Sponsor a Meal
& Fuel the Phantom Regiment!
Fueled by Phans is your opportunity to ensure that each member’s life-changing performing arts experience includes healthy, nutritious meals.
Did you know that a single member of the Phantom Regiment drum corps burns up to 6,000 calories a day?
Keeping our members strong and healthy throughout a summer full of rigorous rehearsals and powerful performances adds up. It costs Phantom Regiment upwards of $1500/day to feed our members, instructors, volunteers, drivers, and tour staff.
Fueled by Phans is your opportunity to help offset the costs of providing some of the best meals in drum corps. By sponsoring a meal, a full-day of meals, or donating any amount, you are playing a direct part in making Phantom Regiment happen!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Yes! Once you’re ready to checkout, you will be prompted with a form where you can leave a name, team name, or message. Messages are limited to 500 characters. Please note that we may not be able to fit your entire message on our whiteboard, but we will do our best to include it in social media posts and it will be listed on the Fueled by Phans calendar above.
We will share your sponsorship on the Food Truck whiteboard as well as on social media. Please be advised that due to the nature of tour your “Thank You” post may not go out on the day of your sponsorship. But we will do our best to post ASAP!
Be sure to add all 4 meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, & Snack) to your cart while choosing your meals.
Our kitchen crew works very hard to plan menus that take into consideration dietary needs, preferences, product availability, and nutrition. Due to the nature of touring with a fleet of over 200 people, it is not possible for us to incorporate special requests.
Over the years, we’ve seen several groups of individuals band together to sponsor a meal during our Fueled by Phans campaign. We created Team Sponsorships to make it easy for groups of individuals to make a donation directly to Phantom Regiment while also benefiting the group. This ensures each donor gets their own donation confirmation for tax-filing purposes.
Creating a team is easy!
- Designate at least one person from your group to serve as the Team Leader.
- The Team Leader should click here to create a fundraising page.
- Fill out the appropriate information, including setting a Goal Amount for your team.
- Once created, share the link to your team page with the members of your group.
- When you hit your Goal Amount – or when you are satisfied with the total amount raised – send an email to [email protected]. Robin will email you back with a code that will allow you to secure your Day/Meals for your team.
What if my team doesn’t hit their goal amount? As long as you’ve raised at least $200 you can sponsor a Snack on a non-premium tour day.
*Please note: Our staff has MANY responsibilities during the summer months. We do our best to keep track of your donations, but we do not have a way to automatically send out reminders about your team’s efforts. Meals often fill up toward the end of the season. We cannot guarantee meal sponsorships if we run out of meals to sponsor before your team meets its goal!
Fueled by Phans is one of our most popular fundraisers. Meal sponsorships often fill up quickly, especially for popular events. We recommend that you secure your sponsorships early. Meal sponsorships are on a first-come, first-served basis, and we do not hold meals without proof of payment.
Every day is a special day for our members. If your preferred day/meal is already sponsored, we encourage you to pick a different meal/day and leave an encouraging message for the Phantom Regiment!
No problem! Just be sure to check the anonymous box during checkout.
We are happy to accept a check as payment for your meal sponsorship. Once we receive your payment, we will provide you with a special checkout process to secure your sponsorship. Please email [email protected] for instructions if you’d like to pay with a check. Otherwise, you can pay with any major debit/credit card, Venmo, Paypal, or ACH through the links above.
