Good Morning,


As our fundraising campaign comes to a close, I want to be sure to let you know the impact you have made on PRIDE. Your support and contribution shows our students that the community loves and supports them and their amazing talent. 


We had a total of 28 donors and raised $6,165! Thanks to you, we are that much closer to supporting the needs of our rapidly growing band!


Please stay in touch for more ways you can stay involved and continue to support the PRIDE. Thank you for all you have done for these amazing students and Go Aggies! ♫♪♫♪


Thanks again!

Good Afternoon!


I hope you had a great break! Now that we are back on campus writing music and getting ready for another great year, I want to take time to thank you for all your support. We couldn't have gotten this far without you.


Today marks just 7 days left for our campaign so that means, now more than ever, we need your help!


Please share with with your friends, family, and fellow Aggies as we enter the last few days to reach our goal. We are at 61% and we can't get to the full amount without you!

Thanks again!

We are so grateful for you!

Because of you, we have raised $4,555 and 19 donors have come together to make a difference for our students so far. We aren't finished though, we are about 45% of the way toward our goal and we need your help!!!! Please share the following link:

You can make an additional impact by helping us invite others who marched with YOU in the PRIDE to show their support and make their own contribution to help student musicians in the band. Your donations help us pay for game day meals, music supplies and equipment as we continue the tradition of being "THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS MARCHING BAND..."

Thank you,

Steven Smyth
