Although Arsenal’s Season has ended, we still have one more challenge to complete.

The DCI Summer Giving Challenge is an opportunity for DCI’s participating ensembles to compete against each other to see who can raise the most money for their organization. For this year’s challenge, it was suggested that participating ensembles donate 1% of their final tally to IN STEP: Women of DCI, a new initiative designed to highlight and advocate for the participation of women in DCI Programs.

This season, 35% of Arsenal’s marching members were female, and so we feel that 1% is not enough.

Just as a third of our corps consisted of young women, Arsenal will donate a third of our proceeds to IN STEP. So when you donate, you’re not just supporting Arsenal and the marching arts in the Southwest- you’re supporting the incredible young women throughout the country who participate in this activity. So what are you waiting for?
