Nashville, TN (RestaurantNews.com) Logan’s Roadhouse® has launched the second round of its “Music In Schools” grant program supporting K-12 music education across the country. Now through May 20, eligible non-profit K-12 music programs across the U.S. can apply to receive grants from the total amount of $25,000 of funding that will be available in this round.
In the past few months, Logan’s Roadhouse has donated more than $28,000 to 24 school music programs across the country. In the first round of grants, Logan’s Roadhouse purchased high school band instruments, elementary school rhythm instruments, sheet music for bands and choirs and even helped contribute to a school’s trip to Carnegie Hall.
“Music is one of the core foundations of Logan’s Roadhouse, and we’re proud to support these future music makers and teachers on their journey,” said Logan’s Roadhouse CEO Sam Borgese. “We’ve seen how these grants can make a tremendous difference, and we want to do our part in this ongoing effort to see that our children have access to music education.”
