Cobb County funds only a small portion of the annual expense of running our wonderful Walton Orchestras program. The general operating budget of Walton Orchestras is which is used to purchase music and instruments as well as to pay competition fees and clinicians. To assist in meeting this budget our Booster club, the Walton Raider Orchestra Guild Inc. coordinates several fundraisers.
In addition to the general operating budget, a student’s family should anticipate paying annual orchestra fees and banquet tickets. Trips necessitate additional costs.
Through our fundraising programs, students not only assist the orchestra in reaching its general operation budget but they can also earn funds which can be used to offset costs for trips and fees.
