Thanks to the generous support from our community and supporters, through our launch party and fundraiser last year, Thank You for the Music (TYFTM) was recently able to make its first official donation as a society!
On Sept. 28, TYFTM President, Shelley, Vice President, Kelly, and our youngest member, Bella, presented a cheque for $2,000 to the Surrey School District. The cheque was presented at North Surrey Secondary, where part of the donation will support tunings of the school’s piano. A great group of music students, along with Mr. Jon Krueger from the Performing Arts Department, were on hand to accept the donation and perform a song for us. It was a very special moment.
The district will put the donation towards the purchase of two digital keyboards, which will be loaned out to several schools on a rotating basis, plus two tunings for the piano at North Surrey Secondary.
Thank YOU for helping bring music to the lives of students in Surrey!
