BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Park Forest Middle School band has been working to raise money to attend the Veterans Day Parade of Heroes in Washington D.C.

The school was hit by the August flooding and has been struggling to hit their goal. Since then, donors have come forward and pledged more than $10,000 to help with the trip, and that's before the band holds one final fundraiser to ensure they have all the money they need for a successful trip.

They will debut their new uniforms and their pieces for the parade in a benefit concert on November 2 at Mt. Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church at 6 p.m. Tickets are $20.
