Generous donation to send HS band to Washington, D.C.

RUSSELLVILLE, AR (KAIT) - An Arkansas high school band has raised enough money to march at the 2017 Presidential Inaugural Parade.

The Russellville Band Boosters set up a gofundme campaign to raise $150,000.

On Monday, a private donor gave the campaign $137,605 pushing them over their goal at $150,045.

Russellville was the only band in the state to receive an invitation.

The band also marched for Jimmy Carter's inauguration in 1977 and Bill Clinton's in 1997.
