Letter to the Editor: Thank you for helping our band students

The Italy Gladiator Regiment Band and Booster Club would like to thank the many generous people of this community who donated items and who attended the spaghetti dinner fundraiser Saturday evening.

A big thank you goes to Doris Mitchell who allowed the fundraiser to be held at the Uptown Café.

Davee Garcia did an amazing job organizing the event and Doug Nelson was a great emcee for the evening. Thank you is not enough.

We also appreciate the generous donations from Mark Stiles, Vicki Coffman, Chili’s, Johnny Carino’s in Waxahachie, Target, Vicki Coffman, Flossie Gowin, Bridget Coers (Baking 4 Your Babies), Planet Beach, Sheraton Suites, Italy Cleaners and Marsha Clayton & Mother Parkers.

This event would not have been the success it was without the support and effort of the band boosters/parents. Parents and booster club members donated most of the food items in order to keep costs down. Their efforts were above and beyond expectations.

The band students did an excellent job serving customers and keeping them entertained with music.

And of course, the Gladiator Regiment Band would not be the success it is without the efforts of Jesus Perez and Erica Miller, band directors. 

Again, thank you for supporting the band in their fundraising effort.

Band booster president
