We LOVE our sponsors!! Thanks to their generosity, the Boosters are able to provide for these awARd winning bands. Their financial support provides funding for new equipment, financial aid for band fees/expenses, and additional support staff/clinicians to help our students be the best they can be. Please support our sponsors by using their services when possible and be sure to THANK them for supporting the ARHS Bands.
Why support us?
Approximately 150 young performers of the ARHS Bands and Color Guards strive all year long to be exemplary in the classroom, on the marching field and in the community. The various ensembles perform throughout the year and require significant resources to support the countless hours of practice and preparation by each member.
The ARHS Band operating budget totals more than $100,000 to cover the cost of instruments, music, uniforms, specialized instructors, transportation, and more. Dorchester District 2 only covers a small portion of these costs. The remainder is covered by individual students, contributions, fundraising, and generous donations by sponsors like YOU!
