Hurricanes Harvey and Irma Relief Fund

We just wanted to let everyone know that our thoughts are with the people of Texas and Florida in the wakes of Hurricane Harvey and Irma. The MWPBA will be holding a fund raiser to help support our piping and drumming friends that have been affected. Full details will follow after things settle down. 

In the meantime, we have started a campaign to collect donations on your behalf that will be distributed to bands and related organizations in the areas. Any and all donations of any amount would be greatly appreciated. Distribution will be overseen by the MWPBA Board.

We are seeing tremendous support so far, and thank everybody most sincerely!

Thanks for your help!
