The Mighty Cardinal Band, in partnership with the Melissa Booster Club, has launched a new Band Backer fundraiser; an opportunity for local businesses, organizations, and individuals to support the Melissa Band program.

Band Backer supports the Melissa Band program at both the high school and middle school levels while bringing together the Melissa community and its schools.
Donors can contribute a one-time or annual amount of $250 (White), $500 (Red), or $1,000 (Cardinal) with different perks offered at each level.

A donation of $250 secures the business, organization, or individual as an official Band Backer at the White level, and includes placement of the donor’s name or logo on the back of the Melissa Band trailer for one year.

Red- and Cardinal-level donors will be featured on the sponsors page at, and Cardinal donors will receive a Band Backer plaque for display in the home or at a business.

100% of Band Backer donations go toward the Band program and are tax-deductible. The deadline for 2016-17 Band Backer donations is Friday, Oct. 14.
