While we strive to support every endeavor and need of the Dragon Band, there are some things that the band needs that we simply are unable to fund. The RRBB annual budget is established to support only the critical needs of the band. When we reach our 100% fundraising goals for the year, we are able to pay for those critical needs. If we exceed our fundraising goals, we could we pay for some of the items on this growing wishlist. When you support the RRBB, you help us take one step further to crossing off items on this list:
