Band Information


The ABBA fundraising team is excited to release our BIGGEST fundraiser ever:  the Magical Disney Vacation Raffle. Since this is our first and biggest raffle of the year, these proceeds will directly work toward offsetting the expense of our annual marching band trip and so much more. 

This raffle will run the entire football season and anyone in the United States can win the trip!   

To make a donation to the bands, you may send via PayPal here. Thank you for your support!

Dear friend of the Avonworth Marching Band,                        
Your support means the world to our students, parents, and band directors. As you know the past pandemic year has hurt the fundraising efforts of booster clubs every- where. We were unable to hold our normal fundraising activities such as concession stands, our annual craft show, and so many other ways in which we raise dollars.
