(COBB COUNTY, Ga.) — A Cobb County band will now get to showcase their talent nationally in the Sugar Bowl Parade and game thanks to a generous donation from one of Atlanta-based law firms.
On Thursday Withermite Law Group and 1-800-TruckWreck announced that they will present Pebblebrook High School Band with a $15,000 check on Dec. 28.
The donation will help go towards the band’s opportunity to participate in the 2022 Sugar Bowl Parade and game.
The parade takes place Dec. 30 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Sugar Bowl between Alabama and Kansas State will take place on New Year’s Day.
According to the release, Pebblebrook High Schools will be the only high school band from Georgia selected to partake in the parade and game.
“Despite the challenges they may face, our students are resilient and dedicated. They’ve worked extremely hard and deserve this opportunity to perform on the national stage, as well as to enjoy the sights and sounds of New Orleans,” said Eulas Kirtdoll, band director of Pebblebrook High School. “We’re grateful for our partnership with Witherite Law Group and look forward to continuing to collaborate with the organization to advance our students.”
In 2021, the band won the Atlanta High School Band Challenge that was sponsored by the law group.
The funds from the law group will help cover travel, hotel accommodations, food and cultural experience for 104 students.
