Dear Parents and Supporters:
Each year, the Band Boosters of Heritage & E.C. Glass High Schools host what has become the oldest running marching band competition in the Commonwealth, the Lynchburg Classic. This year’s Classic on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at Lynchburg’s historic City Stadium will mark the 42nd Anniversary of this time-honored tradition. What was started in 1974 as a parade and marching competition with ten bands, now boasts a participation of over fifteen bands from across the Commonwealth and North Carolina. In addition to over one thousand student participants, their band support staff and parents/supporters, the event has an estimated audience of over twenty-five hundred spectators in attendance each year! Quite an evening! Quite an event!
One of the ways our event raises funds each year is through the solicitation of business and personal advertisements for the Lynchburg Classic event program. This program advertisement offers area business leaders the opportunity to reach thousands of people while supporting the band programs of Heritage and E.C. Glass High Schools. The event program is a very popular item at the Classic with program sell outs each year!
Download Our 2016 Lynchburg Classic Ad Sales Packet which includes all pricing and ad space information associated with our event program. Ad sizes range from that of an eighth of a page to a full-page with prices ranging from $25 to $500. We offer special placement for the back and inside and outside covers. Their donation to the Lynchburg Classic can also be tax deductible. We also offer special parent/supporter personal ads to send a special “shout out” to your favorite BOMM member.
The Heritage High School Band receives 75% of every advertisement that we sell which can add up quickly. Last year we made a little over $1500 in ad sales alone!! All ads are due back to Mr. Hand by September 23, 2016.
We appreciate your support of our band program while promoting a business or your favorite member of TEAM 40!! Three service points are also awarded for every $ 20 in advertisements sold.
Should you have any questions or need additional information please feel free to contact the band office.
