PARTICIPANT DONATIONS TO THE MUSIC BOOSTERS: It takes a tremendous amount of money to support a music program as outstanding as the Irish Guard. Contributions are used to pay for music, uniforms, instructors, competition fees, travel costs and much more. Without these contributions our programs would not be a success. As such, we rely on cash contributions from our students' families. These contributions are a significant part of our fundraising budget each year. Have you made your contribution?
Contributions are accepted via cash, check and credit card. To pay by cash or check, download the 2019-20 Music Booster's donation form. Checks should be made payable to DHS Music Boosters and returned to the classroom.
