ST PATRICK’S DAY

IRELAND 2019

 
PALM SPRINGS HIGH SCHOOL

ST. PATRICKS DAY PARADE

in Dubin & Celbridge

March 14 - 19, 2019

 

On April 4th the Spirit of the Sands received the invitations seen below to be part of the St Patricks Day Parade and Festival in Ireland. This invitation was extended due to the tremendous response to the band’s performance at London’s New Year’s Parade this past year. In working with our travel agent the original pricing was similar to London at $3600 however, due to sponsorship, the lower value of the Euro, and creative travel arrangements by Mr Ingelson and our Travel Organizer, the price has dropped to $2500 less what ever the student fundraises from this (we have at least 3 direct fundraisers planned in addition to the enormously successful “Adopt a Musician”) this translates to $250 a month ($62.50 a week)  for  ten months MAY TO FEBRUARY less whatever fundraising takes place. We need to determine if we have sufficient numbers to be able to mount a band for this extraordinary experience (as we did with London, 2018 New Freshman and Graduating Seniors are invited to apply to be part of this performance tour... there will also be an Auxiliary Tour for parents and family members ) .... The District has now approved this extraordinary experience!
