Pitman High School Principal Rod Hollars, Athletic Director Dave Walls, Band Director Rueben Modesto and a host of Pitman High band students and supporters invaded the McDonald’s on Geer Road Tuesday evening.

McDonald’s owner Mike Jevert donated 25 percent of sales on Tuesday’s peak hours to the Pitman High Marching Band, which has raised about $70,000 toward its goal of $106,000 to send nearly 120 students to Washington D.C. this summer to perform in the Independence Parade on July 4.
