BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The sounds of the Golden Band from Tigerland are filling the halls of the PMAC building tonight.
It's the 33rd year the Fighting Tigers are holding their annual fundraiser.
Today, they got a little practice run playing for hundreds of students.
The Marching Tigers are raising money this year to help them get to Ireland to march in their St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
“This event, in recent years, has raised about $100,000 for our department. It is the band department’s biggest fundraising event – actually, one of the biggest fundraising events on campus as well," stated Director of Athletic Bands Roy King.
The concert itself starts at 7:00 p.m. and tickets are still available.
