Keep the music and youth of New Orleans alive

Date: Sat, Oct. 02, 2010

"Keep the music and youth of New Orleans alive" is a slogan coined by a supporter of the SilenceIsViolence Music Clinics to explain what the Clinics can do. This Threadhead sponsor has launched a campaign to raise $50,000 to support the Clinics through the Pepsi "Refresh" funding competition.

The Music Clinics, founded in memory of Dinerral Shavers, have been going strong for nearly 4 years, and start up again on September 21. Shamarr Allen will lead the Clinics once again, with his virtuosic touch on the trumpet and his magical, healing influence on his students.

Help us sustain this important program by visiting and voting--EVERY DAY!--for the SilenceIsViolence Music Clinics to receive funding this year! You can also always make a direct contribution via our website.
