Grand piano fundraiser nearing its goal
The fundraising campaign to purchase a Steinway concert grand piano for the new Storm Lake High School performing arts auditorium is hitting a high note, but is also racing against the calendar. The price for the piano is only guaranteed through December. The Crescendo Club is in charge of the fundraiser, which so far has collected about $110,000 en route to the $140,000 total.
"It's amazing the support we have received. Funds have come in from all over - from people in town, and a lot of former students. It's exciting," said assistant principal Jeff Tollefson. "Bob Ohrlund has been heading up the fundraising and working very hard." / Graphic courtesy SLHS
