The proceeds from this event will directly benefit Newport’s band programs, including all three concert bands, the percussion ensemble, jazz bands and the award-winning Newport Pride Marching Band.
Funds raised at each auction contribute to many enriching experiences for band students. Proceeds from the last auction have already helped pay for software that makes it easier for students to play music together and access sheet music online in this year’s virtual learning environment.
This is our one chance this year to ensure that when students can resume in person schooling, they will continue to benefit from NBPA funded instruments that work, nutritious home-cooked meals before games, quality coaching, educational music retreats, clinics with visiting artists, and financial scholarships that support students in need.
So if it’s within your budget to do so, please join us on April 29 - May 1 for our online auction, and at on May 1 at 7PM for our livestream band gala, or consider making a monetary donation now. Every dollar counts and no amount is too small.
Thank you for your critical support in achieving our goals!
