Treasure Coast Music Teachers Association presented a check for $4,000 to Helping People Succeed, its selected charity to benefit from the 2014 Music-Thon at Treasure Coast Square Mall in Jensen Beach.
Each year, the music teachers select a local non-profit organization to support for its programs and services in the community. Cindy Kessler, head of the regional music organization and head of Stuart School of Music, said the funds are raised by the music teachers, students who participate in the Music-Thon, and guests attending the event.
More than $5,000 was raised during the 2014 “Music-Thon” with $4,000 to benefit programs and services at Helping People Succeed, celebrating its 50th anniversary. The non-profit organization serves more than 4,500 families in Martin, St. Lucie and Okeechobee counties.
Helping People Succeed families are the recipients of approximately 250 pairs of shoes from dress, sport, casual and comfortable styles, thanks to a donation from the Village Bootery in Cedar Pointe Plaza in Stuart.
Tim O’Brien, general manager of the Stuart shop, said this has been a project of Village Bootery for 33 years, dating back to its Lake Park founding store and a store in Palm Beach Gardens. The Village Bootery and Helping People Succeed are both celebrating 50-year anniversaries.
The halls of the Treasure Coast Square Mall in Jensen Beach were ringing with music on Saturday, December 6th as the Treasure Coast Music Teachers Association presented its annual Music-Thon with 150 students in concert.
Students performed on piano and flute, vocals and in a choir throughout the day as family, friends, and mall shoppers were entertained and applauded the varied talents of the young musicians. The Music-Thon was presented at the entrance to Macy’s at the north end of the mall.
Helping People Succeed is pleased to announce its new Human Resources Coordinator Kelly Cuevas, celebrating 10 years with the local non-profit organization.
Cuevas moved into the HR position, after long-time HR manager Madeleine Greenwood stepped back to part-time assignments. Cuevas and Greenwood shared many of the HR duties.
