Experience the greatness of Texadelphia, located at 100 S. Central Expy, Suite 44, Richardson, TX 75080. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the band, so tell everyone you know to come eat at Texadelphia, and be sure to mention the Golden Eagle Band!

This is a wonderful, no brainer way to raise money for the band program… you gotta eat!
