Join Us As We BUILD The Crown For The Next 25 Years
The Joy is BUILDING ... for the future. In the spring we talked about Growing up Crown and expanding the Crown organization so we could reach more young people. Today we have a plan to achieve this goal. But we need a foundation to build upon--and we need your support to make it happen.
There we can house a local music store and rehearsal space designed to serve young people in the Charlotte Metro area with low-cost instruments, educational opportunities, and access to performing ensembles.
There we can create a new Crown performing ensemble, made up of local and national performers, that will compete nationally and internationally year-round.
There we can park vehicles, store equipment, house the CrownSTORE, rehearse the York County Honor Band, and proudly display the 2013 World Championship trophy for all to see!
But to achieve this goal we must first complete two major projects:
1. Re-cover the Crown equipment trailer and the Crown mobile kitchen. These are the two large tractor-trailers that carry food for the members and all of their instruments.
2. Refurbish the Crown vans and staff/volunteer vehicle, and purchase a much-needed box truck.
The first step toward BUILDING The Crown begins with you!
Our equipment trailer and mobile kitchen travel the country representing the Crown organization as the most visible vehicles in the fleet. They were last refurbished seven long years ago and they must be re-covered this year! They have to look spectacular and reflect the fact that we have the most amazing supporters in the activity!
Give a Holiday Gift to Carolina Crown in support of this project and your name will be proudly displayed on the Crown Equipment Trailer as an actual building block that forms the Carolina Crown symbol. Your name will stand with every donor and alumnus who has given to this project and made the first step of our dream a reality.
For a $25 gift we will add your name to the Crown image on the Crown Equipment Trailer.
For a $50 gift we will put your name on the truck, and we will send you this commemorative Crown ornament. This handcrafted ornament has been designed and produced locally in Fort Mill, South Carolina by a longtime Crown supporter.
For a $75 gift we will put your name and your family’s name on the truck and inscribe your family’s name onto your ornament.
For a $100 gift you can have an ornament sent as a special gift to a friend or family member. We will inscribe your name and the gift recipient’s name onto an ornament and add your family name to the truck.
We have to raise $20,000 to take on this first project and re-cover both the equipment and kitchen trailers. So we are counting on you and your support. We want you to see the two trailers this summer completely decked out in their shiny new paint jobs and know that YOU had a part in BUILDING the Crown for the future.
