Dress a Marching Leatherneck: Band Uniform Campaign
After hundreds of performances over more than a decade, the time has arrived for a uniform change. The Marching Leathernecks are excited to announce the design of a new uniform that will honor tradition while incorporating contemporary style and technology.
While the new uniform will keep the current hat design and, of course, the tradition of Western purple and gold, several modifications have been made to give an improved look and wear, some of which are detailed on the adjacent page.
Our goal is to raise $75,000 this spring to fund our new uniforms. Thanks to a generous lead gift from Gene Teeter of Mt. Carroll, IL, we are well on our way to a new look for the Marching Leathernecks.
Please consider a gift to help outfit the Marching Leathernecks so that, with your support, we will introduce the new uniforms with the 2011 Leatherneck football season!
