Important Information…

Why Music? Why Band? What gives these children an advantage? What do they have that the non-music students have? Why are music students recruited with such intensity by every profession? Click here to read the article about it.

Keep the band room and your instrument secure.  The OCRegister.com reports here about several instrument thefts in the Southland.


Help the Band!

Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.

It’s very simple to sign up. You just go the their website, Farm Fresh To You and follow the instructions when you click on the sign up tab. Don’t forget to enter the promo code “EEU” so we get 10% donated back to the program from every purchase.

Support the band with several other different fundraising opportunities here!


Gift Cards

Scrip fundraising allows families to easily earn rebates with everyday spending. 

Click here to go to our Scrip Page to learn more.   

One half of the rebate is deposited into the general EEU (Esperanza Entertainment Unit) account and one half goes directly into your son or daughter’s individual band/color guard account. 

The money earned can be used to pay for performance donations, color guard fees, jazz trips like Reno, banquet, logo wear, etc.

Scrip is a gift card for retail outlets, grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, and fast food establishments.  You can order the hard plastic cards or use Scrip now which is an email version of the scrip.  You will be surprised at how many different choices there are.   

Simply use scrip gift cards for everyday purchases or to give as gifts and see the money in your student’s band account grow.
