The Big Band Bash

Over 40 years of ΦΒΔ (and all UMMB alumni and friends!) came together to honor Thom’s legacy!

Keynote speaker Bob Morrison gave us an emotional and entertaining tour through Thom’s life and career.

The ever-witty Matt Dunphy ’03 gaveled-in $6,000 in donations through our silent and live auctions, while the Band Parents Association presented a donation of $1,440 bringing the total raised for the new Thom Hannum Scholarship Fund to $30,000, easily surpassing the amount needed to endow.
