Saturday I got to shoot an event called Play It Forward. It's a charity event of music to raise funds for our local public school music programs. Local artists came out to donate their time and talent for the cause. There was an auction for a fiddle signed by Charlie Daniels that went for $1000, two 50/50 raffles (which ended with both winners giving back their winnings), and support from sponsors such as The Polk Theater, Fresco's, The George Jenkins Foundation, and more found here: Play It Forward.
The music was awesome, among the bands were performances from local schools.
When next year rolls around, consider making a night of it, enjoy music in a great venue, and support your local schools!
