The SPIRIT of Great Oak
Developing the Human Spirit through Performance
Thank you to all of community sponsors!
2016-2017 Academic Year
Dear Spirit Band, Color Guard, & Drum Line Supporters,
The Spirit of Great Oak Band, Color Guard, and Drum Line, under the Direction of Mr. Burdick-Rutz, at Great Oak High School in Temecula, California have experienced incredible success over the last 12 years. The program has been distinguished with many awards and accolades. In addition to performances at Great Oak High School varsity football games, this past year we’ve performed at the Temecula Electric Light Parade, Disney’s California Adventure Parade, and La Grande Parade de Paris on New Year’s Day in Paris, France.
Great Oak’s Band, Color Guard, and Drum Line programs have been so successful, that this year we have experienced a significant increase in student participation. Unfortunately, some of the funding sources we’ve counted on in the past have had to cut back on their sponsorships this year. This perfect storm of a greater number of participating young people and less funding has placed us in desperate need of the support of caring and outstanding business leaders like you.
We need your help to maintain the success of our program and nurture the young community and business leaders of tomorrow. Rest assured that 100% of your donation will go directly to support our Band, Color Guard, and Drum line programs. Your donation is tax deductible and any amount you can provide will be put to good use.
Donations will help the Band Director procure music, instruments, uniforms, coaching, competitions, transportation, and much needed instrument repairs. When you make a donation to our sponsorship program we will display your company’s name in our brochures, tour t-shirts, on our booster website, and on our public Facebook page respectively.
