Paschal High School Band Annual March-A-Thon
Fort Worth, Texas – Fort Worth ISD’s R. L. Paschal High School Panther Band is holding its 4th annual March-A-Thon Saturday, September 15th, 2012, starting at the Paschal Band hall at Forest Park Blvd and Berry Street at 9:00am. The March-A-Thon will follow its traditional 10-kilometer route through southwest Fort Worth in and around Paschal High School.
After completing the marching route, the band will perform a short concert at the Tom Thumb store at the corner of Hulen and Bellaire beginning around 12:00 p.m. There will be mini-concerts during rest breaks at Bluebonnet Circle and Foster Park.
Joining the march this year will be FWISD School Board Trustees J. R. Martinez and Dr. Ann Sutherland.
The March-A-Thon is the most anticipated fundraiser the band does each year. The money the band earns allows the band as a whole to participate in many marching competitions each fall. In addition, the funds go to defray the costs – one of the lowest in the area – each band member faces in order to compete for UIL All-District, All-Region and All-Area bands. If an individual or business would like to make a pledge, please email Kal Silverberg at email@example.com for more information. All pledges and donations are tax deductible.
The Panther Band would like to recognize the following sponsors of their 4th Annual March-A-Thon: Tom Thumb, Kroger, Frost Bank, Texaco Tanglewood Service Center, Dennehy Architects, Children’s Dentistry of Fort Worth, Staples, Great Clips, and Teak Tree Capital.
