Last nights First Friday Street Fest

What a blast last night was.

The Eustis Mustang Music Association was out raising money for the band program. Our number one goal was to collect money that would be used to repair instruments that would be needed for our scholarship programs. This would be part of the program where a child who can not afford an instrument has the use of one for the school year. This means that the instrument must be repaired and in perfect working condition prior to adopting it out.

We were able to raise funds and awareness to our programs and concerts.
We also appreciate all the upcoming 6th grade band students who came over to say hello. And it was nice seeing our returning 7th and 8th graders especially those wearing their band shirts!

The highlight of the evening is when a local musician came up. He is known by Jungle.... we picked up the drum sticks and started to jam out. Swirlin and twirlin the sticks. He was a high school band member that never grew out of music and even has his own CD out. Not a Eustis Native Jungle fits right in here at the downtown Eustis Area. Downtown for down to earth people!

Winners from last nights drawings were:
Jorge Caller who won a free dinner for two at Sol De Mexico Restuarant
We appreciate our great sponsors for that donated item!

Also the winner of free sponsorship for the year is Katie Williams from The Hair Cuttery in Eustis
