OPUS FOUNDATION I DONATION
Lowrey Raises $25K
for Music Education
The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation and Lowrey surprised students at the Farnsley Middle School in Louisville, Ky., with $25,000 worth of instruments for the school’s music program. The school’s current music program budget was $5,500 a year for both orchestra and band.
Lowrey’s L.I.F.E. (Lowrey Is Fun and Easy) members nationwide, mostly retirees, held dozens of auctions and bake sales and sold orange wristbands to help raise funds for Lowrey’s Kids Need Music program. L.I.F.E. chose The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation as the recipient of its fundraising efforts.
Local Louisville businesses and Central Music, a Lowrey retailer and sponsor of L.I.F.E., partnered with the local Kroger grocery store to also raise funds for the effort.
