PLANO WEST SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL MARCHING BAND TO HOLD MARCHATHON FUNDRAISER THROUGH DEERFIELD NEIGHBORHOOD AND MINI-CONCERT AT HAUN ELEMENTARY
Plano, Texas – September 20, 2018 – The Plano West Senior High Mighty Wolf Marching Band will march down the streets of Plano’s Deerfield Neighborhood in a 4-mile musical parade on Saturday, September 29, from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. The annual event, named the Wolfpack Prowl, is the largest fundraiser for the Plano West Band with proceeds being used to support the band and its activities throughout the 2018-19 school year. This year, the parade will begin at Jasper High School, 6800 Archgate Drive, heading north across Legacy into the Deerfield neighborhood (75024). During the Prowl, the band will stop by individual homes to play song requests for a set donation. At roughly the halfway point (11:30 am), the band will perform a 30-minute mini-concert in the parking lot of Haun Elementary, 4500 Quincy Lane, so neighbors, parents and friends from the area can join the festivities. Each band member solicits corporate and/or individual sponsors for the Prowl and everyone has a great time at this spirited event.
“We hope neighbors, families and friends will come outside of their homes to watch the parade and gather at Haun Elementary for our mini-concert,” added Jackie Digby, band director, Plano West. “Families may also request special songs from our list as we march through the neighborhood, at Haun Elementary, or in advance through our website. One of our most popular requests each year is the ‘Happy Birthday’ song. It certainly makes for a memorable occasion to have 160 instruments playing that tune on your front lawn! If possible, please let us know your requests in advance so we can plan a scheduled stop in front of your home.”
Flyers with a complete song list have been distributed in the neighborhood. For more information on how to become a sponsor or request a song, visit https://planowestband.membershiptoolkit.com/wolfprowl.
“We thank you for your support of this important and entertaining fundraiser for our band,” added Digby.
