  • A note from Lauren Grace Gurganus about our PINK PLUME PROJECT

Hi Spain Park Band family! 

My name is Lauren Grace Gurganus and I’m a senior this year. I’m also one of the flute section leaders. Last year I organized a fundraiser to pay for pink plumes for the band to wear during October to raise awareness for breast cancer, and we raised just enough to cover the cost of the plumes. This year we are continuing that fundraiser, except this time 100% of the money raised will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. We will be raising money all throughout October and it can be made in the form of cash or check. We would love for everyone to participate so we can make a big donation at the end of the fundraiser. Thank you so much! 

DONATE by cash, check or MSF under Student Fees>>>Fundraisers>>>Pink Plume Project
