There are several great ways your business can advertise in the 2021 Viper Thunder Classic program.      

We are hosting our Viper Thunder Classic Invitational in the Fall 2021.  This event requires many volunteers to make sure we are successful and raise money for the Viper Vanguard.  We need your help!  Please attend our Member meetings to get involved in the preparations for this awesome event!!


In years past, VIPS itself had paid for all of the supplies needed to put this event together, greatly diminishing the amount of money we had brought in for the benefit of our kids.   In comparing our event with other high schools, we took note that other schools ask for donations of the supplies. When everyone pitches in a bit,  the bands' profits are tremendously increased. This year, in an effort to maximize our fundraising efforts, we are asking parents to PLEASE SIGN UP TO DONATE WHAT YOU CAN. We know this can be a HUGE SUCCESS for our band, but we REALLY need everyone's help!
