The FREE Players Drum & Bugle Corps have been invited to perform at several MAJOR events throughout 2019, including the DCA (Drum Corps Associates) World Championships in Williamsport PA – Labor Day Weekend – August 30th – September 1st. Without your help and support these trips, some of which are once in a lifetime opportunities, would not be possible.
We need your help raising Money to offset our travel and equipment expenses to make history and provide all-inclusive performance opportunities for our members. Due to our member’s additional needs to ensure maximum safety for all trips, our expenses typically exceed that of a typical Marching Band/Drum & Bugle Corps. Travel expenses include hotel, bussing, flights, meals, Nursing/Medical Support, additional Staff support to help make sure our members have proper supervision, safety and additional assistance. This way each participant that attends these trips has everything they need to be as successful and independent as possible.
The FREE Players Drum & Bugle Corps provides life-changing experiences for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. All of our Corps instruments and travel expenses are made possible exclusively through fundraising efforts, sponsorships, donations and grants.
