The Blue Stars Drum & Bugle Corps has been on multi-year plan to upgrade our entire fleet to meet the current and future needs of the organization. In that time we've built a new equipment trailer, made repairs to and wrapped the souvenir trailer, and put two new 15-passenger vans into the fleet. Now it's time to tackle the single largest project we've ever had to manage from a complexity and monetary standpoint: the design and build of a New Kitchen Trailer.
The new trailer will contain 5,000 cubic feet of space. The estimated cost to design and manufacture the New Kitchen Trailer is $450,000. Breaking it down, each cubic foot in the trailer - One Kitchen Cube - will cost $90. We need people to sponsor one or more Kitchen Cubes to help us realize the dream of putting a new kitchen trailer on the road.
The estimated cost to design and manufacture the New Kitchen Trailer is $450,000. This is not a small task and will take a tremendous organizational effort to see this dream turn into reality. We are fortunate to have an anonymous angel donor who has put up the first $100,000 toward the project – more than 1111 Kitchen Cubes and more than 20% toward our goal!
But, we will need your help to get us to the finish line!
