Sponsor the St. George Brass Band!
Instruments, music and uniforms for a brass band are expensive. We try to reduce the financial barriers that would discourage players,
especially children, from taking up a brass instrument. Sponsorship
is therefore extremely helpful in allowing these items to be purchased and helping the Band to represent the district in band festivals and championships.
We are especially grateful for outstanding support of
* Kogarah City Council
* Georges River Council
* Earlwood - Bardwell Park RSL Club
* Lions Club of Oatley
There are a number of ways you can sponsor the band.
Uniforms and instruments can be sponsored by you or your organisation.
Donations always appreciated
Names of sponsors appear in performance programs and on this website.
If you would like more information about sponsoring the band, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
