In a partnership between The Claudia Taylor Johnson Band Parents Association and The Bands of Claudia Taylor Johnson Foundation, we are excited to announce the first annual CTJ Band March-a-thon, scheduled for Saturday, August 13th, 2022. On the morning of the 13th, the band will march through the Cibolo Canyons and Bulverde Village neighborhoods, performing short concerts at homes along the way and ending at the Cibolo Canyons Amenity Center. We will follow up the March-a-thon with a party at Johnson High School on the band lot to celebrate our high achievers for the event.
The band staff and our two support organizations have been working through the spring to prepare for this unique event to raise monies for the band program. We have spent time working with the Leander ISD Bands, who have raised between $80,000 - $100,000 a year through this unique fundraiser to learn about their process, and are confident our community can make this event a success. We have set a goal of $50,000 for our band to raise this year to go towards the costs of new woodwind and brass instruments, a new set of batterie percussion, and upgrades to our sound system. Should the band hit its $50,000 target - Mr. Lipman and Mr. Lozano will camp out on the band tower for one night.
On Monday July 25th, we will kick off the event with a party at Johnson High School. On this evening, we’ll divide into four teams led by each band director and work to solicit pledges for the March-a-thon. Our goal is for each band family to initiate contact with ten donors/neighbors/friends who would not typically contribute to our fundraisers. We want to avoid asking only the same parents and family members to donate. We will provide incentives and awards to the band teams who earn the most pledges and donations the night of the event and then continue rewards through the three weeks before the main event. Students can create individual web pages on our online donation platform and receive some fantastic incentives to raise money for the band.
