The Suncoast Blues Society (SBS)  thanks each one who donated, considered donating, and may donate when conditions improve. Presently your donations support Outreach Programs (Blues in The Schools, Blues in The Community, and Blues in The Library). The outreach programs feature performances in the counties within our Tampa Bay communities.

As a result of your gifts SBS will establish two new therapy theme programs.

  1. A beginner harmonica lesson, which assists with breathing exercises for those with COPD or asthma. In Tampa and for COPD veterans, James A Haley VA Hospital’s Whole Health Program has launched harmonica playing meetings.
  2. Likewise, SBS will sponsor guitar cigar box building workshop lessons. The program assists with occupational and physical therapies.and will include one or two guitar lessons.

Finally, your Giving Challenge donations benefit our community through

Using SBS member musicians as workshop leaders, and provide compensation for sharing their talents.

And your society enhances community partnerships, expanding The Blues by building relationships with new organizations.

Finally, creating new paths to share Arts & Humanities.  Your donations bring The Blues to those who otherwise might not have an opportunity to share the enjoyment.
