FREE Ukulele Classes at UNCG

I received this email today, and wanted to pass it along. 

The email I received:
I work in the Music Department at UNCGreensboro, and will be starting the third iteration of a class titled Ukulele for Two (Thursday, January 9). Classes are designed for children ages 8-13, and one parent/guardian. *8-year old participants are welcome. However, to be successful, 8-year old participants need common home-practice time with the adult participant. 
Classes will meet on Thursdays from 6:30 - 7:30 PM in the Music Building at UNCG. Attached to this email is a document that includes the date schedule and materials required for the class. Other than purchasing your own instruments, tuners, and books, there are no costs for participating in the class. The only cost we foresee is parking in the deck at the music building, and the unlikely need for a replacement string (usually Low G - $2.50 per string). Please let me know if you remain interested in participating in participating in Ukulele for Two. And please feel free to let others know about the class. 
Thank you, Sandra Teglas, Ph.D. Program Coordinator Music Research Institute School of Music, Theatre, and Dance at the University of North Carolina Greensboro (336)256-2581

Silent Auction Fundraiser for a local 16 year old with cancer

I met the Silent Auction coordinator for this event over the weekend at the GSOFamilies Small Business Bazaar. This story touched me. I wanted to share the event and let all of you know about the Silent Auction, and if anyone is interested in contributing - please contact as requested below! Thank you! -Becky

Dear Prospective Partner:

Got Game Fastpitch will be holding a girls fastpitch softball tournament along with a silent auction fundraising event on December 7th & 8th at the Eden YMCA and Freedom Park located in Eden NC. Got Game Fastpitch is a softball travel tournament organization that will host 32 teams in different age brackets on this weekend bringing at least 325 players and their families. All of the funds raised from this event will be used to support a 16 year old that is suffering from a childhood cancer.

Taylor Foster is a 16 year old that loved to play softball until she was diagnosed with cancer in 2010. She relapsed in 2011 and she is still fighting. She loves now to help coach a travel ball team and reach young ladies by inspiring them to never give up and never take things for granted.

We're in the process of collecting merchandise for the event, and I'm writing to request your assistance in making the Got Game Fastpitch’s event a success. By donating an item, you'll be making a tax deductible contribution that will help Taylor Foster continue her fight of cancer.

Additionally, you'll benefit from exposure of your company's name to those who attend the event. The merchandise you give will be on display through the event. As a donor, you'll be invited to attend the event, so you'll be able to meet prospective customers and even possibly find a few bargains of your own.

Won’t you consider donating an item to support Got Game Fastpitch’s event? You may reach me at 336-580-8777, or email me at needacut@hotmail.com by December 5th to let me know how you would like to participate in the Got Game Fastpitch silent auction.

John Turner
Silent Auction Coordinator
