BAND E-NEWS (March 5-11)

Hello Mighty Hawk Band!

We hope everyone is doing well. We had a great week of rehearsals this week with invited clinicians, Mrs. Mary Brown and Dr. Doug Stotter. We’re looking forward to bringing out more great educators to share their knowledge with our students.


Looking ahead to this year’s Jazz Dinner Auction on April 8th at the Hurst Conference Center, we are asking you to support our cause through a donation to our auction. Your donation will certainly be much appreciated and will make a lasting difference in the lives of our 218 young musicians in the Birdville Mighty Hawk band program. Some of you have access to time shares, airline miles, and tickets to events. Any goods and services would really help us to raise money for the program. No donation is too small and will be enthusiastically accepted.

In return for your donation, we would like to offer you and/or your company the following promotional consideration:

Recognition in the dinner program

Recognition on auction signage

Recognition on the Mighty Hawk Band website

Recognition on all Mighty Hawk social media venues

Thank you very much for your consideration. Please feel free to contact Danielle Russell-Manning at (480) 432-5694 or danielle.russell-manning@aa.com should you be able to donate.
