Musical Duel to Raise Funds for Local Band
Michael Mitnick & Sydney Thayer performed a musical duel on December 18, 2015 to raise money to make sure that every student who wants to participate in the band can do so. They played Solfeggietto by CPE Bach and arranged the music for their perfmorance.
"Good Night, Sleep Tight" Campaign
Me4You collected several hundred pairs of new and like-new pajamas, and stuffed animals, for children affected by Hurricane Michael, Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Me4You volunteers combined a pair of pajamas with a stuffed animal in a ribbon-tied package. These "Good Night, Sleep Tight" packages were sent to local charities in Houston, Texas and throughout Florida for distribution to those families with children that need them.
“Me4You” programs serve as a catalyst to gain the commitment from younger students to participate in similar programs in the future.
