This week, West Shore Bank presented proceeds from Rhythm & Dunes to local music programs for the 6th year in a row. Record crowds flocked to Waterfront Park to enjoy the two performances this summer. Donations totaled this year at $12,000 and are distributed to Ludington Area Schools, Mason County Central, and Mason County Eastern.
“The turnout for this year’s concerts was the highest we have experienced,” said Raymond A. Biggs, President and CEO of West Shore Bank. “It’s an honor to come together with our friends and neighbors to celebrate and support music education for our local students.” During the past six years, over $42,000 has been donated to these local music programs. Funds have been used to buy and repair instruments, purchase sheet music and provide accessories for students with financial needs. Mason County Eastern offers a K-12 music program for students and hired a full-time music instructor with funds donated from these concerts.
