The Mercer Island Band Program is home to hundreds of students every year, teaching important life skills about community, hard work, and leadership. Uniforms are an integral part of that experience.
For the past 14 years our uniforms have welcomed every 5th grade student onto the field of the Mercer Island High School stadium to play Hot Crossed Buns. They have marched in every home football game, and they have marched with our students to Victoria BC, to London, to Australia, to Seahawks halftime shows, and to Tournament of Roses Parades. As our current uniforms near the end of their useful life we look for new ones to be used by our next generation of band students.
With your help, new band uniforms will be seen by millions of spectators around the world as our students represent MIHS and Washington State at the 97th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
How can you help?
Official marching band uniform fundraising will kick-off in the Fall of 2022, but we are now welcoming Angel Donors to help jumpstart this fundraising campaign.
We are also welcoming contributions of any size from our graduating seniors and their families to the Class of 2022 Legacy Gift, with the goal of the Class of 2022 leaving 22 uniforms to the next generation of band students.
It takes a village to outfit 300 band students and get them 3000 miles across the country. We need your help! Volunteer here
