What is "Drumming for a Difference"?

Each year we host an all-percussion concert in the Mukwonago High School West Gym featuring the percussion ensemble classes from Park View Middle School & Mukwonago High School as well as Blue2 Percussion. Over the past five years, thousands of dollars have been raised for organizations such as Rock CF, NAMI, and The Mukwonago Food Pantry.

 

Goodwill donations are strongly encouraged; all of the proceeds are given to a charity chosen by the band department staff.

Our fifth annual "Drumming for a Difference" Concert will take place on Tuesday, April 23rd at 7:00pm in the Greenwald Foundation Performing Arts Center. Admission is free with a suggested donation of $5. All proceeds will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee.

This event is unticked and open to the public; donations can be made at the door.

Performance recordings are available from most concerts and can be found on the Mukwonago Bands YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook pages.

About The Boys & Girls Club

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee has helped local kids and teens since 1887 when Annabell Cook Whitcomb transformed two basement rooms at Plymouth Church on Milwaukee’s east side into a Club for boys. Today, we are the largest youth-serving agency in the city and have grown to be one of the largest Boys & Girls Clubs in the country.
 

Every day, thousands of Milwaukee’s youth stream through our doors and participate in academic and recreational programming. We provide safety and support during critical hours of the day as well as meals, strong role models, organized athletics and access to the arts. At the Clubs, there’s a way for every kid to get involved and learn something new.

Our vision is to build the community’s social and economic fabric by ensuring the academic and career success of every Club member who walks through our doors or engages with our programs virtually. We achieve this by providing more impactful programs that appeal to our members, strengthen their academic performance, build character, encourage healthy lifestyles and meet the basic needs of Milwaukee’s youth.

None of our work would be possible without the commitment of 600 full- and part-time employees, passionate volunteers, as well as a dedicated Leadership Team and Board of Trustees. Together, the group is guided by the same passion that drove Cook Whitcomb all those years ago: To inspire and empower the youth who need us most.
