Help a Local Band Get to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade


The Plymouth Canton Educational Park Marching band is one of Michigan’s finest and they need your help. The band has been received the prestigious honor of being selected to travel to New York City to participate in the 2011 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. According to parade organizers this is likely the first time a band from Michigan will participate in the event as they have no records to say otherwise.

As you can imagine, there is a significant cost associated with transporting a couple hundred kids and equipment. While the number of worthy causes will always exceed an individual’s ability to give, the good news here is that Pepsi is willing to front the cash and all you have to do is vote. How much does the band stand to gain? $25,000.

Are you willing to take a few seconds out of your day to help give a group of high schoolers the unbelievable experience of representing their state on a national stage? If so, click the link below and submit your vote!

I’d like to also use this post to remind SLR readers of the “Lions Heart” tab near the top of the page. My intention has been to use this area to link readers with a heart for giving with some causes that might in some way deal with the relevant topics of this site.
