While the band is supported by the school district, additional fees (as is typical for sports) are not charged. Given the current school budget status, this leaves the band short of necessary funds. If you would like to support the band with a donation, checks payable to Urbana Bands can be sent to Mr. Hicks' attention at the high school (1002 S Race, Urbana, IL 61801).
Urbana Tigers Seat Cushions
We will be selling seat cushions at Urbana sporting events and will also have them available for pickup at the school if you would prefer. (Order enough and we will even deliver:). If you would like to reserve yours ahead of time (pick up to be arranged), please let us know as we will be ordering a limited number initially.
If you have a student in a sport and would be able to help sell the cushions at the various sporting events, we would appreciate the help.
Cushions will be orange with the black logo, 1 1/2" thick, 13 1/2" square, made of a durable vinyl and have a carrying handle.
Reserve yours today or let us know if you can help with sales by emailing urbanabands at gmail dot com.

Help the Environment and raise funds for the Urbana Band Council!
We collect used toner & ink cartridges and recycle them -- it's good for the environment and we get cash depending on the specific cartridges.
Simply send the empty cartridges to school and we will collect them from there.
Bring your old cell phones to the UHS Band Room and have them recycled to earn funds for the Urbana Bands.
