and we anticipate increasing our numbers by approximately 10 students each year. The Rio Rico Marching Hawks perform in the Green Valley White Elephant Parade and the Nogales Veterans Day Parade each year. They also perform in three statewide festivals and consistently earn top ratings. In addition, the band performs at all home varsity football games, both in the stands and at halftime. The Rio Rico High School Band is quickly becoming one of the most respected bands in Arizona. The Rio Rico High School Symphonic, Concert, and Jazz Bands each perform at regional and state festivals as well, and play four concerts at RRHS during the school year. We would be happy to thank your business for its donation or sponsorship in our concert programs, which are read by parents and community members.

The Rio Rico High School Band Boosters is an incorporated organization of parents that supports the band students. The Boosters does everything from fundraising to chaperoning to handing out water at events. The RRHS Band Boosters is a non-profit organization, and donations to the Boosters are tax deductible. Our Tax ID # is 83-0428697.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. If you have, any questions please feel free to contact me at anytime.

Sincerely,

Rio Rico High School Band Boosters
