"Please accept these instruments, one alto saxophone and one clarinet, as a donation to your wonderful foundation. My wife and I were the original owners back when each of our parents first purchased them. We both remember them making the sacrifice for us to have our very own instrument and pursue one of the greatest gifts in life, music. The enlightenment, friendships, and opportunities that music gave us should be offered to every child or teen growing up. Even though our music careers may have come to a close, we are forever changed with the appreciation and open ears that music has given us. That is why although we each have many fond memories with these instruments; we realize it is not fair to hold onto them only for sentimental reasons. They now belong in the hands of the next generation of musicians, who can follow the path of music and see what doors it may open for them.
Thank you for what you do, your Foundation is a symbol of the goodness in life."
