Practice For Paws

Practice For Paws

Students of Cindy’s Piano Studio raised money for the Chautauqua County Humane Society by practicing the piano.  For two weeks students recorded their practice time and then collected monies from sponsors.  The students asked their family, friends, and neighbors to sponsor their practice time for a penny per minute of practice.   

The sponsors were invited to attend our benefit recital held on Saturday, June 14th.   Mrs. Robison brought one of her piano keyboards to the pavilion at Ellery Park in Bemus Point on Saturday morning.  Even though the weather turned very cold and windy, the students were brave and entertained us with pop and movie music.  Popcorn was provided to help make the event even more fun. 
Students were awarded prizes for collecting the most money, getting the most donors, and for the most practice time during the two weeks.

A check for $345 was presented to Sandy Gulloth and Jill Patterson, volunteers for the Humane Society. Mae, a very cute stray beagle, was in attendance to give her applause.  Mae is available for adoption at the Humane Society. 

Students performing were Eliza A., Eliza and Harper D., Stephanie D., Makala N., Isac and James P., Liz and Sarah Q., Sophia and Sydney S., and Alex S.
