Support the Blue Stars' 2014 Annual Campaign
Mar 27, 2014 8:34 AM

2014 is a very special year for the Blue Stars, as we are celebrating our 50th Anniversary! From our humble beginnings in 1964 as a color guard the corps established itself as a powerhouse through the 60s and 70s, redefined itself as one of the top small corps in the world, and ultimately made a triumphant return to DCI World Class status in 2006. Through it all, our members, staff, volunteers, supporters have strived to live each day according to our motto: Finis Coronat Opus (FCO) – ‘The End Crowns the Work.'

We rely on the financial support of people like you to offset the significant costs of touring and keep tuition as low as possible! Student tuition covers less than half of our annual operating expenses – this is why I am asking you to continue making this positive, life-changing educational opportunity available.

In honor of our 50th Anniversary, we have received a $50,000 fundraising challenge grant. If we can raise $50,000 or more by June 1, 2014 we will receive a dollar for dollar match. This is an incredible opportunity for the organization to lay the financial foundation for the next 50 years. Help us receive every dollar of the matching gift by making your contribution today!
