Albany--  Some Dougherty County school band members spent the afternoon banging out songs to bring in bucks.

For six hours Tuesday, Monroe High School's band danced and played songs in the school's parking lot as part of the school's Spring Fling. They hope to raise $15,000.

They're the only Georgia band invited to perform in Washington D.C.'s Memorial Day parade. The trip is expensive, $687 for each of the band's 92 members.

"What we're doing is we're having this to try and raise funds to help all of them go because we are going and we are going to take the whole 92," said Monroe teacher Essie Singleton.

The band will spend four days and three nights in D.C. If you'd like to help out, call Monroe High or mail donations to the school.
