Wake and District is honored to be “Raleigh’s Pipe Band”. Since our formation in 2006, members of the band have participated in numerous City functions including Police and Fire graduation and award services, City Council ceremonies — and other stately events hosted by the City of Oaks. We’re privileged to be in service to North Carolina’s Capital City; our home town.
Partnerships are formed between a number of individuals, agencies or organizations with a shared interest. There is usually an overarching purpose to work together on a range of specific objectives. Wake & District is proud of all of our partnerships established over the years who support our mission to honor our fallen comrades and promote cultural heritage and enrich our community by providing traditional Bagpipe and Drum music .
While our supporters do include all of our family, friends and co-workers — we would like to point out just a few businesses and organizations who continue to support our aims and objectives:
- The City of Raleigh
- Tir Na nOg Irish Pub
- Raleigh Fire Department
- Raleigh Police Department
- Wake County Sheriff’s Office
- North Carolina State Highway Patrol
- USO of North Carolina
Partnerships are often formed from existing networks or where there is a history of collaborative work. However, there are circumstances where it is important to invite new partners to the table and Wake & District is always willing to work with others. We continue to seek out strategic partnerships which can bring together key agencies and organizations to identify long term priorities to sustain and improve our band – and the mission we serve. Through community planning strategic partnerships develop a sustainable community strategy where, by working together, we can make a bigger difference.
