You may have a few questions about Rock Raizer and hopefully I can answer some of them in this first blog.
What is Rock Raizer? This is a nonprofit organization based out of Austin Texas. We provide music scholarships to underprivileged kids. We host two fashion shows a year, our first being April 17th at Encore club on Red River rd. downtown Austin. visit rockraizer.eventbrite.com for more show details.
Who is Rock Raizer? Well, it’s me, Julie Taylor and a great cast (the board) of people who help me breathe life into Rock Raizer. These people are: Sarah Harris, Giacomo Forbes, Karen McGuire and Anna Strauss. Also our ‘right hand man’ Brian Miller and Jenn Cvengros. The list of course can go on and on but these people are essentially the guts of RR.
Who will benefit? Kids from the Big Brother/ Big Sister program, any foster child or child in a shelter but not limited to. We will have our site up and running in the next month with an application process and more details on this.
All music teachers will have passed a background check that will participate in our program.
As our first event seems to be right around the corner, so many new faces surface with new and exciting info for our cause. It’s been such a mix of emotions: inspiration, disappointment, faith, stress, happiness, excitement, etc.
Anyhow, I plan to keep this blog as down to earth as possible, letting you in on all of the trials of this process. It’s a lot of hard work, happiness and excitement and we want to share all of it with you- the blog reader.
