Music4life fundraiser set for Sept. 19 to benefit Kent students

Group provides musical instruments to students who cannot afford them

A fundraiser for the Music4life program is set for 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 19 at Kent Lutheran Church, 336 Second Ave. S.

The program provides free used instruments to students in the Kent School District.

The event will feature cellists from the Auburn Symphony. Light refreshments will be provided and people can learn more about the program.

Music4Life collects used musical instruments, pays to have them refurbished and then donates them to the Kent School District for students who aren’t able to afford their own instrument.

Research shows that children who participate in instrumental music activities do better in many ways. Musical training has numerous benefits including helping with brain development, keeping kids engaged in school and helping to build imagination and intellectual curiosity.

The Booster Club members of the Kent Chapter of Music4Life are thrilled to be able to provide these instruments to our local public school students and hopes that the community will join them at their first fundraiser to help keep the program going and growing.

Music4life also works with school districts in Auburn, Bremerton, Edmonds, Everett, Highline, Marysville, Northshore, Riverview, Seattle and Shoreline.
