Mariachi Los Pumas de Roskruge GoFundMe
Tuesday, January 28, 2020 - Sunday, March 15, 2020
GoFundMe for a potential story about a campaign for Mariachi Los Pumas de Roskruge, a group of extremely talented middle school kids with a passion for music and culture at Roskruge Bilingual Magnet School in Tucson, AZ. The group will be attending the Tucson International Mariachi Conference in April 2020. There, they will have an opportunity to compete and win funds for their school’s music program. However, many students’ families are not able to afford the traditional outfit they perform in, and thus do not look uniform as they’d like to.
All money raised by this GoFundMe will go towards purchasing professional mariachi outfits for their members in need of financial assistance, which cost a total of $13,000 for the 40 members; they hope to meet this goal by March 15th, 2020 so the kids can be ready and prepared for their event in April 2020. The plan for these outfits will be to pass them on to the next wave of incoming students and every few years buy just 2-3 new outfits.
