DID YOU KNOW: The Cavaliers serve approximately 70,000 meals during the course of the drum corps season! Thanks to our incredible cooks and volunteers, our small (and hungry) army gets the fuel they need to tackle a rigorous summer tour.

Since 2015, Cavalier families and alumni have lead the way in sponsoring individual meals and days through our Cav-A-Meal Program.

Now, your Cavaliers are busy preparing for the 2017 summer tour, and we're asking for YOUR help launching the Cav-A-Meal Program to support our meals and snacks to Fuel the Machine!


  • PB&J sponsorships - $50
  • Gatorade sponsorships - $75


  • Breakfast - now $250 instead of $350
  • Lunch - now $400 instead of $500
  • Dinner - now $550 instead of $700
  • Snack - now $150 instead of $200 and
  • Full Day sponsorship - now $1,250 instead of $1,500

Click on the buttons above or visit to choose the tour date and meal you wish to sponsor.
We will recognize ALL of our donors with a special photo shared on our social media channels (Facebook main page and our parents page). 


Utilize your network of family and friends to sponsor a loved one in the organization. For example, the families of multiple snare drummers could all get together to donate a sum of money to sponsor meals dedicated to the percussion.

And can get in on the action by sponsoring a meal and designating which section you’d like to support!

Please give the Cav-A-Meal program thoughtful consideration. The guys are working hard and need your support to help fuel their efforts this summer. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Contact with any questions, comments, or feedback for our Cav-A-Meal program.
