Lee High School's Mighty Rebel Band Will March in Pasadena Rose Parade

Out of hundreds of bands, Lee High School's Mighty Rebel Band was one of 20 chosen to march in the Pasadena Rose Parade.
MIDLAND TX (Local Big 2 News) - Out of hundreds of applicants, Lee High School's Mighty Rebel Band was chosen to march in the 2015 Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade. It's the first time since 1993 that Lee High School's band was chosen. Of the hundreds of bands that apply, only twenty are selected each year.

Fundraising efforts to help offset travel expenses are already underway. Supporters say this gives students a once in a lifetime opportunity.

"This particular project will give several students who have never been outside of the state of Texas the opportunity to go to California," explains fundraiser organizer Abel Quintela.

Quintela says every dollar the school can raise helps significantly. A golf tournament Monday at Green Tree Country Club raised over $6,000 for the trip. He estimates the cost per student will be $2,000 each.
