Madison Music & Arts Launches New Holiday Fundraiser,

Madison, NJ October 5, 2016   Madison Music & Arts is kicking off of its holiday fundraiser, Holiday Blossoms, which will replace their annual fruit sale. This year, those who want to support MMA can choose from a wide selection of beautiful indoor blooming bulb kits with everything needed to grow a holiday season blooming flower.

“The MMA does so much to support our performing ensembles,” said Russ Batsch,  Director of Bands at Madison High School. “This bulb sale has the potential to raise much needed funds for instruments, equipment and performance opportunities for our students.”

Bulb kits range in price from $20 - $40 and include varying colors of amaryllis or bunches of paperwhite flowers. There is much more information about how to order at www.madisonpublicschools.org/MMA.

"Our teachers and students are very excited about this new sale,” said District Supervisor of World Languages/Visual and Performing Arts Stacy Snider. “In addition to being wonderful holiday gifts or beautiful decor for your home, the money raised helps all the arts programs in Madison and the 1500+ students who participate in art, music and theatre in the five schools." 

Madison Music & Arts is honored to partner with the Madison Eagle Christmas Fund, a 41-year tradition of neighbors helping neighbors who have fallen on hard times.  This group of volunteers works to share the joys of the holiday season by distributing toys, meals and gifts to families and isolated senior citizens in Madison. 

“We sincerely appreciate Madison Music and Arts for selecting the Madison Eagle Christmas Fund to be a recipient of proceeds of their Bulb Sale,” said Gary Ruckelshaus, the fund’s chairman and a former Madison mayor.  “We are humbled to be selected from among the many other worthy causes and we pledge that the donation will help to make Christmas brighter for our less fortunate Madison neighbors.”   

Bulb kits can be donated to the Madison Eagle Christmas Fund.   MMA will make a special delivery to the Fund organizers, so the bulbs will be included holiday baskets.
