The Music for Everyone Great Grant Giveaway was held at Hand Middle School on May 24th, 2016. The non profit group was able to raise enough money to purchase over 600 new instruments for grant winners across Lancaster County. Students performed from 4pm-6pm while teachers and grant winners stopped by to pick up the instruments.
We stopped by to capture footage for an upcoming project during the Great Grant Giveaway. I met Brendan Stengle and some of the volunteers around 4pm in the parking lot as they began unloading instruments. We spent about an hour and half moving everything into the gym and organizing. It’s been a few years since I’ve crossed paths with John Gerdy, the head of MFE. We talked briefly, but I was in full filming mode and couldn’t be distracted from the action. Following the event, I realized that I had likely over-shot and had enough footage to put together a fun little instagram follow up. This is what we came up with.
