Local Food Bank & the Valley’s Musical Community
Profits from our first album, “Christmas in the Valley,” were divided equally between the Local Food Bank, which received $5,000 and initiatives dedicated to assisting musical growth in the Valley.
Our initial pressing of 1,000 CDs sold out in just 18 days last December. A re-issue has been done and 50% of proceeds will continue to go to the Food Bank, hopefully for some years to come.
Musicians Who Care recently purchased 25 ukuleles for the Windermere Elementary School Music Program and are also involved in financial assistance to the following projects:
- Sponsor to 2 local music festivals
- Contributed to a local band’s CD production
- Assistance to a new music-based day care center
The latest project is an album titled “Songwriters in the Valley,” and it features 22 tracks written and performed by local musicians.
50% of the proceeds from CD sales will help to provide a state-of-the-art sound system for the performing arts’ facility at the Valley’s new community center. This sound system will be used, not only for music, but also for a wide range of events that may include:
- Theatrical performances
- Dance performances
- Public address for sports events
Everyone in the Valley will at some point benefit from the use of this equipment. This community center has been talked about for some time now, and it is finally in the planning stages – this is happening! The community’s excitement and support on projects such as these has become the key to our community’s successes with cultural and artistic infrastructures.
