Give to the Max Day!


Give to the Max Day is November 12, 2015. Click here. Help us reach our goal of purchasing new instruments!

During the past two seasons, the marching band has needed to borrow mallet instruments, but it also needs access to these instruments throughout the year for practice and other performances. We hope to raise $14,000 for the purchase of 3 marimbas and 2 vibraphones. Buying new equipment for marching band will also reduce wear on the concert instruments and extend their lives.



Kowalski’s Groceries For Good Causes



Beginning July 29th, the Minnetonka Band Boosters will be part of Kowalski’s Groceries For Good Causes program.

1. Minnetonka Band Boosters will have a labelled container on the Groceries For Good Causes board located near the main exit of Kowalski’s Excelsior Market, 440 Water Street.
2. Any time you make a purchase, slip the receipt into the container.
3. Each quarter, Kowalski’s Markets will make a donation to the Minnetonka Band Boosters based upon the number of receipts collected. It is NOT based upon dollars spent.

Kowalski’s Excelsior Market opens Wednesday, July 29. Be sure to check it out and tell your friends and family.

Be a Band Booster!



MUSIC MAKES A DIFFERENCE! And the Minnetonka Band Boosters are dedicated to the support and promotion of the entire band program in their pursuit of musical excellence at Minnetonka High School.

The boosters provide a wide variety of much needed services.

Money we raise is used to hire guest artists, bands, conductors and instructors; it purchases music, instruments and equipment; and it provides scholarships for all-state students, travel study participants, marching band campers and more.

We produce printed and online promotional materials. We help out at concerts, competitions, football games and parades – with everything from maintaining uniforms to hauling equipment to providing refreshments. We also organize banquets and other social events.

Our meetings are held from late summer through the school year. Come help us plan and organize another exciting year for our students! Click here to download the membership form.
