KSUMB New Fundraiser Information:

We are excited to announce an exciting new collaboration with La Familia Salsa Co., from "Deep in the HOT of Texas"! La Familia has generously donated a variety of their all-natural, homemade salsas for the band to sell as an additional fundraiser for the 2015 season. Band members will be selling salsa in person as quantities remain available throughout the fall at La Familia's list prices of $7 per jar for regular salsas and $10 per jar for specialty salsas. 100% of the proceeds of jars purchased directly from the KSUMB will be donated to the Marching Pride Scholars scholarship fund, and these jars will feature a special KSUMB Marching Willie sticker!

Salsa varieties available from the KSUMB include:


Salsa Verde (Mild) - $7
Salsa Rojo (Medium) - $7
Roasted Green Salsa (Medium) - $7
Roasted Red Salsa (Medium) - $7
Green Ghost Salsa (Hot) - $10


For family, friends, and Pride supporters everywhere, however, La Familia is offering a wonderful opportunity to support The Pride while still enjoy their wonderful products. By shopping their online store at www.lafamiliasalsa.com this fall, Pride supporters will be offered the full range of the company's products delivered to their door! Simply enter code "THEPRIDE" in the "notes" section at checkout, and La Familia Salsa Co. will donate half the proceeds of that order to the KSUMB Marching Pride Scholars fund. Please note that there is no discount for using this code, and persons ordering will still be responsible to cover the cost of shipping.
