The John Carroll Band Booster Organization is a volunteer organization open to all parents of students who are actively involved in one of the band programs at John Carroll.

Mission and Activities

The mission of the Band Booster Organization is to provide fund raising support to ensure that the band has the necessary equipment, uniforms and transportation to represent John Carroll at athletic events and band competitions. One of the primary sources of revenue for the Band Boosters is the operation of the food concessions at all home athletic events. In addition to managing concession stand income and expenses, the Booster treasurer assists the band director in collecting band fees and trip fees and in maintaining all band parent accounts.
The Booster Board also helps with communication between the band director and band parents and among parents of band students. The Boosters hold board meetings and meetings of all band parents alternating every other month, publish a Newsletter periodically, and maintain a phone tree. Boosters’ operations workers help move equipment for home and away football games, for parades, and for concerts. Booster field parents assist with chaperoning and support in the stands and on fieldtrips. Our publicist takes videos and still photographs. Our wardrobe mistress helps with uniforms. The Hospitality Committee organizes receptions following concerts and refreshments for Booster meetings and for SuperJazz band members on their concert days.
