The Marching Band has been invited to take part in StreetEats Miami, a food truck and music festival happening at Eastside Christian Church (behind Scene75) on August 3 from 3-10pm. The band will be performing a short set on the main stage, and the Boosters will be running a booth. Band members and Boosters will also be staffing volunteer stations throughout the festival.
StreetEats Miami will donate $1500 to the Band Boosters to recognize our service throughout the weekend. More information and volunteer signups to come in the next several weeks.

Ongoing Fundraisers

Did you know that you can support the Milford Public School Band Boosters, just by purchasing your groceries? The boosters rely heavily on fundraising to offset the cost of marching band, drum line, winter guard, and jazz band.

Milford Band Boosters are part of the Kroger Community Rewards program! Kroger Community Rewards makes fundraising easy by donating to local organizations based on the shopping you do every day....at no cost to you! Once you link your Kroger Plus card to Milford Band Boosters, all you have to do is shop at Kroger and swipe your Plus Card! This program brought over $3,000 to our organization last year.

Please visit www.krogercommunityrewards.com to enroll. Our organization is Milford Band Boosters, number QU736.
