Rochester Drum Corps collects holiday donations during an announcement of their own Capital Campaign
ROCHESTER, NY, NOVEMBER 25, 2006: The Empire Statesmen, Rochester’s championship drum and bugle corps, kickoff another season by collecting holiday donations for children in need, and by announcing a major fundraising campaign to secure the future of their programs.
This is the Statesmen’s first full rehearsal for the new season
and donations of food, clothing, and toys will go to families
supported by the Salvation Army and the SKIP Generation program. Last year, 4 local families received huge baskets of holiday food, toys, and clothing from corps members.
The Empire Statesmen brought 12 million dollars of revenue to
Rochester and Monroe County with the hosting of the 2006 DCA
World Championships, and will host the event again for 2007.
The Empire Statesmen also operate the Empire Cadets youth
development program. Since 1975 over 15,000 area children have participated. “The Statesmen need the community’s support to continue our high-level programming”, says Assistant Director David Bruni.
The Empire Statesmen and Empire Cadets Capital Campaign kicked off this past Labor Day weekend and is well underway. Don and Pamela Rhoda, Campaign Co-Chairs, explain that “volunteers have been assembled and begin plans to ask the community for support.” The campaign will be looking to raise 3 million dollars to support both capital needs and the establishment of the Vincent Bruni Endowment fund. The earned interest from the endowment fund will support annual operating expenses for many years to come.
