CMS-D & the S.O.N.G. Project are Going Out to the Ballgame!

Hello CMS-D Friends!

We are partnering with The S.O.N.G. Project Youth Organization to raise funds for students to attend the S.O.N.G. Project Camp 2017, which will be held July 31st to August 11th, here at the MSU Community Music School-Detroit. We are looking for volunteers to help us work the concession stands for the Tigers games! See the game, eat a free hot dog and get the satisfaction of affording students with the opportunity to engage in the arts!

The training date is Wednesday, April 19th at Comerica Park, 2100 Woodward in Detroit. Training starts at 6:00 p.m. If you are interested in volunteering to help with Tigers games, please send an email to confirm that you are available on Wednesday, April 19th. Contact Jessica Clements at cleme104@music.msu.edu to rsvp for training. All volunteers must be trained. We need as many volunteers as possible!

The commitment after training would include at least one of the following game dates:

*Friday, April 28, *Saturday, April 29, *Friday, May 19, *Saturday, May 20, *Friday, June 2,
*Saturday, June 3, *Saturday, June 17, *Friday, June 30, *Friday, July 14

You may volunteer for as many games as you would like!

Thank you so much for your willingness to help us impact the lives of youth through music!

Go Tigers! Go MSU! Go CMS-D!
