We’ve Lost Family…Here’s how you can help

Pride of Yukon Marching Band honoring Matthew J. Silva on game night.

Pride of Yukon Marching Band honoring Matthew J. Silva on game night.

The Pride of Yukon Marching Band lost a dear member named Matt Silva to a car accident on August 26, 2016. The 17-year-old senior was a great friend and brother to those in the sousaphone section and will be missed dearly. He had an amazing smile and a way about him that could brighten the room and make anyone laugh. He was a little goofy and but he owned it.

In the end, Matt’s death was a tragedy for not only his family but his friends and fellow students. However, he will live on, as his parents selflessly allowed Matt to be an organ donor and give the gift of a long healthy life to several others.

In dealing with all this, his family has accrued lots of medical bills due to Matt’s accident. Please consider donating to help this great family during this time of tragedy.
