The Newkirk High School Tiger Pride Marching Band has scheduled several fundraisers for its "Peach Bowl or Bust" campaign.

The band, composed of students in grades 7-12, has been invited to perform in Atlanta on New Years Eve to compete and perform at the 2015 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

The band is self-sufficient when it comes to funding. Students will be at the Wal-Mart in Arkansas City, Kan., on Sept. 26-27 and Oct. 3-4. They will be at the Ponca City Wal-Mart Oct. 17-18 and Nov. 7-8.

Kelly Bickford, whose son Keenan, a sophomore, is the leader of the percussion section and drum line captain, said the students will be at each site for 8 hours on each of the dates listed.

The band has set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds and will have other fundraisers coming up. They have a goal of $35,000 and welcome all donations.
