ROXBURY, NJ – Parents, students, musicians and people who love to see marching bands will flock to Succasunna next month for the 10th Annual Marching Band Classic. All of them will get a free program.

That’s why local businesses should consider advertising in the program, said Danielle Kovach, a member of the Roxbury High School Band Parents Association who is helping organize the Classic.

“Our Classic brings in about 3,000 people,” Kovach said. So far, 11 high school marching bands have signed-up to perform at the Sept. 29 event, taking place at Roxbury High School.

Ads in the program will be seen not only by Roxbury residents but also by people from nearby towns who come to watch their schools’ bands compete, noted Kovach.

Money raised by business ads and sponsorships “goes directly to the students” for musical instrument repair, uniforms, supplies and other expenses in the Roxbury High School band program, Kovach said. The Marching Band Classic is the program’s biggest fundraiser, she said.

“Support from businesses is an essential component to the success of the fundraiser,” Kovach said. “We are so thankful for the support Roxbury businesses have graciously given us in the past and we are looking forward to their continued participation. Our program book creates a partnership between our schools and community and is a vital component to helping our students succeed in the band program.”
