The La Plata Business Association (LPBA) presented Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) a $10,000 check on Nov. 4 to support fine arts for students.
The donation came from the proceeds of the association’s second annual Rocktoberfest 2015, a small-town rock music festival presented by the LPBA and produced by Island Music. The association also donated proceeds from its inaugural event in 2014 to the school system.
Superintendent Kimberly Hill and members of the Spartones, a group of vocal music students from St. Charles High School, accepted the check from LPBA President Keith Grasso on behalf of CCPS. The Spartones performed briefly for LPBA members to show the school system’s appreciation and to provide a sample of the student talent their donation will support.
