Holiday Extravaganza Volunteers

The 10th annual Hampton Bands' Holiday Extravaganza will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at Hampton High School (2929 McCully Road, Allison Park, PA). Since this is our biggest fundraiser of the school year, MANY volunteers are needed to set up on December 2nd and to work the event on December 3rd!! We are asking all band students AND parents for their help to continue to make the Extravaganza a success, so please take time to sign up here to help! This fundraiser also financially supports the music needs of the Middle School and Elementary School bands and we are asking for those families to also participate by either volunteering time and/or other donated items.
