  • 2024 Scholarship Donation Letter

    Music Mentors, Inc. is the non-profit booster organization that serves the bands at both Shore and Memorial Middle School as well as all the bands at Mentor High School.  The Fighting Cardinal Marching Band is our largest group with almost 200 members.  Please consider donating to our organization, Music Mentors.  We will be hosting an online Chinese auction event this spring.  The funds we get from the auction will be used to give our Seniors scholarships to go towards their college choice. 

    Without support from our local and neighboring business, Music Mentors would not be able to continue giving our Senior scholarships.  Please consider donating to the online Chinese auction.  You can donate a basket, item to put into a basket or a monetary donation.  Donations for the online Chinese auction can be mailed to the following address by March 25, 2024.  I would also be happy to pick up any donations.

    It was a great football season!
