DGN Music Students Raise Money for Cancer Research

Music students at DGN have been working hard over the past week to raise funds for two worthy philanthropic organizations that support cancer research: St. Baldrick's, and LUNGevity.  

This morning, in Naperville, a team of DGN Band students participated in a 'walk' to raise money for LUNGevity.  As of this last night, nearly $4,000.00 had been raised by the student-organized "Band Geeks Unite"team.

Through online pledges and in-class donations, the DGN Band has raised over $5,000 for the St. Baldrick's 'shave' that is to take place this coming Tuesday.  

Contributions are continuing to come in, and it is expected that DGN music families will have raised over $10,000.00 within the next several days.

Thank you to EVERYONE who has participated in support of this worthy cause!
