Gillette 2024/2025 fundraising events open!

We have officially kicked off our 2024/2025 Gillette fundraising season!

The DSMA raises over $50,000 annually at Gillette Stadium, which helps cover nearly half of the total amount we need to raise every year to support our programs. Every student benefits from Gillette shifts – if your student is in any of the performing groups, especially those at DHS, then you should be volunteering for at least one shift per season to help raise funds.

Volunteers also earn $50 per shift towards student assessment accounts. So you get money attributed to your student, while helping to reduce overall costs for all of our music groups that need to travel, compete, etc.

Saturday April 27: NE REVS vs Inter Miami
Saturday May 18: NE REVS vs Philly Union
