Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose

November 15, 2019

Band practice this week was bitterly cold, but the Pride of South marching band members all had warm hearts, thanks to your generosity. View the video below to check out their happy faces.


Because of you, Ole Miss continues to beat LSU in the Battle of the Bands!


But LSU is certain to make a Hail Mary pass to go for the last-minute, come-from-behind win. Today, LSU donors have closed the gap. As of Friday afternoon, the score stands at:


LSU: 309


Rebel fans can’t stop, and we can’t become complacent. To beat LSU in the Magnolia Bowl: Battle of the Bands, all of us need to share this contest with family, friends and co-workers. A gift of any size can make sure Ole Miss comes out on top when the clock runs out at tomorrow’s kickoff at the game.

Forward, Rebels! Thank you and Hotty Toddy!

You’ve Given 110% Against LSU

November 14, 2019

You’ve put it all on the line for your Ole Miss Family in the Battle of the Bands: Magnolia Bowl. As of this morning, we hit 110 percent of our goal!

Thank you for going above and beyond to support the Pride of the South.


In the meantime, our dedicated band members are showing why they deserve every single gift. This week, they practiced in 27-degree weather to perfect the halftime performance for this weekend’s game against LSU. Our trombones were literally icing over in the extreme cold. But just like you, they gave 110 percent for our amazing Rebel fans and student-athletes.


Check out Drum Major Catherine Adams, pictured below, all bundled up as she led practice.


The scoreboard, as of this morning:


LSU: 214


But, as you know, in sports and fundraising, it’s not over ‘til it’s over. LSU’s working on some big plays to try to make a comeback in the last minutes of the game. Please, help us keep the momentum going by sharing this project on social media. Encourage your friends to join the effort to beat LSU by making a gift to the Ole Miss Marching Band. Your support will help fund travel, practice field renovations, uniforms, instruments and student scholarships.

Thank you again and HOTTY TODDY!
