Whitmer Band: "Pregame" at the 2012 State Championship Game.
One of our proudest moments!
Once a month, the Whitmer Band & Orchestra Boosters, in conjunction with the Wendy's on Laskey Road.(Miracle Mile) raise funds for the Whitmer Band and Orchestra. Wendy's donates 10% of their net sales (including drive-through!) for anyone eating at the restaurant from 5:00-8:00 PM on the last Thursday of each month. If it is convenient, plan to take your family, gather with other Whitmer music friends and raise money for our kids just by eating. Over the past several years, the boosters have raised several thousand dollars for our music students through this fund raiser!
