A dedicated group of local musicians have volunteered their time and talent to raise money specifically to benefit Polk music education through fundraising that will help get musical instruments into young hands.More details to come regarding admission, our website, etc. In the meantime, please contact Tommy Butch or Brian Everhart if you are interested in being a sponsor or making donation before, during, or after the event.In addition to the music, we will have food and beverage vendors.
