CRAWFORD, TX (KXXV) -

A big honor for a Central Texas high school band, but it comes with a big price tag.

Under a new director with a political background, the "Pride of Crawford, Texas" has been invited to the Presidential Inauguration on Jan. 20th, but in order to get there they need the help of Central Texas.

Daniel Yguerabide has turned the band program at Crawford High School around in just one short year.

Recently, Yguerabide was voted by the majority for a delegate position at the Republican National Convention in Ohio. While there, he had the chance to network and an invitation for his band to perform at the inauguration as well as his band's motto is "Make Band Great Again" came to.

The trip to our nation's capital will cost the Crawford Band $50,000, and with the deadline of Jan. 10th approaching quickly, the Pirate Band has welcomed donations. 

Former Dallas Cowboy Butch Johnson was one of the many who donated.

"And so I want to thank the Crawford community for having faith in me, having faith in these kids, and their program ultimately, and thank the people that have helped us and the inaugural committees that have considered us," Yguerabide said.

 The Crawford High School Band is still $25,000 short of being able to make the trip to D.C.

"Please consider us, a few dollars... send it our way," Yguerabide said.

You can donate to the Pirate Band's GoFundMe page here
