“PLAY YOUR PART” PROGRAM
The Gaston Symphonic Band is a non-profit organization. Proceeds from miscellaneous sales make up only a small percentage of the income needed to keep a successful symphonic band program afloat. All monetary gifts go directly towards the purchase of music scores, concert venue rental, replacement & repair of instruments, insurance, marketing and ongoing program development. Your tax deductible donation helps to provide a musical program of high standards to our community.
The Band offers an excellent way for you to contribute and keep informed about upcoming events. By becoming a member of our “Pay Your Part” program, you will receive information ahead of time about upcoming events via e-mail, telephone or mail.

All “Play Your Part” members will be recognized in our Concert Program
As a Title Sponsor your company will receive the opportunity to be the honorary MC of a concert. Your company will be recognized as the sponsor of the concert. Your employees/representatives can greet and hand-out programs. You will also receive business card advertising in the event programs for one year.
If you own a business and would like to become a Corporate Sponsor, simply mail a business card along with a check for $150.00 to the address below and your business will be in all the concert programs. Our remaining performances will give your business exposure to thousands of people who are already interested in supporting their community.
