BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Some local musicians who helped out during the Camp Fire are now hoping for the community's support.
The Las Plumas Oroville High School band planned to compete at the heritage music festival in April this year.
However, when the Camp Fire happened, the students put the fundraising for the trip aside and decided to volunteer and help the community instead.
Now, they are still $12,000 short of meeting their fundraising goals and they are hoping for the public's support to help them bring home the top prize.
"The trip to Seattle is very important to us," said Band Director Michael Walker. "It's one thing to play for the local community, it's another to get a sense of what its like outside of our comfort zone."
The band students are looking forward to the trip.
"Our goal is to prove to the rest of the country that we are not to be reckoned with," said Megan Walton, a student musician in the band.
The school has partnered with the Chico Theatre Company on a fundraiser.
Concession sales from this Valentine's Day production of Mama Mia will go toward helping the students.
