Next Saturday, August 11, from 6 a.m. to midnight, percussion members of the McKinney Boyd Bronco Band will make music as part of their annual teambuilding and fundraising event known as the Drum-a-Thon.
The public is invited to enjoy the sounds of marimbas, tenors, bass drums, snares, cymbals and more, as percussion members play for 18 straight hours at McKinney Boyd High School. The campus is located at 600 N. Lake Forest Drive, McKinney, TX 75071.
Don’t miss this exciting event for a very worthy cause! No admission is required, but donations are welcome and encouraged! Pledges will be taken, and any patron who donates $100 or more will be listed on this year’s drumline shirt, which not only will be worn by our percussionists, but also by friends of the band and McKinney Boyd High School students.
A Drum-a-Thon kick-off event will be held on Friday, August 10 from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. on the Square in downtown McKinney. Donations will be taken at this venue as well. Please contact Derek Stoughton for more information regarding this event.
