The Stephen Decatur Music Boosters is holding a raffle drawing on May 3 to raise money for new band uniforms. The raffle prizes consist of a one-of-a-kind acoustic-electric guitar, handcrafted by Stephen Decatur Music Boosters board member Robbie Kilchenstein. A guitar case and seven guitar lessons will also be raffled. The cost of the tickets is $20 for one ticket and $100 for six tickets. Many fundraisers have previously been held with the hopes of replacing the ensemble’s nearly 30-year old uniforms.

Boosters group president  Stacy Paulsen stated, “We’re holding things together with safety pins.” Paulsen also stated that the last time the marching band uniforms were purchased was in 1991.

For the past eight years, the boosters group has been trying to raise money for new uniforms, and its fundraising goal is $100,000. The band needs wool uniforms since the students mostly perform outdoors.

About $86,000 has already been raised by the boosters group, in order for the band members to continue performing with a presentable appearance.

Band Director JD Foell stated, “We are Decatur Strong and want to exude that confidence not only in our playing but in our appearance as well.”
