Phantom Regiment Thanks Chase Community Giving Voters
As the Chase Community Giving campaign comes to a close, we’d like to give thanks to the drum corps community, for uniting in support of the efforts of Carolina Crown, the Cavaliers, the Colts and Phantom Regiment. Though it doesn’t look like a drum corps will break into the top 6 prize-winning charities, the efforts by fans around the world to get out the vote have made it clear: support for drum corps runs deep.

In these tough economic times, that’s not pocket change to any charity, especially not for a drum corps. In our activity, $25,000 is good for replacing an aging souvenir trailer with a new one, covering the fuel costs for almost half a season, or buying many meals for the cook truck.
