Our goal is to raise funds and provide grants to individuals as well as to educational institutions that are directly involved in music education as students or educators.
The primary fundraising event is currently our annual HAMMOCK MUSICFEST held in “The Hammock” in Palm Coast, Florida. Among the ways we accomplish our goal is by providing individual grants for qualifying young musicians for the purchase of instruments, grants for the cost of attending performance competitions, as well as, other music education events sponsored by elementary schools, high schools and colleges or universities. We will also consider grants to high school and elementary school music programs that are in danger of being eliminated as a result of school budget cuts.
Funds raised by donations from the patrons of the HAMMOCK MUSICFEST are the sole revenue raising device at the moment; however as the event grows, we will be exploring all possibilities for maintaining and growing the viability of music education as part of the overall education curriculum in our community.
The HAMMOCK MUSICFEST located on the east coast of Florida is an annual festival featuring a stellar group of musicians. Food, drink, and festivities complement the live music to create an awesome experience. 100% of the proceeds raised from the HAMMOCK MUSICFEST support young aspiring musicians with the furthering of their music education and experience.
The annual festival is on Sunday, October 2nd, 2016 at Bing’s Landing overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway in Palm Coast, Florida (in the Hammock on the west side of State Road A1A). Food will be available for purchase at Captain’s BBQ, some of the best TRUE SOUTHERN BBQ and rated one of the Top Ten Best BBQ Restaurants in the U.S. by Trip Advisor!
Tickets for this non-profit event are $10.00.
