THANK YOU for your generosity! We were hoping to reach our goal to be able to bring the Sudler Trophy home to the UI campus, but we were blown away by how quickly the Alumni Band family and friends responded and helped us hit that goal in less than 48 hours. This shows that band is family and we take care of family.


After speaking with Dr. Bush, the trophy will be ordered very soon with the goal of having it at UI Homecoming 2020 (Oct. 23-24) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of originally receiving it on the 140th year of the Hawkeye Marching Band (Hint: save these dates NOW!).


Again, many thanks for making this a reality for the Hawkeye Marching Band/Alumni Band family. GO HAWKS!

A Special Message from Dr. Eric Bush

Congratulations Alumni Band members! You've raised $3,000 for the Sudler Trophy. Please view this special message from Dr. Eric Bush. Thank you, and Go Hawks! 



What a fantastic start!

We are overjoyed by the response we’ve received so far for our Sudler Trophy campaign! In just two days, we’ve EXCEEDED our goal of $3,000! With this money, we’ll be able to purchase a replica of the trophy and an appropriate case to hold the trophy. Thank you so much for your support!


Though we have hit our initial goal of $3,000, we aren’t stopping now. We've set a stretch goal of $5,000, which we hope to hit before our deadline on October 23! Whatever additional funds we raise through this campaign will directly support the organization we love so much—the Hawkeye Marching Band.


Let’s rally together and raise as much money as possible for HMB to show our love and support for this great program! Please continue to help us reach as many supporters as possible by sharing our campaign page with other Alumni Band members, friends and family. The link to share is:


Thank you so much for your early support! On Iowa, Go Hawks!
