All of the funds were presented to the Indianapolis office of the American Red Cross in honor of Music for All and ALL of the band and music students and boosters in Americaduring a presentation at Avon High School on November 20, 2012.

The Hurricane Relief initiative started with a $100 donation from Music for All’s President and CEO, Eric Martin. Additional funds were accepted at the Music for All Information & Awareness Booth on the concourse of Lucas Oil Stadium. On Saturday during Semi-Finals and Finals of the Championships, volunteers from Avon High School Orchestra from Indiana came through the stands with buckets to accept donations.
