In the first half of 2017 PROWUS awarded a total of $5,000 in scholarships to 8 music students in the PDX area. Our next round of applications will be in November 2017 for which we have another $5,000 in our budget. To continue our efforts and increase our reach, we will need to raise $18,000 for our 2018 scholarship program.
We are excited to be working with School of Rock in 2018 for our ‘Best of Portland 6’ concert fundraiser. In 2017, the ‘Best of Portland 5’ fundraiser concert had over 560 attendees, with performances from 9 local bands of all genres and a very successful auction. Our volunteer board is excited to hold this event again and would love to see more community involvement.
