11th Annual

Pat Cope Memorial Bandcakes breakfast

The Pat Cope Memorial BandCakes event will take place on Saturday, March 20th, 2021.This event will look a little bit different this year due to practicing safety measures during this time of Covid. Instead of coming to the high school to eat breakfast and listen to music, we will be providing a generous pancake breakfast, delivered to your vehicle when you pull up to the high school. A live stream will be available to hear students play and can be enjoyed from the comfort of your home while eating breakfast. Tickets are $8 (+ processing fee) and breakfast pickup will run from 8:00am to 10:30am. at Kings High School.



remembering pat cope

Pat Cope was a tremendous supporter of all things Kings. She taught in our district at both JF Burns and Kings Junior High working with special education students. She was a huge advocate for her students and continually went the extra mile for them.

Pat and her husband Mike served many roles as band parents—including presidents of the boosters—while all three of their children went through the band program here at Kings. Two of her kids have returned to Kings to help instruct the marching band.

Pat was the founder of our BandCakes event. She researched and planned the fundraiser for almost two years before putting the plan in action.

Pat was always supportive of the band and was a true band fan. Even on the coldest or hottest of days, you could find Pat clapping for the kids. She continued to be a big band supporter even after her youngest had graduated out of the program.

I could always count on a kind word of support from Pat even while she was battling cancer.  She was an inspiration to all of us as a parent, colleague, neighbor, friend and band fan.

kings band boosters used instrument drive

Do you have an instrument gathering dust around the house?  Kings Band Boosters, through the sponsorship of Kaylyn’s Hope Chest, can help bring the instrument back to life!  While a student at Kings, Kaylyn played the flute and her family would like to honor her memory and passion for music by making instruments available to members of the community that cannot afford an instrument.  We are collecting used instruments and having them serviced so that they can be loaned to students who would like to join any of the Kings band programs.  If you would like to donate an instrument, contact Lisa Gibson at kbbpresident1@gmail.com and we will make arrangements for pick up.
