UMBC Down and Dirty Dawg Band launches fundraising campaign for New CD

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
###

The UMBC DDDB (Down and Dirty Dawg Band), in partnership with the Office of Student Life and Office of Institutional Advancement, has launched a fundraising campaign using UMBC's GiveCorps platform. GiveCorps is a platform similar to Kickstarter, but tailored towards non-profit entities.

In May 2013, the band recorded over 20 tracks of rock, jazz, latin and ceremonial songs in an effort to launch their second CD, "Black and Gold." The goal of this fundraiser is to finance the production costs associated with making the CD. Once funds have been raised, "Black and Gold" will be sold at UMBC Athletic events and online. Revenues will be used to purchase new equipment for the band.
