Kick in KMS 

On March 31, 2016 we will be returning to compete at the North American Brass Band Championships! After our happy results in the last two years (2nd Section Champions in 2014, 1st Section win in 2015) we are working hard preparing for a very challenging field of bands (10!) in 1st Section at this year’s contest.

We are raising funds to pay for our bus transportation…every little bit helps!

Support the band by donating kilometres through our Kilometre Kick-in Campaign! $5 per kilometre – The round trip is 1260km…$5 a kilometre will start us on the road to NABBA (and back!).

All donations receive an immediate tax creditable receipt via CanadaHelps and are greatly appreciated!

Goal: Travelling to the contest is a very costly endeavour. Although the band is covering entry fees and our members are covering their accommodations, our biggest expense is chartering a bus to travel to the competition. Our goal is to raise $6000 in the next few weeks!

Along with the band’s entry, we are very proud to enter 5 soloists from our group and a Tuba Quartet in Friday April 1 Solo and Ensemble competitions!

The Weston Silver Band is a registered charitable organization No. 87119 2308 RR0001

Final Total $10, 005.00 !

Thank you to the following donors who have KICKED IN and put us over the top!
