ORGANIZING BATTLE OF THE BANDS AT THE HARTSDALE FARMERS MARKET ON SATURDAY, JUNE 11TH
LOOKING FOR BANDS TO PERFORM AT FUNDRAISER
Do you have musical talent? Do you think you have what it takes to play in front of Greenburgh? If so, come play at the annual Greenburgh Battle of the Bands on Saturday June 11th
at the Hartsdale Farmer’s Market. Even if you don’t have musical talent, come out and support and listen to local bands. This year, for the first time, the Battle of the Bands will benefit the Gift of Life International Foundation. The Gift of Life Foundation began in 1975 as a project by the Manhasset Rotary Club and has grown into a full-fledged organization which strives to increase “…peace and understanding by facilitating free medical services to children suffering from congenital heart defects and other similar or allied illnesses…”. The Battle of the Bands will be an opportunity to help disadvantaged children both domestically and internationally. Clubs from local schools will be there to help raise money for the Gift of Life as well as own their school cause. If you are interested in playing in the Battle of the Bands or participating in the fundraiser through your school’s club, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Town Clerk Judith Beville is working with the students on a daily basis –helping them organizing this initiative.
