Donors are helping the South Shore Drill Team march at President Obama’s Inauguration next Monday, reports WGN.

Monday morning, a big check came in that now leaves the team short only a few thousand dollars.

Tim Rand, Principal at Chicago Football Classic donated $10,000 to the team this morning. “It’s a good organization,” he said, “very easy to work with.” Rand said it’s gratifying to see the team have an opportunity to perform for the President.

Fifty of the team’s 300 members will march in Washington, DC.

The Drill Team raised about $40,000. They are now just $4,000 short one week before the big parade.
