The D’Addario Foundation Hosts Instrument Collection Event

Mike Lawson • News • October 25, 2017

The D’Addario Foundation has announced it will partner with Hungry for Music, Todd Rundgren’s Spirit of Harmony, Instruments in the Cloud, and Lyft to host an instrument collection event at D’Addario & Company headquarters in Farmingdale, Long Island on Thursday, November 2 from 1-4 p.m.

The D’Addario headquarters is located at 595 Smith Street, Farmingdale, New York.

Hungry for Music’s “Big Bertha” RV will be on display in the front parking lot on Smith Street, and volunteers will be there to accept donations of gently used instruments. In addition, Lyft brand ambassadors will be giving away swag and supporting efforts. For every new Lyft passenger who takes their first ride using code, IMACHAMPION, Lyft will donate $5 to the D’Addario Foundation.

“We have seen a significant uptick in requests for instruments from the many music programs that apply for Foundation support. We are determined to fulfill the needs of these programs as completely as possible to ensure that kids are not being turned away for lack of resources,” said Suzanne D’Addario Brouder, executive director of the D’Addario Foundation. “By collaborating with amazing organizations like Hungry for Music, Spirit of Harmony Foundation and Instruments in the Cloud, we maximize our collective goal of making it possible for more children to have access to transformative music education.”
