Special Gift to NOBOB – Parents Please Read

Hello Everyone,

My name is Jerry Kasarcik. I’m the NOBOB Treasurer for the 2017/2018 school year. I’d like to make you aware of a special pledge made to NOBOB by a local family. If you could please take a few minutes to read this over, I would greatly appreciate it.

The family has pledged to match dollar for dollar up to $2,500 raised by NOBOB for the future purchase of new marching band uniforms.


This year, 150 uniforms were purchased. However, the need for new uniforms did not stop there. Mr. Kalish estimates NOBOB might need to purchase 5 – 10 uniforms in any given year to add sizes, allow for growth in the band, and for normal wear and tear. Plans are in the works to add to the current uniform stock during 2018. Each new uniform costs approx. $400 – $500 depending on quantity ordered.

To make a contribution towards this special pledge, please complete the pledge form available at this link or on the NOBOB form page. Doing so will help NOBOB take full advantage of the dollar for dollar match.

If you joined NOBOB and made an additional tax deductible donation for “Uniform Replacement”, your donation has already been counted toward the pledge.

I’ll send an update via Charms approximately every 30 – 60 days with our progress towards reaching the pledge goal of $2,500.

Thank you in advance for considering a tax-deductible gift to the NOBOB Uniform Replacement Fund.
