We are pleased and quite overwhelmed with the results of the 2018 Giving Challenge. Our supporters met their love of the arts and our mission as a band program with Dollars - a true measure of their desire to see great music education continue here at Lakewood Ranch.
These donations are a huge blessing to the band and will be put to use in various ways to augment the student experience. We could not have been this successful without you, The Sarasota Community Foundation and The Patterson Foundation.
Please come out to a football game, band competition or concert in 2018-19 and see the magic you have helped to create. Thank you from the kids, the parents and of course from me!
Ron Lambert, Director,
students of the Lakewood Ranch Bands
and the Lakewood Ranch Band Booster Association
