Foregoing the traditional birthday party, Sycamore student Noelle Sharp recently hosted a Donation Party and requested her guests contribute a donation to the Sycamore Music Boosters instead of a traditional gift.
Noelle is a sixth-grade student at Sycamore Middle School, as well as a growing musician playing violin in orchestra and clarinet in band.
This is the second year in a row Noelle has chosen the Sycamore Music Boosters to receive her birthday donation.
As she presented her donation to Music Boosters President Lisa Smith, Noelle said she hoped her donation would help support the young students in the music program, but especially to help bring back the elementary school spring sings.
The Sycamore Music Department and the Sycamore Music Boosters, a nonprofit volunteer organization that supports all students in grades K-12, encourages others to consider making a donation and support these music programs.
For more information on donating, email Lisa Smith at LisaSmith1615@comcast.net or ScottMertens, Sycamore Schools Music Department chairman, at SMertens@syc427.org.
