Lee County-- Some Lee County students plan to use music to drum up support for tornado victims in Georgia and Alabama.
The Lee County High School drumline will hold a Drum-A-Thon to raise money for storm victims in Americus, Baker County and Enterprise, Alabama.
Band members are pulling out all the stops. They'll perform song after song for a total of nine hours on Friday. To show how serious they are, some students will make a hairy sacrifice.
"If we reach our first goal of $1,000 before 2 o'clock, before our break, Cuts By Us has agreed, if I go over there on my break, to shave my head for me," said band member Garret Synder.
"There's not any certain amount that we're willing to go to and stop at or anything like that. As much money as people want to give us, we'll do whatever it takes to get whatever we can," said band member Jason Bowden.
Jason Bowden says he's known for his hair so he isn't too sure about cutting his, but he is willing to play for hours.
The Drum-A-Thon will take place on Friday in front of Wal-Mart from 9 a-m to 7 p-m with just a one hour-long break.
