Saturday and Sunday Crown to Partner with Samaritans Feet to Distribute Shoes to Needy Youth
Carolina Crown is excited to be hosting NightBEAT once again this Sunday at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem, NC. Our mission, Developing Lifelong Excellence, extends beyond the Crown Drum Corps and directly into the local community. And to this extent, CrownCARES is a community service extension of the Crown Organization. And we are excited to announce our first ever Community Service Day!
CrownCARES, in conjunction with Samaritan’s Feet, Director’s Showcase International, United Way of Forsyth County and Love Out Loud WS, will be distributing new shoes, socks and a message of hope to over 1,000 children in the Winston-Salem, NC community.
In addition, three local high school marching bands will be the recipients of brand new marching shoes on behalf of Carolina Crown and Director’s Showcase International.
The Winston-Salem Forsyth County Bands will also benefit by receiving revenue from the sale of the event programs. Considering the thousands of fans that attend our annual NightBEAT Tour of Champions event, this is a very lucrative fund-raiser for an important cause, keeping music arts in our schools. According to Brad Oliver, Director of Arts Enrichment with the school district, “we are so pleased with the partnership we have fostered with the team at Carolina Crown. In exchange for providing housing and support for the event, the kids in our band programs will benefit directly from sale of event programs. This is a significant and necessary means of income for our programs ”.
The CrownCARES Community Service Day is scheduled for Saturday July 30 from 1pm-4pm with distributions happening at three local elementary schools: Ashley Academy (1647 Ashley School Circle, Winston-Salem, NC 27105), Easton Elementary (734 E. Clemmonsville Rd., Winston-Salem, NC 27107) and Kimberly Park Elementary (1701 N Cherry St., Winston-Salem, NC 27105). Potential volunteers are encouraged to register to help at www.samaritansfeet.org.
Members and volunteers from Carolina Crown will also participate in this important community effort on Sunday prior to the start of NightBEAT outside of BB&T Field from 2pm to 4pm.
We want to offer our special thanks to South State Bank and Hanes Brand of Winston-Salem for their sponsorship of CrownCARES.
