Sponsor the Westwood Area Bands
The Westwood Area Band Boosters (WABB) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization comprised of band parents and guardians of students enrolled in the band programs of Canyon Vista Middle School, Grisham Middle School, and Westwood High School. Don’t let the name WESTWOOD Area Band Boosters fool you – the middle school programs contribute to the success of the Westwood band program and reap huge benefits from the WABB. The WABB is one of just a handful of band booster clubs in the entire state of Texas that fund middle school programs to the extent that we do. Because face it, no matter how wonderful and talented the high school program is, the students have a habit of graduating and moving on. Without successful, talented middle school students moving up to Westwood, the high school program will not be sustained.
Our musicians get their start and learn their musical chops from Westwood's feeder middle schools, Canyon Vista Middle School and Grisham Middle School. Each of these schools foster their own strong, award-winning band programs that turn out the amazing students that make up the Westwood Warrior Band. Each year, the Westwood Warrior marching band competes in competitions across the United States and has received the highest possible UIL rating for over 20 years. Our concert band consistently achieves high levels at UIL competitions, and our individual performers are often found ranking highly at solo and ensemble competitions as well as district, region, area, and state band contests.
However, we cannot accomplish all of this without our Sponsors.
Sponsorships are very important to the continued success of our band programs and provide vital support, such as:
- meals for the band during long practice sessions and before competitions,
- fees for clinicians who provide expert instruction and guidance for our students,
- supplies for making props, flags, and costumes for the marching shows, color guard, and winter guard,
- travel to and from competitions,
- music licensing, composition and scoring,
- new instruments and instrument repair, and
- other unexpected costs that might arise.
Sponsoring the Westwood Area Bands is a great way to connect with the Westwood community. Depending on the level of sponsorship you choose, you will gain visibility through our publications, signage and at home football games (see the below Sponsor Form for details). And as a sponsor, your donation (whether financial or an in-kind product or service) is completely tax deductible.
