We are very pleased to announce that local resident and accomplished radio personality and author of All My Angels Wear Fur, Devon O’Day has agreed to serve as the emcee for this important fundraiser for the Harpeth Band of Blue. All funds collected will help with the nearly $100,000 that must be raised through volunteer efforts for the band’s 2010/2011 school year activities. Each year, the Harpeth Band of Blue Booster Club works hard to defray the costs associated with all aspects of the band – marching, concert, drumline and color guard. This award winning competitive band program (4th at WGI in 2010) needs the full support of our community for this and other fundraisers throughout the year.
