Tubas Relay For Life

[Edit: Tubas won! ]


Trumpets vs. Tubas — Who Will Raise More in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life?

The Trumpets and Tubas of the UMD Band are participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life on campus this weekend, and in the midst of raising money for a great cause, they are competing to see which section can raise more money!

Mike Andrews of the Tuba Team has posted a video on You Tube explaining “why the Tubas relay, and why people should donate to us instead of the trumpets.” He is inviting the us to watch their video, and if you enjoy it, to donate to the Tuba Team.

To be fair, and because all money raised is for a great cause, he also passed along the Trumpet Team information.

The trumpets are touching, and the tubas are… well, tubas!

They will be deciding the winner at 12 AM this Sunday morning, so if you want to help a section, please donate before then. If now is not a good time, but you’d like to donate later, the American Cancer Society will continue to accept donations through August.

So if you like to have your funny bone tickled, or your heart touched, there’s something here for you. Go Tubas!
