Bring in this flyer, show it on your smartphone or tell the cashier you’re supporting the cause to make sure that 33% of the proceeds will be donated to McNeil High School Marching Band.


BOA Austin, Saturday September 28th is one of our largest fundraising events of the year! Every family should plan to volunteer on this weekend. It promises to be a great show as it draws many of the strongest bands in Texas and is a wonderful opportunity for our band. Watch for volunteer signups coming soon!
