Music…Medicine for the Heart and Soul
The March 6th, 2014 “Music…Medicine for the Heart & Soul” event was the Foundation’s first major, annual fundraising event and featured six-time Grammy Winner and recording star, Amy Grant. The event was an incredible success, with all event proceeds (over $62,000) being donated to the four beneficiaries.
The event is a total volunteer effort. No salaries or wages are paid to the organizers or volunteers. Many of the costs have been reduced because of the support and generosity of the vendors. Amazing in-kind donations have been made. Cash contributions are needed and appreciated to underwrite all event expenses, thereby maximizing the amount available to donate to the selected non-profits. Every effort is being made to provide a high quality, special event at minimal expense.
