PVF Designated Fund, Terry’s Kids, Helps Youth Showcase Their Musical Talents

Terry's Kids

Terry’s Kids, one of PVF’s designated funds, provides music educational clinics, concerts, and studio and live performance projects for kids of all ages.

Recently, Terry’s Kids helped a bright 17-year-old named Monty obtain a playable saxophone. Monty comes from a tough home situation, and he works odd jobs while in school to support his family. Despite his situation, he held a 4.0 grade average and is now on scholarship to Columbia University starting this fall.

As a saxophone player, his instrument was essentially unplayable, but it was all he could afford. By gathering donations, Terry’s Kids was able to provide him with a new Selmer Mark VI Tenor Saxophone. Now a dedicated young musician has a great instrument to showcase his talent!
