Jazz Band Dinner Dance Fundraiser

Music Days Fundraiser

  • Each August on the last Friday and Saturday of the month, the Lemont High School Band Parents Association (LHSBPA) takes to the streets of Lemont to collect donations to support the LHS band program. All band parents are required to either sign up for one location per student in the band program or to buy out for $75 per student in the band program.

Practice-A-Thon Fundraiser

  • Each August, the Lemont High School Marching Band hosts a PRACTICE-A-THON at the Lemont High School Football Stadium on the first Saturday after school begins. Members of the community are invited to view the high school’s competitive marching program while enjoying food, games, raffles, and fun activities for the whole family. The band performs a movement from its upcoming competitive marching season as well as fan favorites for the crowd to enjoy. The PRACTICE-A-THON helps raise funds to support the LHS band program, including instrument and uniform maintenance and repair, competition admission and travel expenses, and more. Tax-deductible donations are greatly appreciated. We could not run the program without the support of the amazing Lemont community. Thank you! For more information about helping with this fundraiser, email Band Parent Carol Held at carolheld1419@comcast.net
