“Pacific Crest was a real turning point for our son. He learned how to push through physical and mental obstacles to reach a goal.  He also learned the joy and responsibility of being part of something bigger than himself.” “Pacific Crest was one of the best experiences of my life because I was pushed to my limit, giving it all on a field with 149 brothers and sisters who care about each other.” “Pacific Crest truly teaches young men and women to not only be artistically excellent, but how to be leaders — self-sufficient, loyal and committed to building a strong product.”

Dear friend:

You understand drum corps and how it changes students’ lives.

When someone talks about drum corps, you get it.

Each summer, 150 students are changed by Pacific Crest, yet their tuition does not cover our costs.

In fact, while tuition is $3375, we will spend $6170 per student. That is what it takes to deliver the quality program they deserve.

Your support can help fill the gap and make our program possible.

100 Cities – 1 Shared Goal

Our students come from many backgrounds, but share one single passion – to perform in front of appreciative fans.

They want to be pushed artistically… and physically. They know it’s tough, but that’s what attracts them. It’s simply who they are.

You can help them reach their goal of performing at the highest level.

This is also about perseverance and grit.

Come to a rehearsal, and you will hear the word “Reset.” Working toward personal excellence is central to Pacific Crest.

When our students leave the comfort of home for two months, they are focused – without distraction – on becoming great.

They learn to persevere – to keep at it in the face of challenge. They develop coping skills for everyday life. And they build the character and grit necessary for productive lives as adults.

For all these reasons, I hope you will make a gift to the 2017 Pacific Crest Tour Fund.

You can help us deliver an experience of a lifetime – one that pushes our students beyond their perceived limits to build character and maturity.

With gratitude,

Stuart Pompel
Executive Director
