City Parks and Recreation Dept hopes Islanders will ’buy a key’ for music

Mercer Island Parks and Recreation is raising money to purchase a Yamaha Clavinova digital piano.

The city hopes to expand musical educational and performance options by owning a piano at the Community and  Event Center. A piano will enable the department to offer performances at Senior Social programs and events, Senior lunches, gallery receptions, and lessons. The piano will also be available for use by special event rental users.

The department is looking to the community to help make this a reality.

For $100, anyone  can “buy” a key. The goal is to raise $6,500 enough, to purchase the piano.

Everyone who ‘buys’ a key will have their name on a piano key poster board at the Community and  Event Center until after the fund raiser is over, as well as on a permanent plaque on the piano.

What a great holiday gift idea for the music lover in your life!
