Bingham Band Boosters / Fundraising

The Bingham Band Boosters are a group of parents and non-parent supporters of the Bingham Bands. It is made up of an executive board of five members including the Band Director that each preside over multiple committees staffing the many needs of the Bingham Bands and the students that make up our ensembles. This group functions outside of the Athletic Booster Club at Bingham High School, and solely supports the Bingham Band program. Anyone is welcome to be a part of this very important group and volunteer members are always needed. Membership is free to all who are interested in helping out the bands.

There is a parent kick-off meeting during the fall band camp in August every year where parents and others interested in supporting the BHS bands will gather for information pertaining to that coming year, and take the opportunity to sign up for any of the myriad of committees that need staffing. This meeting and meeting time can be found on the Band Calendar on the Home page. These committees include chaperones, meals, concert ushers, transportation, advertising, fundraising, and uniforms to name a few. Committees and contact information is listed below.

If you are interested in becoming a member of this fine organization, or interested in heading up one of the committees that still need a chairperson and are blank below, please contact Marta Ahlstrom, President, or any of the members of the executive board listed below in bold print.

Do you have a great fundraising idea or suggestion for a service to make the Bingham Bands even better?

We always want to hear from our parents and patrons, and welcome their comments and suggestions for fundraisers and other opportunities to make the Bands at Bingham even more successful! If you have an idea that you would like to present to the Band Booster Executive Board, just contact any member listed below in bold and schedule a time at their next meeting! They will discuss your suggestions with you and see how we can implement them. There is always room for additional opportunities for our students to succeed and our parents to get involved!

Own a piece of Bingham History & reserve your Bingham Pillows now!

Old Bingham Marching Band Uniforms are getting a new lease on life as cool and VERY unique decorative Bingham Pillows! The old uniforms, which were designed and purchased for the Bingham Bands' trip to the Holiday Bowl in 1990, were the performance attire for the BHS marching band in parades, football games and competitions for 13 years. After being retired and placed in storage boxes when the band purchased new uniforms in 2003, the old duds are now coming back out and giving Bingham Band fans and friends a chance to own a piece of one-of-a-kind Bingham memorabilia!

Made from the original, high-quality uniform material, the pillows can be used for display or actual use. The finished product will feature all the fine stitching details of the original uniforms including embroidered lettering, shoulder patch and epaulet. We are also selling off the remaining hats that went along with the uniforms - both items perfect as a souvenir for that former band student or Bingham souvenir hound!

We kicked off the sale of these pillows by auctioning off three at the Annual Jazz Dinner Dance last year. They are now offered to the general public at $125 each. These are going to be RARE and orders will be taken first come, first serve basis with payment made in full in the BHS main office and the receipt with date and time stamps turned in to the band office.   Supplies will be EXTREMELY limited as we only have about 65 old uniforms remaining and each pillow uses up an entire uniform so reserve yours today! Contact Mr. Graber or Marta Ahlstrom, Band Booster President for more information about these now that they have hit the market, and check out the pictures to see what the finished Bingham Pillows look like! Don't miss out!

Bingham School Spirit Decals and Game Day shirts available at home games!

The Bands are selling great looking School Spirit Decals along with their annual 'Game Day' shirts and other swag! These vinyl decals representing your Bingham spirit or BHS Band ties are great looking, colored decals perfect for your home, rear car window, school folder, laptop, tablets, or practically anything you want to dress up with your Bingham pride! Great either indoors or out. Choose from 'Bingham Bands' or 'Bingham Miners'. Get yours for $5 at football games and other events where 'Game Day' shirts, Thunder Sticks and Bingham wristbands are also sold!

Bingham Band Trailer Business / Corporate Advertising

The BHS Bands are selling advertising space on our band trailers to local businesses and corporate sponsors. Your business info or corporate logo can be seen all across the state of Utah and the intermountain west on both our 24 ft AND 50 ft moving vans, and you will be supporting public education at the same time! This is a great opportunity to make a huge difference for the many students that call the Bingham Bands home, and be a major part of the continued success of the bands at Bingham High!

The cost to advertise with the Bingham Bands is extremely affordable, and for just $500 per year, your 1' X 2' logo will be displayed on both sides of BOTH of our trailers for the entire year - a total of 8 square feet of dedicated ad space! These trailers travel from Logan to St. George and all points in between throughout the school year, and in fact travel to southern California with us every year on tour! Space is still available and if you sign up early, you can have some input on the placement of your ad for maximum effectiveness! We would also be interested in trading ad space for services to the band of equal value! Of course, purchasing an ad from the Bingham Bands is tax deductible!

Contact Marta Ahlstrom or the Fundraising Chairperson for more information and availability, and join the likes of Big 'O' Tires, Salt Lake Travel and others that are advertising with The Bingham Bands! Check back here frequently for updates and info on how you can support the Bands at Bingham, and thanks in advance for purchasing advertising space on our trailers!
