An Event That Pulls Heart Strings…
The Heart Strings Gala brings our supporters together for an evening of fun and fundraising. Proceeds are used to fund instrument purchases, provide full scholarships to summer music camp, assist with music lesson tuition, and help develop an endowment that will allow the charity to carry on its mission and work should the organization itself end.
