As many of you know, the vocal soloist from Castle High School in Newburgh, IN, Sophie Rinehart, was killed in a car accident Saturday night along with father and grandmother. Her sister, Josie, survived the accident.
The fan club for the Castle Marching Knights has requested that local bands who want to honor her memory and comfort her fellow marchers take pictures with #weareallcastle signs or dressed in royal blue.
Our students should sign our poster today or tomorrow in your concert band class or guard class and report in your Pride to Pasadena shirt in front of the MPLT trailer at your school (there is one at LN, one at LC) right after school tomorrow (Wednesday 16th) for a photo to add to our poster and send to the Castle Marching Knights. If you attend Belzer or FCV, you can go to either high school after school tomorrow to be part of the picture and sign the poster.
Our November 17th at Dine to Donate at Chile Verde on Shadeland Ave was originally intended as a Pride to Pasadena fundraiser, but we will now divert those proceeds support the family of Sophie Rinehart.
If you wish to show support on your own, here are additional options:
If you wish to support Sophie’s family through a financial gift in their time of need, a fund has been set up to help them with their final expenses. You may donate this way by making checks payable to the “David Gary Rinehart Fund” and mailing it to 2411 Sarasota Drive, Evansville, IN 47715.
If you wish to send cards, notes or other condolences to the Rinehart family, please send them in care of Alexander Funeral Home-East Chapel, 2115 Lincoln Avenue, Evansville, IN 47714 (Attn: Sophie Rinehart Family) or go online to share your condolences on the Dignity Memorial Site.
If you wish to make a gift of support to the Castle Band Program in memory of Sophie Rinehart, make your check payable to the “Castle Band Boosters, Inc.” and mail to P.O. Box 641, Newburgh, IN 47629.
