In honor of Phish's upcoming shows at the Hollywood Bowl, April 21st, 22nd, and 23rd, the Mockingbird Foundation is sending checks for $1,000 to support music education through three nearby programs, all in Los Angeles, CA:
- Larchmont Charter Hollygrove, will get outfitted with a new PA system and microphones,
- Mar Vista Elementary will be able to purchase 45 children's sized Fender guitars, and
- Palms Middle School will acquire some new musical instruments for their students.
These unsolicited "Tour Grants" are part of an effort that now totals $230,000, over 10% of all Mockingbird grants to date. We're doing them for all 8 shows this spring, and all 23 this summer, updating a running list on the Foundation's website as we go, and welcome Phish fans and others to make a tax-deductible contribution supporting this effort.
