We make lasting memories of fun educational experiences, and teach families and children how to make a creative difference for the future,” said organizer Sue Luley.

“The preservation of roots music is a key component to a.A.R.T.h.’S programs. eARTh has donated over $96,000 in musical instruments and equipment to Brevard county schools since 2005, this fundraiser is to assist EARTH in purchasing instruments for Mila Elementary School , in Merritt Island.

“Our goal is to purchase $10,000 in new instruments for each school, so the children can have hands on musical experiences in their classroom. Mila Elementary is a Title I school and many of the children in this school are on subsidized lunch and have special needs.

“Mila Elementary has minimal instruments in their music program. The music teacher receives a minimal budget of .50 cents per student per year for music instruments & supplies. Help us help these wonderful schools.

“eARTh Awareness loves kids and passing on the tradition of wonderful music. Music makes children smarter. e.A.R.T.h. is completely supported by contributions from the community and all contributions are tax deductible. All proceeds donated to e.A.R.T.h. are used to produce the annual event and enhance the lives of creative young minds. We are run by a volunteer board of directors who give countless hours to make this dream a reality.

Wristbands may be purchased from Downtown Cocoa Beach restaurants and bars, Island Music, Florida Discount Music, EARTH Board Members and Jack Link & Associates in Rockledge.
