LCPAA Fundraiser Kickoff

What makes band, show choir, winter guard, theater, and other arts events work? Lots of hard work, blood sweat and tears, and of course, money.

With your efforts and participation, these events will be successful this year too!

Upcoming events include:

  • Mums & Trash Bags
  • Scrip
  • The Gala
  • Color Fund Run
  • More!
