As our Big Bass Drum campaign comes to a close, we would like to thank you for your tremendous support! We quickly met our original goal of $10,000 and the support didn’t stop there! We were able to reach our stretch goal of $25,000 in only 28 days. Because of you, Purdue Bands & Orchestras will now establish an endowment that will generate funding to last a lifetime. Creating an endowment will ensure the drum receives proper maintenance annually, plus help benefit a crew member with a modest scholarship. Thank you so much for your help and support in keeping the Big Bass Drum “beating” at Purdue University!
