ReTUNE NASHVILLE has presented a $50,000 check to MUSICARES NASHVILLE FLOOD RELIEF, to aid musicians affected by the flood. The presentation was made this morning (6/8) at the MUSICARES office in NASHVILLE.
This distribution of funds is the result of one year of flood relief efforts led by ReTUNE NASHVILLE volunteers logging nearly 9,000 hours of volunteer time with more than 50 volunteers. In one year.
This donation supplements the initial $12,000 previously donated to MUSICARES NASHVILLE FLOOD RELIEF and the NASHVILLE MUSICIANS ASSOCIATION FLOOD RELIEF FUND, in DECEMBER 2010, bringing the total to $62,000 donated by MUSICARES NASHVILLE FLOOD RELIEF.
MusiCares Executive Director DEBBIE CARROLL commented on the donation. “Without the generosity and support of individuals and organizations such as ReTUNE, our work in providing support to the music industry after the devastating Nashville flood of 2010, would not be possible. ReTUNE’s donation will make a tremendous difference in the lives of many music people and their families who are still struggling from this disaster.”
