TPMS Band PIFT Candy Shack Wrap-Up
Thanks to the efforts and generosity of TPMS Band families, we had a VERY successful day at the 2016 TPMS Band PIFT Candy Shacks on Saturday, October 15!

TPMS Band volunteers in the Candy Shacks at this year's Poway Invitational Field Tournament (PIFT) at Poway High also got to watch field shows performed by 17 regional marching bands, including Poway High's Emerald Brigade. Thank you parents and students for all your hard work!

Our two Candy Shacks sold almost 1,200 items! Because donations from our generous TPMS Band families covered most of the merchandise expenses, $1,144 went directly to our Band program!

We'd also like to thank the Poway High School Music Boosters for allowing us to host the PIFT Candy Shacks again this year. PIFT is a major fundraiser for the TPMS Band, plus it gives our kids a great introduction to the excitement of field tournaments. We greatly appreciate their support.
