Fundraising is one of the most challenging and important activities to which your student will be asked to contribute as a member of the Ledford Panther Regiment. The bulk of our efforts are supported by parents and the fundraising efforts of the Band Boosters organization. Expenses for instruments, marching band uniform upkeep, purchase of new uniforms, music, transporting equipment, and travel—none of which are covered by our allocated school budget—present a tremendous challenge. With the help of our students & parents, we fundraise in many ways. Please consider supporting the Band Boosters by making a meaningful difference for so many deserving students.

With certain fundraising opportunities, we offer our students a way they can offset a large portion or even all of their band fees.  Each fundraiser is different, so be sure to see below which fundraisers give back to the general booster's fund and which ones give back to the student's account.  This year being a tough year our fundraiser's have changed quite a bit.

(All monies raised from the meal will go into the LPR bank account. Any auction items sold by your band student will go into their band account).
