Lawton, Okla._Cache High School's marching band is one step closer to Washington D.C. They were invited to our nation's capitol by Senator Jim Inhofe to represent our state and our veterans at the memorial day parade.
Band Director Benjamin Silber said, "To be able to go to Washington and to be able to perform on behalf of them is a huge honor and a privilege."
But they need money to get there and that's why they held a concert/auction at the Great Plains Coliseum Thursday night.
The kids and parents are determined to raise enough funds so everyone in the band can make this once in a lifetime trip.
"After talking to some of the kids in the band, some of them have never even been out of the county, so this is a major deal for them," said Cache Band Booster President Juan Rodriguez.
The trip is going to cost about $65,000. The Cache band will hold another fundraising event on March 10th. It will be a breakfast at the Cache multipurpose building at 11 a.m.
