LAKEWOOD RANCH, FLA. — When Paige Merriman won the 2015 Rock for a Cause, the high school sophomore requested donations be made to her school, Lakewood Ranch High School as well as the Del Couch Music Education Foundation, where she receives performance and recording mentoring.
Paige is pictured with the school’s chorus, led by teacher Giselle Panagiotakis. “The Rock for a Cause event was amazing,” Paige says. “I hope the school uses the money to get a new piano and equipment for the choral department. I hope it all is well distributed and appreciated.”
The $3,500 donation to the school was made possible in part to a generous contribution from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, the charitable organization that awards grants and scholarships throughout the community. In 2015, the foundation donated more than $16 million in the areas of education, health and human services, the arts, animal welfare and the environment.
“The Community Foundation of Sarasota County has been an enthusiastic and irreplaceable partner with S-One’s Rock for a Cause during its first two years,” says Shauna Malgieri, S-One product specialist and executive committee chair of Rock for a Cause. “We look forward to partnering with the foundation again this year, as well as our new non-profit partner, the Del Couch Music Education Foundation.”
