Mikes Music Donates To FDL SD Fine Arts Program
Dan Gilgenbach, owner of Mike’s Music, presents a $522 check to Paulene Mueller, Fine Arts Coordinator for the Fond du Lac School District, for use in the “Strike Up the Band” scholarship fund. The donation was raised at the recent 40th anniversary celebration of Mike’s Music which is located at 289 N. Main Street in Fond du Lac. Nicknamed the “SUTB” Fund, the Strike Up the Band Scholarship Fund was launched over ten years ago, through the initiatives of Leadership Fond du Lac, Mike’s Music, the Fond du Lac School District and many area musicians and bands, to help ensure that young students would have no barriers to participating in a musical experience. The fund is also used for maintenance and repair of musical instruments that have been donated to the school district.
