The BG Singers, in partnership with the Community Foundation of the Village of Buffalo Grove and Friends of the Parks Foundation of the Buffalo Grove Park District are looking for artists to volunteer to paint ukuleles to benefit the Ukulele Kids Club (theukc.org).

This organization has donated over 13,000 ukuleles to hospitalized medically fragile children in over 312 locations around the world. Your participation as an artist will enable us to have local businesses purchase and then display their ukulele to create a public art display throughout the community, and in addition, a medical grade ukulele will also be sent to to Lurie, Advocate or Comer Children's hospitals .

 

A $100 donation will: Send a medically approved ukulele to Comer, Lurie or Advocate Children's Hospitals with music therapy departments. And, your business will receive a ukulele (in your choice of color) to be decorated by you or the we will decorated it to be displayed in your business to create a public art display; or, you may simply buy one/give one to the hospital and for personal gifting.

For further information, please contact Linda Rosen at: LRosen@bgparks.org.
