Eastern Alamance band members (pictured) perform during the 2018 Hometown Holiday celebration in downtown Mebane.

The Eastern Alamance High School Marching Band will be representing North Carolina in this year’s National Independence Day Parade in Washington, DC. This honor is not without expense. To help students pay for this trip, the EA Marching Band Boosters is hosting a raffle for a trip for two to Hawaii. The winning ticket will receive round-trip airline transportation to Honolulu and a five-night hotel stay on the island of Oahu.

Every dollar students raise goes directly toward the cost of the trip. This is due in part to the generous contribution by RE/MAX Diamond Realty for donating ticket printing cost. Raffle tickets are $25 each or five tickets for $100.

The winning ticket will be announced Thursday, May 16, at 8 p.m. at Eat for the Band Night hosted by Hwy 55 in Mebane. Raffle winner must be 18 years of age or older to win, however you do not need to be present to win. For information on purchasing tickets, contact the Band Boosters at eahsbandboosters@gmail.com.
