Fundraising Opportunities

The Band Boosters provide manpower for the Carolina Panthers Play60 Combine before each home game during the NFL season. Located at Romare Bearden Park, the Fuel Up to Play 60 Kids Combine is a free, interactive area that promotes 60 minutes of fitness through a variety of football skills and drills for children and their families
The Band Boosters and the Marching Band operate the concession stand at the camp meeting ground site in Denver each summer. Often refereed to as the “Shack”, the concession stand is open each night during the 2 weeks of camp meetings, usually in August. The stand offers a wide range of food items from hamburgers, to ice cream, milkshakes and candy.
Thanks to one of our band Parents, Chris von Dolen, he has introduced East Lincoln Marching Band to the world of Baseball! Our parents and band students volunteer their time at home games, which we work several food areas at the new BB&T Ballpark Stadium.
