Pasadena Tournament of Roses Steps Up Sponsorship

The Pasadena Tournament of Roses is a Presenting Sponsor of the 2017 edition of Drum Corps at the Rose Bowl. The Association’s sponsorship will allow 250 economically disadvantaged students to attend the show free of charge!

The Tournament of Roses is best known for the two major events they produce, the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl Game. What began as a small effort by Pasadena’s distinguished Valley Hunt Club to promote the city’s charm and beautiful weather, the Tournament of Roses has since become America’s New Year Celebration. The Rose Parade, celebrating its 129th year in 2018, greets the world on the first day of the year and salutes the community spirit and love of pageantry that have thrived in Pasadena for more than a century.

“The Tournament of Roses joins Lone Star Percussion as the event’s elite and premier sponsors!” Executive Director Stuart Pompel said of the sponsorship. “This support will make a huge difference in the lives of the regions’ high school band students, many of whom simply don’t have the funds to purchase a ticket to the show.”
