Mall Avenue, from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.  Tickets are $5 each and may be purchased at the door.

The band will receive $3 for each breakfast.  Money raised will be used to help pay for students' meals on the road traveling to and from New York City.  Road meals will cost approximately $70 per student or a total of $14,000.

The Fayetteville High School Band still needs to raise some $42,000 before they leave for New York for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

More than 40 members of the FHS Band still don't have enough money in their accounts for the band's trip to New York to march in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.  Together, those students need about $10,000 to fully fund their accounts.

On top of that the Band Boosters still need to raise about $32,000 to pay for
travel expenses not covered by the money students were asked to raise.

That makes a total of $42,000 the band still needs to raise to cover costs of the trip.
