Emerald Brigade Sousaphone Campaign
Our first four brand new Conn 20K sousaphones arrived on October 8th! There are more on the way. Thank you to the many donors to the EB Sousaphone Campaign and Sousaphonathon for making this possible. You have made our band students, directors, and staff very happy!

Please continue to spread the word about the GoFundMe Emerald Brigade Sousaphone Campaign so we can reach our ultimate goal of $34,000. All 180 marching band students will be so grateful and excited, and the new sousaphones will make a HUGE difference in the look and sound of their show! Any funds over the $34,000 goal will be used to purchase/replace other instruments.

Shop & Give to PHSMB with iGive
If you shop online, go to your online store, find what it is that you would like to buy, and then go to iGive.com. Our PHS Music Booster organization will receive a percentage back from your purchase! iGive is a free service where shopping at any of up to 1,900 stores like Walmart, JC Penney, Sears, Overstock, and many more, will mean a donation to PHSMB.

Enrollment is free - sign up at iGive.com.

Amazon will no longer be on iGive as of August 1, 2016. But - there's good news, too. Most of the almost 1,800 stores offer a much, much bigger donation than the half percent Amazon offered. Walmart's donation is 3X bigger than Amazon's. iGive stores usually offer around 3%, but some go way, way higher. It's so easy to do good with #FREEMONEY for Poway High School Music Boosters.

PLUS, with the iGive Back-to-School Bonus, simply by your inviting friends to try iGive.com, Poway High School Music Boosters can earn extra funds ... at no cost to you or to them.

If you want to see how PHSMB is doing on iGive, please visit the PHSMB iGive Cause Dashboard.

Poway Real Estate Professionals are BIG PHS Music Supporters!

The Poway High School Music Boosters would like to thank the Poway Real Estate Professionals for their generous donation. With the funds donated this year PHSMB is able to buy 2 vital tools in the instrumental music program at Poway High. The first is a Dr. Beat metronome (a device used by the marching band to keep time while learning their drill). It can be heard across an entire football field. The second tool purchased with this donation is Finale, a type of composition software that allows all of the music programs (orchestra, choir, jazz, marching band, musical) at PHS to create, edit and publish music scores used in their performances.

Every year the PUSD music programs must raise hundreds of thousands of dollars that the district does not provide in order for our community's kids to have a first class musical education. If it were not for the generous donations of organizations like Poway Real Estate Professionals, these kids' dreams would be left behind. PHSMB is truly grateful for this generous gift from PREP and all charitable donations that they receive. The parents, students and teachers would like to thank them for their generosity.
