MILTON, Ga. — The Cambridge High School Marching Band will hold their "Share the Dream" golf tournament at The Manor Golf and Country Club on May 12.
The money raised will be used to help pay for the band's upcoming trip to London for the 2014-2015 London New Year's Day Parade.
"It is a tremendous honor to receive the invitation, especially considering we are such a new school. I believe anything that positively promotes our commitment to the performing arts at Cambridge is a very important opportunity," said Ryan Borger, director of bands at Cambridge.
One of the band's fundraising goals is to involve the Milton and Alpharetta business community in their plans for fundraising for the trip.
The golf tournament will provide local businesses with the opportunity to support the school through a variety of sponsorship levels.
"We are fortunate to live in such a supportive community. It means a great deal to our band families at Cambridge to see our local community support the schools," Borger said.
In addition to the "Share the Dream" golf tournament, the band plans student led coupon sales and car washes fundraisers.
The band students at Cambridge have raised $10,000 for their trip from previous fundraisers.
"We have a few major fundraising plans, but the golf tournament is the jumpstart to our efforts. A great start on this event in May will make all our future plans much more attainable," Borger said.
Registration for the "Share the Dream" Golf Tournament will begin at 8 a.m. on May 12.
