Ways to Support Centaurus Band Programs


Jigsaws & Jazz Benefiting CHS Band Programs

Camaraderie and Competition to Benefit All CHS Band Programs

The Centaurus Band Boosters Presents:
First Annual "Jigsaws & Jazz" Zero-Waste* Fundraiser
Saturday, January 25th, 2020 – Check-in starts at 9:30am, Competition starting at 10:00am
in the CHS Commons



Teams of four puzzlers work the same 500 piece jigsaw puzzle.  The first team to finish are the Champions! Each champion team member will receive the satisfaction of winning and bragging rights plus two gift certificates admitting four people to Rabbit Hole escape rooms (value $160)!  Each champion team member will also receive a puzzle from our puzzle company, valued at $20.

Everyone is eligible for some great door prizes from the Boulder Philharmonic, Boulder Symphony, and Durango & Silverton Railroad

Adult Teams: $50
Family Teams: $40 (at least 2 teammates must be related)
All Teachers Team: $40
All Student Team: $20

Check-in at 9:30 am and select your table.  Fully-wrapped puzzles will be placed on each table.  At 10:00 am sharp, teams will unwrap, dump, and begin puzzling.  All puzzling must be done at the table (no moving around). Stretching is allowed! Peeking is allowed and unavoidable! But, no interfering at any other team’s table!

No food or drinks will be allowed at the tables.  Headlamps are allowed if you need extra light. Team names are encouraged!

Curated jazz standards will be playing in the background. Coffee, tea and bagels will be served after the event.  What a wonderful way to spend a (sometimes chilly, sometimes crazy hot, sometimes rainy) Colorado Saturday morning in April with friends!


*Our goal is to send nothing to the landfill or incinerator and to conserve our natural resources. Please bring your reusable water bottles & travel mugs (with lids!) for your coffee and tea. Thanks for your support!

Virtual Marchathon

During this summer’s Band Camp (7/23/18 to 8/1/18), students will mail, email, tweet and tag friends and family living outside of Lafayette with this “virtual” appeal. The social media/letter-writing campaign extends our annual door-to-door Marchathon event’s reach beyond people living in Centaurus’ home area (Lafayette and parts of Erie). Learn more.


Centaurus High School Marching Band is preparing for its 2018 competition season, which means that our annual Marchathon is coming up soon. On Saturday, August 25, 2018, the marching band will don their uniforms and “march” door-to-door throughout our BVSD-CHS “neighborhood” (over 10,000 homes). Our band is a point of community pride, and the students work hard all day, meeting our neighbors and soliciting financial support! The Lafayette/Erie community always comes through in a big way for the Centaurus Warriors Marching Band, and it’s extremely important that every student participates in this fun (and essential) day of fundraising. Parent volunteers are always needed to drive and to serve lunch. Learn more.

COLORADO GIVES DAY: Encourage your Local Business Connections to Join this Day of Community Giving

Colorado Gives Day — Give Where You Live

CHS Band is proud to participate in Colorado Gives Day, an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado. On Tuesday, December 14, 2018, you can contribute through, and CHS will receive a portion of Colorado Gives matching funds. Give on Tuesday, December 4, or designate your gift ahead of time. Click the button to donate.

Colorado Gives Day features a $1 Million Incentive Fund, created by Community First Foundation and FirstBank. It is one of the largest gives-day incentive funds in the country. Every donation made through on Colorado Gives Day is boosted by the incentive fund, which increases the value of every dollar. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund. An additional $100,000 in prizes, sponsored by FirstBank, gives nonprofits an opportunity to win cash for their worthwhile causes.
