Concert Band donates $50,000 to La Crosse Bandshell Project
The La Crosse Concert Band donates to Bandshell
LA CROSSE, Wisc. (WKBT) — A special presentation took place before the La Crosse Concert Band performance on Wednesday evening.
The La Crosse Concert Band voted unanimously to approve $50,000 towards the La Crosse Bandshell Project last year, and they presented that check Wednesday night.
The money for the investment comes from earnings from the concert band’s endowment fund and according to the La Crosse Concert Band Board, this decision was an easy one to make.
“This park has been home to the La Crosse Concert Band now for over 100 years,” said Board President, Stephen Mann. “It just makes complete sense for our organization and for who we are and what we do for this community to make sure that we have a performance space that is going to be serving our needs for another 100 years.”
The final La Crosse Concert Band performance this summer is next Wednesday on July 31.
