Here at the Beta Gamma chapter of the University of Texas at Austin, we provide service to the Longhorn Band such as carrying and handing out water at football games, and taking medkits to all band events. During band week, before the band is set, we provide lunches for all returning and prospective members. Additionally, we serve our local Austin community. This year, we participated with Special Olympics bowling, Ronald McDonald, Girl Scouts, the Austin Marathon, and we adopted a local underprivileged high school band (in which we played with them at their football games, and provided private lessons to their students). Our philanthropy is with Make-A-Wish Foundation, in which we helped a 3-year-old girl named Calleigh with Leukemia get the chance to go to Disney World. We also were fortunate enough to be able to donate to our adopted school to support their band program.
Tau Beta Sigma is a National Honorary Band Sorority that provides service both to our band and our community. The Beta Gamma chapter is one of the largest in the country and serves the Longhorn Band and the University of Texas at Austin
