Efforts to collect donations for OU marching band a scam, band's director says
Charitable donors beware: a door-to-door fundraising effort claiming to benefit the university's marching band is not affiliated with OU, the band director said.
The Pride of Oklahoma marching band is not soliciting funds nor is it playing at the Olympics, director Brian Britt said.
A south Oklahoma City woman has filed a police report after giving a donation to a solicitor who told her the “Sooner Marching Band” was headed to the Olympics to play on behalf of OU, according to a press release.
The woman said she was asked to write her check to the Rick Allen Fulfilment Agency.
“This activity is not affiliated or authorized by OU,” Britt said.
