Pledge Parties! What are they?

September 11, 2019

During the weeks leading up to Playathon on November 8th, various families host pledge parties.  Band kids gather at a student’s home, form groups, and walk the neighborhood, sharing their music along the way.  The kids talk about Rio’s music program and collect pledges too. Dates, locations, and times are posted in the band room so check them out!  No pledge party in your neighborhood? Please pledge here!
