Donor has offered $5,000 in matching grant to replace Choir Room Piano!

Dear Choir Family,

We need to replace our choir room piano! We have a donor who offered up a $5,000 matching grant. The donor will match dollar for dollar up to $5,000. Already one person has come forward with a $200 gift for the match. If we can fill up the matching grant, we will have money to buy a replacement piano. We need to act quickly! The window for getting the piano we seek is short.

We have our eye on a 2006 Schimmel SP182 available through Classic Pianos. It just became available and is a rare and highly sought after piano, because it is a well built, piano from a company with a long, proven history of building stable and excellent pianos. This piano will last Tigard for 50 years!

Please consider helping toward this worthy and significant cause!

Please PM me or call me at 503-805-5392.

Thanks,

Mr. Hawthorne
