Find A Cure.
Bridge Arts & Education, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit promoting education and collaboration as a means to grow our music community, is hosting its first annual Play-a-thon fundraiser. Our goal is to help support a different organization each year. For 2020 we are committing to the Alzheimer’s Association of the Hudson Valley.
From November 16 through December 13, we are inviting students throughout the Hudson Valley to join the Play-a-thon fundraiser to support those suffering with Alzheimer’s disease. We cannot do this with you!

How to ask for pledges
"Hi, I am participating in a musical play-a-thon to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association. I will be participating by practicing music over the next 4 weeks. Would you be willing to support me and donate to this wonderful cause? You can make a "per hour of practice" pledge or a simple flat rate pledge.
The first 25 registrants will earn a free T-shirt mailed to your home. During our play-a-thon we will post a variety of challenges with prizes. Challenges will be posted on our Instagram, Facebook and Website. Join in as many as you would like.
Your school or studio is eligible for prizes.
$500 grant awarded to the public school group that raises the highest dollar amount.
