When you make a donation to Rock for a Cause you are gifting more than you could imagine. The funds from the 2016 Rock for a Cause will benefit the Del Couch Music Education Foundation, a non-profit organization designed to give children the opportunity to explore the world of music.
Not only does the Foundation help children develop their musical abilities, but it also opens up more doors to life-changing opportunities. For instance, S-One’s goal with this year’s Rock for a Cause is to send five Foundation students to Berklee College of Music Summer Programs. Foundation star and Bradenton-native Sam Woolf, who was a finalist on the 2014 season of American Idol, got his chance to audition for the show while attending a summer program at Berklee.
In addition to a chance to attend a summer camp, the Foundation offers ongoing mentoring, performance opportunities and many ways for kids to explore their love for music in an enriching environment.
Here are just a few ways your contribution can help:
- $100 gives a student one month of guitar or voice lessons
- $500 provides a keyboard or a guitar for the Foundation
- $1,000 helps create a full in-studio production of a 6-song EP
- $5,000 is a scholarship to send a student to a music education summer camp
