Kicks 101.5

I would like to thank Darius Rucker and the morning show at Kicks 101.5 for their generous donation to the Spirit of South Paulding High School Band.  They donated a guitar for us to raffle off in an effort to help us raise money.  The drawing will be held at the Battle of the Bands, which is scheduled for April 1.  Raffle tickets for the guitar are $2.00.  Our goal is to raise at least $4000.00 by raffling the guitar.  Our booster club president, Mr. William Thomas, has agreed to shave his head into a "mohawk," allow the kids to dye it a color of their choice, and wear it to a booster meeting if we reach this goal.  If you do not know who Darius Rucker is, think of Hootie and the Blowfish.  He is a fabulous musician.  We are very fortunate to be the recipient of his generosity.  Tickets are on sale now.  See me to purchase tickets or to check out tickets to sell.  Mr. Rucker and Kicks 101.5 - YOU ROCK! Thank you!

Other items will also be raffled off at the Battle of the Bands.  I learned this evening that a band parent has donated 4 tickets to an Atlanta Hawks game!  If you have a connection or are willing to donate an item to be raffled, please let us know.  The raffle has the potential to help our attendance to the Battle of the Bands, which in turn helps us raise money for the band and the Gates Nichols Memorial Scholarship.  I appreciate all of your support and am excited about the potential this event has in impacting the future of our students.  Thank you for doing what you can.
