Jersey Boys Chicago Raises Over $40,000 for VH1 Save The Music Foundation!

December 8th, 2008

News from Broadway In Chicago is thrilled to report that the Chicago company of Jersey Boys has raised $41,524 to benefit Chicago Public Schools through the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.

As part of the Chicago company’s one-year anniversary this October, Jersey Boys pledged to donate a dollar from each ticket sold to an October performance, enough to provide instruments to jump start an instrumental music program in one of Chicago Public Schools. Jersey Boys has raised enough money to contribute to not one, but two Chicago Public Schools this year. The VH1 Save The Music Foundation, in partnership with Comcast, will add to the Jersey Boys contribution and donate a total of $60,000 worth of new musical instruments to restore two of Chicago Public Schools’ music education programs for the 2008/2009 school year. The recipients of this award will be announced on Tuesday, December 16, 2008.
