Our 7th Annual Drummathon was our first ever to be held at Grandscape in The Colony, TX. The event featured several notable changes including sound and giant video screens courtesy of Grandscape, raffles replaced with the opportunity to donate into two different clear drums, a later start of noon as opposed to 10:00 a.m., and finally, touchless eBay auctions. These auctions made it possible for bidders to scan QR codes to bid and get alerts on their phones if they were outbid, allowing to opportunity to increase their bid from whereever they are - plus people unable to attend in person could also bid online! As a result of these changes coupled with a great line up, we experienced record breaking day of fundrasing! Our normal funds raised are on average around $10,000 (with the previous record being around $12,000). This year we raised $18,000 the day of which added to online fundraiging brought the over all total to $51,886. It was our fourth straight year to meet and "BEAT!" our $50,000 goal! Thank you to all the fundraisers, sponsors, donors, volunteers and supporters for helping make Drummathon 2021 a huge success! Below are all the details from Drummathon 2021.

Drummathon is an annual family-friendly fundraising event that brings together the drumming community (of all skillsets and ages) for one common goal: to fight breast cancer.
As Drummathon works to fight breast cancer, it is also a celebration of life, music, and passion! Top fundraising drummers have the opportunity to showcase their talent in front of family, friends and attendees on a global stage! The event also features auctions, sales of Official Breast Cancer Can Stick It! merchandise and Drummathon gear, with some great musical guests sprinkled throughout the event. It's fun for the whole family! Leading up to the event, drummers, musicians, and friends alike raise funds online to compete for a plethora of awesome prizes.
The 2015 inaugural event was hosted by Dan Shinder of Drum Talk TV and kicked off right with rock star drummers Carmine Appice (Ozzy, Rod Stewart, Ted Nugent), Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio, Heaven & Hell), and Matt Starr (Ace Frehley, Bang Tango, Mr. Big). Since that time, the celebrity alumni list has grown exponentially.
Drummathon is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase your talent and help eradicate breast cancer at the same time -- an experience that can't be beat!
