A gesture of friendship…

The Chicago Police Department bagpipe and drum band has been invited to New York to participate at the 9/11 National Memorial 15th anniversary service – and we need financial support.  

Founded in 1999, the Pipes and Drums of the Chicago Police Department is fraternal organization focused on fostering the traditions and respect garnered through playing the great highland bagpipe and Scottish drum.  Our mission is simple: to always be in service to our comrades, their families and friends in their time of need.

We have been privileged to participate in honors ceremonies of our own fallen heroes as well as Peace Officers and Firefighters across our Nation – and now in New York.

We can NEVER FORGET their sacrifice.

The band has setup a FundRazr campaign.  Please consider supporting our endeavor to participate in the 15 year anniversary of the events of 9-11 in New York City so we can stand with our comrades from the NYPD and share our gift of music; music is the social act of communication among people, a gesture of friendship, the strongest there is.

Thank your for your consideration.
