Leadership Music members, family, and friends donated $25,605 to help alleviate hunger in the Middle Tennessee area, enough to offer more than 100,000 meals to those in need. The organization greatly exceeded its original fundraising goal of $5,000.
The classes of Leadership Music held a friendly competition to see which class could raise the most money for the hunger drive.
The Class of 2012 has been named the winner of the competition, donating the most funds, in honoring classmate Jaynee Day who serves as President and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and serves on the board of Leadership Music.
“We always knew that the alumni of Leadership Music are extraordinary, but you managed to prove once and for all that you truly are the BAE…best alumni ever! We are so proud to be part of an organization and an industry that lives by the creed ‘from those to whom much is given, much is expected.’ Although we framed this as a friendly competition among classes, it was really all about feeding the hungry,” says Diane Pearson, President of Leadership Music.
The top five class standings, in order of the most money raised, are:
Class of 2012
Class of 2003
Class of 2007
Class of 2008
