The goal for this year’s Pledge Drive is $300,000, with a suggested donation of $1,300 per child. The first 50 donors at that level will be entered into a raffle for a Nintendo Switch, and the first 100 donors at that level will be entered into a raffle for a $100 gift card! This year, we will be holding the raffle for the Nintendo Switch at the end of Fall Fest, so donate early! Bring your checks to Fall Fest or donate online via PayPal. Every gift, at every amount, plays a crucial role, helping to fund both music and STEAM education, in addition to contributing to many other initiatives.
