Other ways to Support


Members of the Sacramento Mandarins Drum and Bugle Corps are seeking sponsors to help offset the costs of their Summer Tour. The Mandarins will travel via bus to competitions throughout Northern and Southern California, the Southwest, the Midwest, and finally to the Drum Corps International World Championships held in the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. The entire amount of your generous sponsorship donation goes directly towards each member’s tour fee.

Feed the Dragon

 At the Mandarins, we’re gearing up for an electrifying summer of performances, rehearsals, and unforgettable experiences. Every member of our corps- member, staff, and volunteer, alike- relies on four meals a day throughout our intense 75-day summer season, not to mention the pre-season preparation. Feeding a world-class drum and bugle corps is no small feat – it’s a community effort!

Dress the Dragons

We are seeking sponsors for our 2024 uniforms, and you can help us Dress the Dragons!  Sponsors can even select a specific uniform number and support their Dragon! Multiple uniform sponsorships are encouraged! 

By sponsoring a uniform, the performer keeps their uniform, and you will receive a commemorative photo of the corps in uniform and a public thank you for your support
