Woodland Elementary District 50's Middle School Marching Wildcats band will join forces with the Warren Township High School Marching Blue Devils and the Viking Middle School band to perform their marching routine in exhibition style at 7 p.m., Sept. 9. The event will be at the Warren Township High School Stadium O'Plaine campus, 500 N. O'Plaine Road, Gurnee. Admission is free. Students are asking for cash donations to literally "Fill the Drums" to help raise funds for the Children's Organ Transplant Association (COTA) in honor of Madelaine Lefebvre, a student at Warren Township High School and graduate of Woodland. This annual exhibition began as a way to support those affected by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Each year, Gurnee's marching bands come together to perform for friends, families and the community.
