Why I Give: Carla Gossell

Photo_GossellCarlaCarla Gossell has been donating to Pacific Crest since 2007, but has been following drum corps for 40 years.

“I’m always telling others about this wonderful activity that helps young people excel musically and personally. When I donate, I feel a sense of pride that I’m helping the corps accomplish its goals.”

The biggest impression we made on her? The day in Rome, New York, when members of the brass section played the Ave Maria (PC’s corps song) for an elderly resident near the stadium. “I was in tears,” says Gossell.

“Don’t even think twice about donating. Compared to the long hours and work the members put into this, it’s the least we can do.”
